Reviews for Lone Survivor
So, another book about the war in A/stan. I'm an ex-pat Brit living in Australia with family in the UK & US military. Does this give me any right to comment.... DO I care?
A good book about a guy who is an unbashed patriot. Marcus Luttrell knew he wanted a life in the military. He trained before he joined, he trained damnd hard as you will read and then he signed on for the USN.
First part of this autobiog is just that the second part is what you pay your money to read. No, am not over dramatising this.
Marcus is a religious man makes no secret of this and nor should he.
He gives valuable insight into Terry Taliban and the incredible tribal bonds of the other folks in A/stan
The Talib dislike everything about the West, hate is a word Marcus uses a heck of a lot. They are fighting in their own backyard....(in fact of late 2011 you would say others are doing their bidding because the impact of the military fighting against them)
This is one mans survival to get home, to pay his respects to his mates and their families.
I don't give much away, because you should read this book, if you like it write a review of your own :). If you pan it then stand up and say so.
Thank you Marcus Luttrell by Roger Morris
