Lone Survivor http://www.amazon.com/Lone-Survivor-Eyewitness-Account-Operation/dp/0316067598 You tube of the author: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwdSeegNldc OK, I first heard about this story from a US army friend and thought it sounded a little far fetched, that was a couple of years ago or so, on ARRSE I came across a YouTube NRA video of Markus Luttrell ranting on about Texas but was interested enough to get the book. The story, in essence, is a small SEAL team gets compromised and tries to run away, out numbered something like 100:1 comms are down, the rescue party get their helo shot down (16 deaths) and the author is left on his own. It is worth reading. Howeverâ¦ You will have to put up with America is the best, Texas is the best, SEALS are the best, my buddies are the best. Democrats are scum, CNN is scum, Al Jazerra is scum, Afghans are scum, Texas is the best etc and perhaps the most stupid thing I have ever heard from a military person âRules Of Engagement killed my buddies..â. Presumably not the command decision to send 4 men into observe 400 or when bumped to only move 1.5km down the track to another hide thenâ¦ For those readers who enjoy the SF books reading this will be an eye opener for the quality of the SEALs. For those who enjoy reading about Afghanistan, itâs a very interesting book in its own way.
