Auf einmal stand da eine Armee . . . SEAL-Team 10: eine Elitetruppe. Die Mission: einen Al-Qaida-Führer zur Strecke bringen. Der Feind: Dutzende zu allem entschlossene Taliban-Kämpfer. Vier SEALs gegen eine ganze Armee. Und dann bricht die Hölle los. Die Army schickt Helikopter zur Verstärkung. Neunzehn Männer kommen um, ein einziger kehrt zurück. Dies ist sein Bericht. In einer sternenklaren Nacht im späten Juni 2005 verlassen vier US Navy SEALs ihre Basis im nördlichen Afghanistan in Richtung pakistanische Grenze. Ihr Auftrag: Gefangennahme oder Tötung eines hochrangigen Al-Qaida-Führers, der mit Osama bin Laden operieren und sich in den Bergen versteckt halten soll . . . Lone Survivor ist die Geschichte von Marcus Luttrell, des einzigen Überlebenden der Operation Red Wings. Nicht nur seine drei Kameraden sterben im Gefecht mit einer unterschätzten gegnerischen Truppe, auch die komplette Besatzung des Special-Operations-Aviation-Regiments, das zur Rettung per Hubschrauber losgeschickt wurde, findet den Tod. Nur dank der Hilfe von Einheimischen, die ihn aufnehmen, pflegen und vor den Taliban beschützen, überlebt der schwer verletzte Luttrell. Seine Geschichte handelt von Angst, Tod und grenzenlosem Leid, aber auch von Mut und Treue, von Freundschaft und Hoffnung – und von dem unbedingten Willen zu überleben

In June 2005 four US Navy SEALs left their base in Afghanistan for the 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 than twenty-four hours later, only one of those Navy SEALs was alive. This is the story of team leader Marcus Luttrell, the sole survivor of Operation Redwing. Blasted unconscious by a rocket grenade, blown over a cliff, but still armed and still breathing, Luttrell endured four desperate days fighting the al-Qaeda assassins sent to kill him, before finding unlikely sanctuary with a Pashtun tribe who risked everything to protect him from the circling Taliban killers.

Marcus Luttrell's blockbuster bestseller, Lone Survivor—soon to be a major motion picture—tells the story of Operation Red Wings, in which four U.S. Navy SEALs were inserted into the mountains of eastern Afghanistan with the task of collecting intelligence and finding—or killing—a top al Qaeda commander. The SEALs were ambushed by over one hundred Taliban fighters and a horrific battle ensued. The rescue helicopter carrying eight SEALs was shot down by a reported Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG), killing them instantly and erasing any hope for the SEALs already on the ground. Luttrell was the only survivor. OPERATION RED WINGS is an in-depth examination of the recovery mission to rescue Luttrell, filled with never-before-told details and shocking new revelations. Author Peter Nealen (former USMC Force Recon) and the team at SOFREP have an expansive network within the Special Operations community, providing them with access to exclusive interviews, after action reports, military intel and previously untold accounts of the rescue mission. Nealen and his team have uncovered eyewitness reports that put the "official" story into question as to how the initial rescue helicopter was shot down. If true, this potential coverup will have had severe consequences on subsequent helicopter insertion operations and put lives at risk. Complete with a foreword by former Navy SEAL Brandon Webb, this is a must-have companion to the blockbuster book and upcoming film. (12,000 words)

In 1873, Alferd Packer led twenty-one men from Utah to the gold fields of Colorado. Three months later, he returned alone. To this day, no one but Packer knows what really happened on that fateful expedition. Lone Survivor brilliantly recreates -- from Packer's unique point of view -- a tale of unforgiving terrain, of savage winter storms and dwindling food supplies, and of a desperate journey into the wilderness, where brave men died.

Rusty McBride is carrying the richest shipment of his life--silver traded to him by the Shawnee. He's on the trail to Fort Pitt to trade his treasure when he picks up the attention of a gritty rustler in a settlement along the way. Rusty can tell that this man knows he's hauling some valuable freight and is willing to do anything to get his hands on it, even if that means killing him. Rusty, using his wits and some trickery, slips out of town undetected. But now he knows he's being chased down a trail with no law in sight, except that administered by his own rifle. With all this action, Rusty hadn't counted on a hostile Indian war party terrorizing travelers up and down the Ohio River. He also hadn't counted on finding a survivor of this rampage in desperate need of his protection. With all these scavengers and murderers close on his tail, Rusty wonders whether he will reach Fort Pitt with his cache or even his life.

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.
