Petty Officer Marcus Luttrell joined the United States Navy in March 1999, became a combat-trained Navy SEAL in January 2002, and has served in Afghanistan and Iraq. He lives in Texas.

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 bestseller. He lives in England and spends his summers in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, where he and Luttrell wrote LONE SURVIVOR.
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 be very close to Bin Laden with 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 fire 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 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.

    everything went great with this purchase. It came in the time and condition indicated, and the book itself was fantastic. I have a greater appreciation for our Armed Services and the Seal program in particular.

  • Everyone Should Read This Book
    Verified Purchase

    A few months ago, I saw an online article about Lt. Michael Murphy. I'm not sure why, but I felt compelled to read this book so I asked my friends if anyone had a copy. Two immediately responded. I thoroughly enjoyed reading every word Marcus Luttrell wrote. After finishing the book, I didn't even want to return it (which made me realize I had to have my own copy). Overstock.com had the best price hands down. Buy it and be proud to be American.

    This book was purchased as a gift after having checked the book out at the library. Enjoyed the book so much that I wanted to pass it on to a friend. If I'm lucky he'll return the book to me after he's through reading it so that I can add it to my permanent library of favorites.
