5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Unimaginable, June 12, 2007
This review is from: Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10 (Hardcover)
This book takes you inside the Navy SEALs training program in Coronado. You are with Marcus Luttrell throughout BUD/S and Hell Week. You fly with him and his teammates in a C-130 to the Hindu Kush, where the hunt begins for bin Laden's right-hand man. But then it all goes terribly wrong, up there in the mountains of Afghanistan.

This book, written by Patrick Robinson, reads like a fast-paced thriller, told in Marcus's understated voice. It is a rivetting, important, sad story of lost friends, valor, courage and the intricacies of modern war. It is an important book, destined to become an American classic.

They actually flew from Qatar to Bagram Air Base in a C-130. Bagram is considered to be in the Hindu Kush. For the SEAL team mission they inserted via a US Army MH-47 Helicopter

Are you serious? Apparently you know nothing about special forces.
