5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Awesome, February 14, 2009
This review is from: Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10 (Paperback)
If you're always wondering what its really like to be a seal, this is the book. I've always wondered what the limits of a tactical operative really are....and it appears that the truth is way more impressive than fiction.

It has Robinson's narrative style. This is a little terse for some, but if you liked HMS Unseen, you'll love this. It's pretty gut wrenching from almost beginning to end, and nearly non-stop action.

If the Afghani's are anything like the Arabs, then I'd say he's pegged them pretty close. The rite of hospitality is pretty sacred...when you're their friend, then you're their friend...but when you're their enemy....heaven help you. I think he gave a fair representation of the struggle between the forces of the good, the evil and the misled within the same culture.

Obviously all the liberal media types will not enjoy this book, but then again nobody likes a mirror held to their own misdeeds.
