Product description

The companion volume to the multimillion-copy classic "No Easy Day" by former Navy SEAL Mark Owen reveals the evolution of a SEAL Team Six operator Mark Owen's instant #1 "New York Times" bestseller, "No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission that Killed Osama bin Laden," focused on the high-profile targets and headline-grabbing chapters of the author's thirteen years as a Navy SEAL. His follow-up, "No Hero," offers a rare counterpoint: an account of Owen's most personally meaningful missions, missions that never made headlines, including the moments in which he learned the most about himself and his teammates in both success and failure. "I want "No Hero" to offer something most books on war don't: the intimate side of it, the personal struggles and hardships and what I learned from them," says Owen. "The stories in "No Hero" are a testament to my teammates and to all the other active and former SEALs who have dedicated their lives to freedom. In our community, we are constantly taught to mentor the younger generation and to pass the lessons and values we've learned on to others so that they can do the same for the guys coming up after them. This is what I hope I have done for readers of "No Hero."" Every bit as action-packed as "No Easy Day," and featuring stories from the training ground to the battlefield, "No Hero" offers readers a never-before-seen close-up view of the experiences and values that make Mark Owen and the SEALs he served with capable of executing the missions we read about in the headlines.

MARK OWEN is a former member of the US Naval Special Warfare Development Group, commonly known as SEAL Team Six. In his many years as a Navy SEAL, he has participated in hundreds of missions around the globe, including the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips in the Indian Ocean in 2009. Owen was a team leader on Operation Neptune Spear in Abbottabad, Pakistan, on May 1, 2011, which resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden. Owen was one of the first men through the door on the third floor of the terrorist mastermind's hideout, where he witnessed Bin Laden's death. Mark Owen's account of the raid, in "No Easy Day," remains the only accurate eyewitness account on record. KEVIN MAURER has covered special operations forces for nine years. He has been embedded with the Special Forces in Afghanistan six times, spent a month in 2006 with special operations units in East Africa, and has embedded with US forces in Iraq and Haiti. He is the author of four books, including several about special operations.
