Thank you Gary Williams for telling the tale that needs to be told in a way that leaves no ambiguity about service and devotion.
The book's title says "Operation Red Wings and the Life of Lt. Michael P. Murphy", but there is very little covering Operation Red Wings. I appreciate reading about the awards and honors given to Michael after his death, but again, way more than I needed to know. I'm sure Michael's family and friends appreciated all the information put into the book and I credit the author for all the work it seems like he put in to writing this. But as a reader who wanted to read about Michael's experiences in the Navy and Operation Red Wings, I was a bit disappointed.
I would be interested in reading more accounts of Michael's life, but I would not read another book by this author.
This author talks alot about military protocal, speaches that individual made, military codes etc. I am past the point of this brave individuals death and but yet have only read a brief description as to how he died.
Nothing about the operation, how the fire fight went down and what exemplanary act was committed by LT. Michael Murphy to award him the medal of honor.
I am not down playing his death or the fact that he should not have received the medal,
I just want to read about it in the book .
The respect and admiration I have for these individuals is indescribable. They are truly the ultimate warriors.
I am very dissapointed with this particular author and how he wrote this book.
It does not do justice for the brave men and women that lost their lives and continue to loose their lives in this war.
I just wished the author had done a better job at researching the accounts and the cause of Lt. Murphy death.
Thank you and bless you and stay safe.
