Proud to be an American
If this book doesn’t make you proud to be an American nothing will. Thank you for your service Marcus!
Fiction, sold as fact, without the quality of a Lee Child novel
I enjoyed the story but many parts did not ring true. A bit of digging has me convinced that the narrative is false in most ways that matter. The account of Gulab, the man who saved Luttrell, is far more credible (Newsweek published an article in June of 2016 summarizing interviews with witnesses, including Gulab). For readers of fiction, Lee Child’s Jack Reacher novels are far better. History buffs should definitely look elsewhere for facts.
This is the third book I've read about The Seals, all have been beyond enjoyable to read. I'm amazed at what these true patriots go through to serve and protect our country. I was more than overjoyed that Marcus wrote several times, in length, about the ROE and how hindering they are to those out in the battlefield. I think 'war rules' should be left up to the military and those out there doing the fighting. Not the politicians sitting in their cushy offices in DC. I read this book in less than one week, it's THAT good!
Best read ever
Thank you Marcus and God bless our brave Seals!!!
Had me laughing one moment and in tears the next
A true hero and true Texan. This book sent me through a whirlwind of emotions I was a proud Texan reading Marcus Luttrell's perspective which was relatable to the point it had me laughing, in a panic and also crying but ultimately I couldn't put the book down. My heart really goes out to all the men and women who fight for our country by putting their lives on the line with courage and dignity. God bless America and God bless Texas!
Best book I've ever read
Truly a great story.

This book kept me ever increasingly glued to the pages. A nonfictional roll out of wounded, stalked prey's survival against merciless odds. You will not be able to put it down. CPT James Huff USAR
What can be said?
When heroes need heroes, they can find them in books such as these. America is great because of patriots such as these live... And sometimes sacrifice it all.
Toughen up America... There is real evil out there. Thank GOD we have brave people such as these to stand in the gap.
Page-turner. Uncommon valor. I will vote Republican in the 2016 presidential campaign bc this book clearly makes a case for the need to alter the "rules of engagement". Personally, I think Trump is a moron but if Marcus Luttrell supports him... then that's good enough for me.
The Lone Survivor
Excellent book, makes me proud to be an American! God bless all of our soldiers and veterans! Some gave all, and all gave some!
Read the book then watch the movie!
