Lone Survivor : The Incredible True Story of Navy SEALs Under Siege Paperback

4.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


In June 2005 four US Navy SEALs left their base in Afghanistan for the 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 than twenty-four hours later, only one of those Navy SEALs was alive. This is the story of team leader Marcus Luttrell, the sole survivor of Operation Redwing.

Blasted unconscious by a rocket grenade, blown over a cliff, but still armed and still breathing, Luttrell endured four desperate days fighting the al-Qaeda assassins sent to kill him, before finding unlikely sanctuary with a Pashtun tribe who risked everything to protect him from the circling Taliban killers.

Review by

A very good, very personal, & therefore slightly jaundiced account of Operation Redwing. No one can doubt this mans heroism & amazing capabilities under fire & afterwards. A very good account of the modern battlefield, & special forces.
