An awesome book. The primary author is a former member of America's elite military unit commonly known as SEAL Team Six. In his years as a Navy SEAL, Mark Owen(for security reasons not his real name) participated in hundreds of missions around the globe, including the remarkable rescue of Captain Richard Phillips in the Indian Ocean (made famous in the movie CAPTAIN PHILLIPS starring Tom Hanks and The amazing Navy SEALS). The author was also a team leader on the daring raid in Pakistan which resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden. This SEAL was one of the first men through the door on the third floor of the terrorist mastermind's hideout, and witnessed bin Laden's death. The narrative of the assault on the terroist's compound is beyond captivating, and makes you think you were there not only blow by blow, but heartbeat by heartbeat on that historic day. The book leaves you with a deep understanding of the warriors who risk everthing for our country. The book also recognizes the incredible intelligence work of the determined female CIA officer essential to this successful operation. Her intelligence gathering connected critical points of information over a decade and led to one of the greatest victories in the War on Terroism. She had assured the President and the SEAls she was 100% sure that this was where bin Laden was hiding. History proves she was 100% correct.
