Description

The #1 New York Times bestselling first-person account of the planning and execution of the Bin Laden raid from a Navy SEAL who confronted the terrorist mastermind and witnessed his final moments.

From the streets of Iraq to the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips in the Indian Ocean, and from the mountaintops of Afghanistan to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden’s compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group—known as SEAL Team Six—has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines.

No Easy Day puts readers alongside Owen and his fellow SEAL team members as they train for the biggest mission of their lives. The blow-by-blow narrative of the assault, beginning with the helicopter crash that could have ended Owen’s life straight through to the radio call confirming Bin Laden’s death, is an essential piece of modern history.

In No Easy Day, Owen also takes readers into the War on Terror and details the formation of the most elite units in the military. Owen’s story draws on his youth in Alaska and describes the SEALs’ quest to challenge themselves at the highest levels of physical and mental endurance. With boots-on-the-ground detail, Owen describes several missions that illustrate the life and work of a SEAL and the evolution of the team after the events of September 11.

In telling the true story of the SEALs whose talents, skills, experiences, and exceptional sacrifices led to one of the greatest victories in the War on Terror, Mark Owen honors the men who risk everything for our country, and he leaves readers with a deep understanding of the warriors who keep America safe.

    From Hatzic Hillbilly
    This book was co-written by one of the Seal Team Six members. The fascinating details of the lead up and ultimate success of the hunt for the World's Most Wanted Man is what initially draws the Reader in. However, it is the down to earth and honest way the author communicates to the reader that makes the book a must read. I highly recommend spending your hard earned pay reading about how these dedicated Brave Men make theirs.
  • Great book!

    Captivating account without the partisan fluff. I always had the sense that Owen was telling a first hand account. It was not glamour, but reality and the ugliness and necessity of war. If we could all approach whatever we decide to pursue in life with the intensity and focus of all of those individuals then we would surely be true to ourselves.
