Lone Survivor, is the most exhilarating books I have ever read. It shows that brothers don't need to be in blood. It shows how compassion and a purpose helps you push through. This is Operation Red Wing. Operation Red Wing was led by Navy SEAL's and the leader of the group Marcus Lutrell. They were sent to kill a Taliban terrorist that had lots and lots of power. On their way to the journey they are ambushed by 150 Taliban soldiers, they are outnumbered 150 to 5. His "brothers" fought valiantly and courageously beside him, but did not make it. Marcus was the last alive. A RPG blast blew down the face of a mountain leaving him terribly injured and presumed dead. This is my favortie part and the most exhilarating part to me. This is only when the adventure starts. And to add on top of this its all a TRUE story. Read, Lone Surviovr, by Marcus Lutrell.
