  • On a clear night in late June 2005, four U.S. Navy SEALs left their base in northern Afghanistan for the mountainous
    Pakistani border. Their mission was to capture or kill a notorious al Qaeda leader known to be ensconced in a Taliban
    stronghold surrounded by a small but heavily armed force. Less then twenty-four hours later, only one of those Navy
    SEALs remained alive.

    This is the story of fire team leader Marcus Luttrell, the sole survivor of Operation Redwing, and the desperate battle
    in the mountains that led, ultimately, to the largest loss of life in Navy SEAL history. But it is also, more than
    anything, the story of his teammates, who fought ferociously beside him until he was the last one left-blasted
    unconscious by a rocket grenade, blown over a cliff, but still armed and still breathing. Over the next four days, badly
    injured and presumed dead, Luttrell fought off six al Qaeda assassins who were sent to finish him, then crawled for
    seven miles through the mountains before he was taken in by a Pashtun tribe, who risked everything to protect him from
    the encircling Taliban killers.

    A six-foot-five-inch Texan, Leading Petty Officer Luttrell takes us, blow-by-blow, through the brutal training of
    America's warrior elite and the relentless rites of passage required by the Navy SEALs. He transports us to a monstrous
    battle fought in the desolate peaks of Afghanistan, where the beleaguered American team plummeted headlong a thousand
    feet down a mountain as they fought back through flying shale and rocks. In this rich , moving chronicle of courage,
    honor, and patriotism, Marcus Luttrell delivers one of the most powerful narratives ever written about modern
    warfare-and a tribute to his teammates, who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
