A #1 "New York Times" bestseller, this gripping work chronicles the true story of American heroism, written by a Navy SEAL who was the lone survivor of Operation Redwing, a secret military mission conducted in Afghanistan in 2005.
From the Publisher:
The leader, and only survivor, of a team of U.S. Navy SEALs sent to northern Afghanistan to capture a well-known al Qaeda leader chronicles the events of the battle that killed his teammates and offers insight into the training of this elite group of warriors. Reprint.
In 2005, Marcus Luttrell and his four-man Navy SEAL team were in the mountains along the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan hunting down a dangerous al Qaeda leader. The mission, Operation Redwing, suddenly came into jeopardy when they stumbled into a group of goat herders. They had two choices: kill the unarmed men, a violation of the rules of engagement, or let them go, risking discovery. Luttrell voted to let them go--a decision he has regretted ever since. Soon the team was surrounded by 80-100 al Qaeda warriors and not only did Luttrell's comrades die, but a quick-response helicopter carrying 16 other soldiers was also shot down. Luttrell himself was badly wounded, but managed to crawl seven miles to a Pustan village, where the villagers, obeying their ancient customs of hospitality, and risking a massacre at the hands of al Qaeda, hid Luttrell and nursed him back to health. In his best-selling memoir, Luttrell tells the harrowing account of the worst disaster in Navy SEAL history and his own miraculous survival.
