Book Description

Told through the eyes of current and former Navy SEALs, EYES ON TARGET is an inside account of some of the most harrowing missions in American history-including the mission to kill Osama bin Laden and the mission that wasn't, the deadly attack on the US diplomatic outpost in Benghazi where a retired SEAL sniper with a small team held off one hundred terrorists while his repeated radio calls for help went unheeded.

The book contains incredible accounts of major SEAL operations-from the violent birth of SEAL Team Six and the aborted Operation Eagle Claw meant to save the hostages in Iran, to key missions in Iraq and Afganistan where the SEALs suffered their worst losses in their fifty year history-and every chapter illustrates why this elite military special operations unit remains the most feared anti-terrorist force in the world.

We hear reports on the record from retired SEAL officers including Lt. Cmdr. Richard Marcinko, the founder of SEAL Team Six, and a former Commander at SEAL team Six, Ryan Zinke, and we come away understanding the deep commitment of these military men who put themselves in danger to protect our country and save American lives. In the face of insurmountable odds and the imminent threat of death, they give all to protect those who cannot protect themselves.

No matter the situation, on duty or at ease, SEALs never, ever give up. One powerful chapter in the book tells the story of how one Medal of Honor winner saved another, the only time this has been done in US military history.

EYES ON TARGET includes these special features:
  • A detailed timeline of events during the Benghazi attack
  • Sample rescue scenarios from a military expert who believes that help could have reached the Benghazi compound in time
  • The US House Republican Conference Interim Progress Report on the events surrounding the September 11, 2012 Terrorist Attacks in Benghazi
Through their many interviews and unique access, Scott McEwen and Richard Miniter pull back the veil that has so often concealed the heroism of these patriots. They live by a stringent and demanding code of their own creation, keeping them ready to ignore politics, bureaucracy and-if necessary-direct orders. They share a unique combination of character, intelligence, courage, love of country and what can only be called true grit.

They are the Navy SEALs, and they keep their Eyes on Target.

1.0 out of 5 stars pseudo heroes 1 Mar. 2015
Format:Hardcover
This a very poorly written book that is basically in 2 parts a)accounts of some SEAL actions and b) the attack on the American embassy in Benghazi when the ambassador was killed.
The usual arrogant American claims that the SEALS are the worlds ultimate fighting force (what a joke) and the usual anti British jibes make the book meaningless.
If you want a decent book on frogmen get SBS (isbn 0747219761)and you will read how things should be done.
A book definitely not recommended -not worth a penny

1.0 out of 5 stars PAINFULLY BORING 4 Dec. 2014
By D Blake
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
One of the worste military books I've read. Painfully boring and fully of nonsense to add up the word count. Don't bother unless you see it in a charity shop for 20p. (Still think twice).

4.0 out of 5 stars Just wait! Soon to be a major movie I'll bet 30 April 2014
By Tyreman
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Had just purchased "A snipers conflict" which arrived a few days before this one. Made the mistake of opening this one and I couldn't put it down for long. The other book was left for dust to gather till I had this one read and finished.
Its not that its a ultimate pageturner but the Bengazi section is well written and very interesting.
Why did it not get 6 stars well........
Book too short, too much references to others,too much unimportant info included.
BUT.....its still goin to be a movie in some shape or form.....watch out!
