For the first time anywhere, the 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--commonly 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 the other handpicked members of the twenty-four-man team 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 onto the field of battle in America’s ongoing War on Terror and details the selection and training process for one 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 numerous previously unreported 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.

2.5 No Easy Day - Review
Workmanlike account of the famous mission, with a great deal of background of this specific operator. Seems as though they couldn't decide if this was about Neptune Spear or the life story of the narrator, "Mark Owen". I will say that the mission itself was presented very well, with diagrams, and wa...

3.5 stars. I've read so many fictional stories about SEALs, I figured it was time to read a non-fiction account. Also, I'm fascinated with all the events that both led up to and occurred as a result of 9/11, and just understanding the situation in the Middle East in general. There have been some rea...

Let me start of by saying, if you are looking for some literary genius, this is not the book to pick up. But if you are looking for something intimate, something historically important in modern living, something closely juxtaposed about living the life of a military, in constant deployments across ...

Pretty much every American probably knows of this book. I don't need to go into the background about the controversies that surrounded its publication. You can easily look it up on the internet. But it's significant that there is plenty of controversy regarding this book and I'll address them in thi...
