Lone Survivor Book Review
This is an incredibly good read and a true account by the only surviving member (Marcus Luttrell) of a 4 man Navy Seal team whose mission was to go after a Taliban leader in Afghanistan in the 90’s.  I bought the hard cover book several years ago and it was very hard to put down, once I started reading.  Last year, I bought the audio book and it is also available as an eBook.
I was amazed at what these soldiers go through to become Navy Seals, and the story of their mission and fight with the enemy is incredible.  They are truly the “best of the best”.  I highly recommend this book and have had a much deeper respect for the men and women in our Armed services than I ever did before reading it.  Notice how tall Marcus is (he is on the far right in the picture)? He refers to his height many times in the book, now, I know why!

It is so sad that he is the only one that survived of those four heroes, it will bring tears to your eyes.
I am such a fan of this book and that is the truth! After I read it the first time, I passed it on to my brother in Minnesota and another in Milwaukee, telling them both I wanted it back. And I did get it back, with rave reviews!
The book is available in hard or soft cover, eBook and audio book. You can click the link below to go right to the store! Thanks, Dan
