Description

    • Imported from USA.

    Told through the eyes of current and former Navy SEALs, EYES ON
    TARGET is an inside account of some of the most harrowing
    missions in American history-including the mission to kill Osama
    bin Laden and the mission that wasn't, the deadly attack on the
    US diplomatic outpost in Benghazi where a retired SEAL sniper
    with a small team held off one hundred terrorists while his
    repeated radio calls for help went unheeded.

    The book contains incredible accounts of major SEAL
    operations-from the violent birth of SEAL Team Six and the
    aborted Operation Eagle Claw meant to save the hostages in Iran,
    to key missions in Iraq and Afganistan where the SEALs suffered
    their worst losses in their fifty year history-and every chapter
    illustrates why this elite military special operations unit
    remains the most feared anti-terrorist force in the world.

    We hear reports on the record from retired SEAL officers
    including Lt. Cmdr. Richard Marcinko, the founder of SEAL Team
    Six, and a former Commander at SEAL team Six, Ryan Zinke, and we
    come away understanding the deep commitment of these military men
    who put themselves in danger to protect our country and save
    American lives. In the face of insurmountable odds and the
    imminent threat of death, they give all to protect those who
    cannot protect themselves.

    No matter the situation, on duty or at ease, SEALs never, ever
    give up. One powerful chapter in the book tells the story of how
    one Medal of Honor winner saved another, the only time this has
    been done in US military history.

    EYES ON TARGET includes these special features:

    * A detailed timeline of events during the Benghazi attack
    * Sample rescue scenarios from a military expert who believes
    that help could have reached the Benghazi compound in time
    * The US House Republican Conference Interim Progress Report on
    the events surrounding the September 11, 2012 Terrorist Attacks
    in Benghazi
    Through their many interviews and unique access, Scott McEwen
    and Richard Miniter pull back the veil that has so often
    concealed the heroism of these patriots. They live by a stringent
    and demanding code of their own creation, keeping them ready to
    ignore politics, bureaucracy and-if necessary-direct orders. They
    share a unique combination of character, intelligence, courage,
    love of country and what can only be called true grit.

    They are the Navy SEALs, and they keep their Eyes on Target.
