Wonderful true vivid easy to read stories that keep you hooked. Absolutely a great book to read about our true military hero’s and the things they go through and sacrifice to give our nation freedom.

A MUST READ
By Vega Jim
I was looking at some videos about the author Brad Taylor and discovered a video interview on SOFREP radio with Robert O’Neill. I got the book from the library and loved this book. O’Neill is a true American hero and excellent story teller. I trained in Little Creek, VA in the Navy for a position as a Chaplain’s Assistant headed to Chu Lai, Vietnam. The buds/s were next to our unit and I saw them swimming and carrying their boats to the chow hall. what stamina they had. Get this book.

5 stars to a true American Patriot and Hero
Rob tells his amazing journey from growing up in Butte, MT to BUD/S and his many missions as a Navy Seal. There are some hilarious moments as well as tragedy and triumph. You cannot put this book down, and I truly believe it is a must read for every American. Put this on high school reading lists!

Riveting,written from a more personal journey than most of the books on Seals that I have read. My Son in law was a commander at Devgroup doing intell for team 6 so this book was special to me. Great book, thanks Rob.
One of the best!
Robert O’Neill has written one of the best books I have ever had the pleasure of reading. I can’t wait to see what else he will write. I am now a fan and have found this book to be informative, entertaining and inspiring. Mr. O’Neill, you have no idea how much you have made me laugh and feel such much pride to be an American. You are truly an American hero, you’re parents raised a great son. You have a very beautiful life, full of adventure, sometimes heart wrenching, but nevertheless a courageous one and full of positives outcomes. Thank you for your service, Sir. I am so glad to know that you and so many others in your company were in our side. I hope to read many great books. You are a great writer. And I hope to someday meet you, hopefully in one of your book signings. AND THANK YOU AND YOUR NAVY SEAL BROTHERS, SO MUCH FOR GETTING RID OF THAT SOB.
Such an amazing story. So serious, with a great mix of humor with harrowing bravery. Couldn’t recommend it more highly.
I don't read a lot of books. I finished this one in a short period of time. I am interested in American History and this book fit the bill especially a part of history I personally lived through from the morning of 9/11. I relived the moments and the feelings again.
