I'm sure some of you like myself have seen the previews of the new movie The Lone Survivor, the story of seal team ten told by Marcus Lutrell. Marcus tells the story of how he and three of his teammates go into a recon mission in the afghan mountains when he and his team where confronted with what is estimated to be around one hundred and forty Taliban. After seeing the previews for the movie I knew I had to get the book and read it first and all I can say is wow! The acts of selflessness, heroism, and bravery in by these men will give you cold chills and bring tears to your eyes. I urge you that if you are American, can read, and have a pulse to read this book.

i've got the book and have read it about 5 times. Those guys were all true heroes. Hard to imagine what they went through.

Not aware of his new book, but Lone Survivor is an awesome read.

I've read that one in addition to Lone Survivor. Service focuses more on the rescue mission and other heroic acts than the operation itself. I'd recommend it, too.

"Seal of Honor" is another great book. Its Lt. Michael Murphy's story. Also "American Sniper" by Chris Kyle is also a inspiring story.
