A Navy SEAL's firsthand account of American heroism during a secret military operation in Afghanistan.


Inspiration for a major motion picture by Mark Wahlberg.


On a clear night in late June 2005, four U.S. Navy SEALs left their base in northern Afghanistan for the mountainous Pakistani border. Their mission was to capture or kill a notorious al Qaeda leader known to be ensconced in a Taliban stronghold surrounded by a small but heavily armed force. Less then twenty-four hours later, only one of those Navy SEALs remained alive.
This is the story of fire team leader Marcus Luttrell, the sole survivor of Operation Redwing, and the desperate battle in the mountains that led, ultimately, to the largest loss of life in Navy SEAL history. But it is also, more than anything, the story of his teammates, who fought ferociously beside him until he was the last one left-blasted unconscious by a rocket grenade, blown over a cliff, but still armed and still breathing. Over the next four days, badly injured and presumed dead, Luttrell fought off six al Qaeda assassins who were sent to finish him, then crawled for seven miles through the mountains before he was taken in by a Pashtun tribe, who risked everything to protect him from the encircling Taliban killers.
A six-foot-five-inch Texan, Leading Petty Officer Luttrell takes us, blow-by-blow, through the brutal training of America's warrior elite and the relentless rites of passage required by the Navy SEALs. He transports us to a monstrous battle fought in the desolate peaks of Afghanistan, where the beleaguered American team plummeted headlong a thousand feet down a mountain as they fought back through flying shale and rocks. In this rich , moving chronicle of courage, honor, and patriotism, Marcus Luttrell delivers one of the most powerful narratives ever written about modern warfare-and a tribute to his teammates, who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

An amazing story about some great men - both American and Afghan. This book had many of the tragedy, success, and heroic-effort elements of Blackhawk Down.

It also offered terrific insight into the physical and mental makeup of these heroes. Be glad these guys are on our side.

But it significantly lacked the quality of writing that was in Blackhawk Down and The Great Game. ( )

Amazing story! Why is this not a movie. This man is a true American hero! It is so sad what happened to the other Seals and the rescue team. Every Congressman and media member should read this to learn how their meddling into military tactics puts our troops into deadly situations they cannot always protect themselves in. ( )

The choices to be made tear your heart.
The courage of these men inspires. ( )

Here's what I wrote in 2011 about this read: "That was a wow and a source of night dreams for at least two night now. Recommended by DLA and finally read. Hugely insightful into the SEALS and overall military experience / mindset. The horror that warrior Luttrell experienced in Operation Redwing was his defining life event; he'll probably never sleep full a night ever again." ( )

Wow, what a read. Marcus gives an in depth look at his journey to become a Navy SEAL & through BUD/S and his account of what happened to he & his 3 teammates (Murph, Axe, & Danny) during Operation Redwing in 2005. A gripping, detailed, and sad story about a war that is raging on still. Dropped off in Taliban territory to capture or kill an al queda leader was the team's mission. A harrowing journey into unknown territory and a battle that killed Marcus's three teammates & later a rescue/extract helicopter full of other teammates. Last man standing, Marcus was found by Pashtun leader & taken to their village & protected. This book was up close & personal and full of honor for his fallen hero comrades and a tale of hope and perseverance. If you've seen the movie, you need to read the book. ( )

Just because Luttrell got his facts wrong, criticized the rules of engagement needlessly, and misunderstands counter-insurgency, that doesn’t mean his memoir is bad art. Misguided definitely, but not necessarily a poor piece of writing.

Except Lone Survivor is a bad piece of writing, and I hope it will be forgotten in twenty years.
