5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent History of the Seals!, April 10, 2014
This is an excellent history of the Navy Seals. This story begins with the disasterous attempt to rescue the hostages in Iran. This effort was code named
Operation Eagle Claw. It was a total failure resulting in casualties.Another famous personality in the Seal ranks Richard Marcinko is also featured in this novel.He was one of the founding fathers in the formation of the Navy Seals. Another personality in the Seals was named Drago. He was the first Navy Seal
to be from a foreign country. He also proved to be a ferocious warrior. One of the most famous Seal operations was Operation Redwing. A Seal team of four Seals was sent into Afghanistan to assassinate a tribal chieftain who was also a Taliban terrorist leader. Three of the four Seals were killed in action
with Marcus Luttrell being the sole survivor.This story became a best selling book as well as a movie. Another operation in Seal history was in Fallujah.
Seals were accused of assaulting a terrorist leader. They were put on trial and found not guilty.In Benghazi the American embassy was attacked by elements in
Libya. One retired sniper held off the forces of evil. These Americans could get no help from the United States.All calls were ignored.
This is a very good book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Movie!, March 23, 2014
This review is from: The Monuments Men (DVD)
This film is set circa 1943, during World War II. It describes the formation of an army unit that was created specifically to search for and recover priceless art stolen from the Jewish people by the German soldiers.
A six man team called the Monuments Men is formed to undertake this mission. The team is led by Frank Stokes into France to begin their search. While in France the unit meets Claire Simone who is a French museum curator. She is being forced against her will to cooperate with Nazi officers like Viktor Stahl to steal priceless works of art.
At this point in the war the Nazis are being pushed back and on their way out are looting and destroying as much as possible. The Monuments Men are able to uncover the locations of some of some of the art work on their own. They turn to Claire Simone for her assistance which she is initially reluctant to give. With her guidance the Monuments Men are able to uncover a huge cache of stolen art work in a castle and then find a map leading the group to a mine that contained thousands upon thousands of art pieces and more macabre items such as golden teeth pulled from the mouths of Nazi concentration camp victims.
Another problem is encountered by the Monument's Men when it is discovered they must compete with the Soviet Army as well in their searches. The Soviet Army assumes that they are entitled to the priceless art work as some sort of war reparations because of their massive number of casualties. In one of the final missions in the film a mine is found in Austria containing great numbers of the stolen pieces of art. The Monuments Men are able to sneak these pieces out right under the noses of the Soviet Army,including the priceless Madonna and Child sculpture by Michelangelo which held significant importance to the group because they lost one of their own in a failed attempt to prevent it from being stolen.
The monuments Men made great headway in recovering the artwork. Some lives were lost in their mission,but according to the unit it was well worth it to have made such great strides in their mission This movie is a great depection of events that took place during Worl War II.
