I found the Mark Wahlberg 'Lone Survivor' movie to be very upsetting, so I was nervous about reading this. However, it's an exceptional book, right up there with Andy McNab's 'Bravo Two Zero'. It gives an account of the combat experience of Marcus Luttrell, a US Navy SEAL. It details his SEAL training, which was really interesting. It then goes on to explain the events surrounding 'Operation Redwing', a combat mission in Afghanistan that ended up putting a 4 man SEAL team into close quarters battle with somewhere between 150-200 Taliban fighters, in the midst of the precarious Hindu Kush mountain range. It is a story of endurance, survival and extraordinary valour under fire.
