From the mountains of Afghanistan to urban sniper hides in Iraq, Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell has seen the worst of war at
the sharp end of battle. In 2006, the "lone survivor" of Operation Redwing returned to combat as a member of SEAL Team 5
to help take on the most dangerous city in the world: Ramadi, the capital of war-torn Anbar Province. It was there that
he took part in what has been called the greatest victory in the history of the U.S. Special Operations forces.
Luttrell's eye-opening narrative also offers powerful new details about his time in Afghanistan and his miraculous
rescue. After returning from that star-crossed mission with shattered bones and a broken heart, he thought of the men
who had given their lives to save him-and how he would have readily done the same for them. He wondered why he and
others, from America's founding to today, had been willing to sacrifice everything-including themselves-for the sake of
family, nation, and freedom.
A thrilling war story, Service is also a profoundly moving tribute to the warrior brotherhood and to the belief that
nobody goes it alone.
