    Petty Officer Marcus Luttrell joined the United States Navy in March of 1999 and became a combat-trained Navy SEAL in January, 2002. After serving in Baghdad, he was deployed to Afghanistan in the Spring of 2005. Patrick Robinson is known for his best-selling US Navy-based novels and his autobiography of Admiral Sir Sandy Woodward, One Hundred Days, was an international best-seller. He lives in England and spends his summers in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, where he and Luttrell wrote Lone Survivor.
    On a clear night in late June 2005, four U.S. Navy SEALs left their base in northern Afghanistan for the mountainous Pakistani border. Their mission was to capture or kill a notorious al Qaeda leader known to be ensconced in a Taliban stronghold surrounded by a small but heavily armed force. Less then twenty-four hours later, only one of those Navy SEALs remained alive.


    This is the story of fire team leader Marcus Luttrell, the sole survivor of Operation Redwing, and the desperate battle in the mountains that led, ultimately, to the largest loss of life in Navy SEAL history. But it is also, more than anything, the story of his teammates, who fought ferociously beside him until he was the last one left-blasted unconscious by a rocket grenade, blown over a cliff, but still armed and still breathing. Over the next four days, badly injured and presumed dead, Luttrell fought off six al Qaeda assassins who were sent to finish him, then crawled for seven miles through the mountains before he was taken in by a Pashtun tribe, who risked everything to protect him from the encircling Taliban killers.


    A six-foot-five-inch Texan, Leading Petty Officer Luttrell takes us, blow-by-blow, through the brutal training of America's warrior elite and the relentless rites of passage required by the Navy SEALs. He transports us to a monstrous battle fought in the desolate peaks of Afghanistan, where the beleaguered American team plummeted headlong a thousand feet down a mountain as they fought back through flying shale and rocks. In this rich , moving chronicle of courage, honor, and patriotism, Marcus Luttrell delivers one of the most powerful narratives ever written about modern warfare-and a tribute to his teammates, who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

    • Awesome Read

      I have read the book twice, shared the book with friends/family and would highly recommend the book to anyone who enjoys reading about the tough challenges facing our military men/women. Do not believe this book is only for military, ex-military or those with strong military ties...this book will appeal to any man/woman who believes strongly in patriotism, honor, dedication and love for their brothers/sisters in arms.. Most importantly, it's a story about guts, perserverance and the tenacity of the human spirit. I would give it 10 stars!

    • Amazing

      Wow. This is one heck of a true story. It just goes to show what our boys and gals are going through while at war and how political correctness is a cancer on our military. I can't believe this guy survived. This is a MUST read. I couldn't put it down.

    • Lone Survivor

      I could not put this book down. I finished it in three days. It opened my eyes to what soldiers specifically navy seals and special operations officers go through as far as training and what happens on the field of battle. I found Marcus' tale marvelous and a true memorial to friends killed in combat. I gave this book to a coworker who also enjoyed it.

    • Great Value.

      Every American male (not to exclude the females), mid-teen and above, should read this book. Amazing story long overdue to be told about the hero's who serve and protect the rest of the nation. Great value on O'stock, as always. Prompt shipping too. Get it as a stocking stuffer for all the guys you know for Christmas. Even the ones who don't read will read this. They will thank you and you as the one who gave it to them will take on a new significance in their lives. True story. Don't wait - get it while you can. For veracity purposes only, I'm a thirty year Air Force Colonel.
