This is a Seal's story of how he became a Seal and his participation in the raid that led to the death of Osma Bin Laden.
The author's name is a pseudonym due the continuing threat of terrorism. The names of his fellow Seals and details of the raid have been scrubbed to protect operational procedures and the safety of the participants. The human interest factor of what motivates a young man to dedicate his life to the hazardous one of a Navy Seal, let alone providing him with the stamina and strength to become a Seal, was extremely interesting.
A drive to succeed and a level of stubbornness that must be phenomenal has to be part of the basic character of the Seals. The training process is either just shy of brutal or perhaps more realistically, calculated to be brutal.
There does seem to be an addiction to thrills and or adventure. The author shows a decided preference for field work over any time off. The mission details were purposely vague to maintain the safety of the participants while still being detailed enough to answer a lot of questions.
This was a thought provoking look into the mind of one of the
most elite warriors.
To the books author, thank you for your service and your courage.
