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… (mais)

Relato en primera persona de la operación que condujo a la muerte de Osama bin Laden.

Here are ten suspenseful, serpentine stories of betrayal, blackmail, murder, and revenge...all culminating in shocking twists of fate.

An account, from one of the SEALS involved in the raid and killing of Bin Laden. The book first gives an account of what you go through to become a Navy SEAL and then delves into the actual planning and assault on Bin Laden's compound. So if you are not looking to learn about the SEAL training, this is not the book to read. It was a quick easy read for me. ( )

A 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 moment.

This book was bought for me as a gift last Christmas and had sat on the shelf sadly neglected until now. I have to admit that I was afraid of two things with this book. The first is that it may have been a poorly written and rush attempt at cashing in on the death of Bin Laden. The second fear I had, and I apologise in advance if this offends anyone, was that is may contain loads of frat boy esq, chest thumping, uber patriotic nonsense. I don't like that kind of thing at the best of times and especially not where any form of combat is involved.

I am very happy to report that these fears did not apply to this book. There is no chest thumping, just the confidence that comes with knowing that you are extremely good at what you do. It is also very well written and I got sucked into the action every time I picked it up. There isn't a huge amount of autobiographical information in the book which is probably for a combination of security requirements and sticking to the main story. Owen covers some of the training which is involved at making it as a Navy Seal and then covers a few earlier missions that he and his men carried out. Interestingly enough this included the rescue of captain Richard Phillips which has recently been made into a movie staring Tom Hanks.

The failures and successes of the Bin Laden operation are covered equally and Owen is keen to make sure the reader knows that he is one part of a larger machine. In particular he praises the helicopter pilot who managed to crash his helicopter in such a way that no one was hurt. The mission could have been over before it had started but despite this accident the men on the ground improvised and overcome.

At the end of the book Owen also shows a keen appreciation of the politics behind the operation and the effect that success or failure would have had in the political arena. This is a really nice addition that a lot of military memoirs leave untouched unless they have an axe to grind.

This is a very enjoyable book. ( )

At one minute out, the Black Hawk crew chief slid the door open.  I could just make him out - his night vision goggles covering his eyes - holding up one finger.  I glanced around and saw my SEAL teammates calmly passing the sign through the helicopter.
