Product description

In June 2005 four US Navy SEALs left their base in Afghanistan for the 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 than twenty-four hours later, only one of those Navy SEALs was alive. This is the story of team leader Marcus Luttrell, the sole survivor of Operation Redwing. Blasted unconscious by a rocket grenade, blown over a cliff, but still armed and still breathing, Luttrell endured four desperate days fighting the al-Qaeda assassins sent to kill him, before finding unlikely sanctuary with a Pashtun tribe who risked everything to protect him from the circling Taliban killers.

A truly amazing story, forget whether or not you believe if soldiers of any nation should be in Afghanistan, just read it and see if you are touched by what one team and in the end one man endured. Compelling reading, and as a SEAL oath states, one shall never lie, cheat or steal.

By Havasi Mate 11 Jun 2010 4

It is a breathtaking but quite controversial story of a SEAL, the only survivor of an unfortunate mission in the Afghan mountains. If you cannot stand American bravado, I suggest you forget it, but otherwise, try and read it. I appreciate and look up on brave warriors, however, some of the readers (special forces soldiers included) strongly doubt some of the parts written down here...
