Very broad brush strokes. Not a lot of detail. Some of his stories could have been books to themselves. Quick easy read. ( )

War memoir with half the book dedicated to the raid on Bin Laden. Good read. ( )

Quick, fun read. Don't expect incredible prose or deep philosophy. But it's a fascinating and sometimes exciting look at a part of the world most of us are sheltered from. ( )

There really is no easy day when you are tasked to protect our wonderful country! ( )

Experience the mission to eliminate Osama Bin Laden first hand as Mark Owen, operator of the Navy's notorious SEAL Team 6. Just like in Nazi Hunters, readers will be along for the thrilling ride as brave men prepare and carry out a high-stakes mission. I paired this book with Nazi Hunters because as students leave the YA arena, there are adult books waiting to hook them into lifelong reading.

Long live the Brotherhood.
First words
At one minute out, the Black Hawk crew chief slid the door open.  I could just make him out - his night vision goggles covering his eyes - holding up one finger.  I glanced around and saw my SEAL teammates calmly passing the sign through the helicopter.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0525953728, Hardcover)

For the first time anywhere, the first-person account of the planning and execution of the Bin Laden raid from a Navy Seal who confronted the terrorist mastermind and witnessed his final moments.

From the streets of Iraq to the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips in the Indian Ocean, and from the mountaintops of Afghanistan to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden’s compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group--commonly known as SEAL Team Six-- has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines.

No Easy Day puts readers alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the twenty-four-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives. The blow-by-blow narrative of the assault, beginning with the helicopter crash that could have ended Owen’s life straight through to the radio call confirming Bin Laden’s death, is an essential piece of modern history.

In No Easy Day, Owen also takes readers onto the field of battle in America’s ongoing War on Terror and details the selection and training process for one of the most elite units in the military. Owen’s story draws on his youth in Alaska and describes the SEALs’ quest to challenge themselves at the highest levels of physical and mental endurance. With boots-on-the-ground detail, Owen describes numerous previously unreported missions that illustrate the life and work of a SEAL and the evolution of the team after the events of September 11. In telling the true story of the SEALs whose talents, skills, experiences, and exceptional sacrifices led to one of the greatest victories in the War on Terror, Mark Owen honors the men who risk everything for our country, and he leaves readers with a deep understanding of the warriors who keep America safe.
