This book, Lone Survivor: The eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10 has of course been recently released as a movie, which sparked my interest to pick it up and see how the two would compare. I have not yet seen the movie, but if you are interested in a gripping, honest, and sometimes heartbreakingly real account of what transpired, this is a definite read. Marcus’ storytelling is very well done, and you get an insider’s view of some of what it takes to become a U.S. Navy SEAL, as well as his recounting of the events that left him the last surviving member of his team. The loss of his team was a devastating blow, to their families, himself, their fellow war fighters and our nation, but he honors by keeping their story alive in these pages.
