Nonfiction Book LONE SURVIVOR Is a Must-Read
The nonfiction book LONE SURVIVOR: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10 by Marcus Luttrell with Patrick Robinson is a must-read.
This is what my husband said to me when he handed me the book after he read it. And now that I have read the book, I agree.
Luttrell provides his first-hand account of the four-man mission into Taliban territory in Afghanistan in June 2005 that he alone survived. The description of how the four held out against a huge Taliban force is one of the most amazing warrior descriptions I've ever read or seen.
Yet there are other parts of this book that are just as compelling. These parts include the detailed information on SEAL training and the amazing story of the Afghan mountain village that risked every villager's life to prevent the Taliban from finishing off Luttrell.
If you want to know what our military personnel who go on clandestine missions do on these missions -- as well as understanding the "band of brothers" of our military -- read this book now.
