Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Four US Navy SEALS departed one clear night in early July, 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the activity of an al Qaeda leader rumored to have a small army in a Taliban stronghold. Five days later, only one of those Navy SEALS made it out alive. This is the story of the only survivor of Operation Redwing, SEAL team leader Marcus Luttrell, and the extraordinary firefight that led to the largest loss of life in American Navy SEAL history. His squadmates fought valiantly beside him until he was the only one left alive, blasted by an RPG into a place where his pursuers could not find him. Over the next four days, terribly injured and presumed dead, Luttrell crawled for miles through the mountains and was taken in by sympathetic villagers who risked their lives to keep him safe from surrounding Taliban warriors. A born and raised Texan, Marcus Luttrell takes us from the rigors of SEAL training, where he and his fellow SEALs discovered what it took to join the most elite of the American special forces, to a fight in the desolate hills of Afghanistan for which they never could have been prepared. His account of his squadmates' heroism and mutual support renders an experience for which two of his squadmates were posthumously awarded the Navy Cross for combat heroism that is both heartrending and life-affirming. In this rich chronicle of courage and sacrifice, honor and patriotism, Marcus Luttrell delivers a powerful narrative of modern war.

About the author

Biography of Luttrell, Marcus

Marcus Luttrell (born November 7, 1975) is a former Petty Officer First Class and United States Navy SEAL. He received the Navy Cross for his actions in 2005 facing Taliban fighters during Operation Redwing. Born in Houston, Texas and raised in Willis, Texas, Luttrell joined the United States Navy in March 1999. He began Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) training with Class 226 in Coronado, California. He graduated with Class 228 after suffering a fractured femur early in his training.

He was deployed to Afghanistan in 2005. Prior to Afghanistan, Luttrell had been part of SEAL Team 5 and participated in Operation Iraqi Freedom doing various operations there. Luttrell's bestselling book, Lone Survivor, tells the story of Operation Redwing and the navy SEAL Team 10 who were assigned to a mission to kill or capture Ahmad Shah (nom de Guerre Mohammad Ismail), a high-ranking Taliban leader responsible for killings in eastern Afghanistan and the Hindu-Kush mountains. Luttrell was the only survivor of the SEAL team.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5★ by 3reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Great for the Commute I was fortunate enough to see the author Marcus Luttrell speak for Veteran's Day. After hearing his story I had to read the book. His story is truly amazing and I wanted to share it with my brother and step-dad who like myself are also veterans. Unlike me, they are not avid readers so I purchased the audio book so they could listen on their commute to work. I got me one as well. Although I always prefer the book, the story is powerful enough that it will hold your attention. If you have a long commute I recommend giving the audio book a chance. 03/29/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Lone Survivor, a MUST read! First off, I have the upmost respect for all of our military serving across the world! This book, I purchased the audio CD, is now one of my very favorite ones. If you have not read or listened to it, I would HIGHLY recommed you do. It truly gives a person a new perspective on how these soldiers put their lives on the line for ALL of us day in and day out. Without giving away to much of the story for those who have not experienced it. All I can say is the will to live and the self preservation instincts and training these men receive and have within themselves is why they are the most ELITE, PRECISE, and called upon force that the president has at his disposal at a moments notice. Thank you to ALL of the SEALS and their families for all you do and to the SEALS who have made the ultimate sacrifice! I salute you all!The only easy day was yesterday!Tyler F. 10/28/2013
