Description

If you loved American Sniper this is the book for you. No Easy Day by Mark Owen with Kevin Maurer is the first-person account of Bin Laden's execution.
For the first time anywhere, a first-person account of the planning and execution of the Bin Laden raid from inside the US Navy SEAL team who carried out the extraordinary mission to kill the terrorist mastermind.
No Easy Day puts readers inside the elite, handpicked twenty-four-man team known as SEAL Team Six as they train for the most important mission of their lives: the SEALs were going after bin Laden.
From the crash of the Black Hawk helicopter that threatened the mission with disaster to the radio call confirming their target was dead, the SEAL team raid on bin Laden's secret HQ is recounted in nail-biting second-by-second detail.
In No Easy Day, team leader Mark Owen takes readers behind enemy lines with one of the world's most astonishing fighting forces, in the only insider's account of their most spectacular mission.
Praise for No Easy Day:
'No Easy Day amounts to a cinematic account of the raid to kill Bin Laden: you feel as if you're sitting in the Black Hawk as it swoops in.' NY Times
'A blistering first-hand account' The Sun
Mark Owen is a former member of the US Naval Special Warfare Development Group, commonly known as SEAL Team Six. In his many years as a Navy SEAL, he has participated in hundreds of missions around the globe, including the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips in the Indian Ocean in 2009. Owen was a team leader on Operation Neptune Spear in Abbottabad, Pakistan, on 1 May 2011, which resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden. Owen was one of the first men through the door on the third floor of the terrorist mastermind's hideout, where he witnessed bin Laden's death. Mark Owen's name and the names of the other SEALs mentioned in this book have been changed for their security.
Kevin Maurer has covered special-operations forces for nine years. He has been embedded with the Special Forces in Afghanistan six times, spent a month in 2006 with special-operations units in east Africa, and has embedded with US forces in Iraq and Haiti. He is the author of four books, including several about special operations.

  • Controversial but exceptionally gripping.

    Controversy surrounding the publication of Matt Bissonette's (aka Mark Owen) centre around the release of sensitive information about Special Forces operations during the Iran-Afganistan conflicts since 2001. Claiming to represent the daily life of special operatives this recount does feel genuine to how actions, orders and experiences resonate throughout their sphere of affairs. I selected this book a while ago but never got around to reading it until watching Discovery channels documentary on the Neptune Spear operation. Inspired by the events which it described I leapt head first into the book and only surfaced to seek refreshments. Gripping, detailed, tense - this recount of events has it all with such engaging depictions that you find yourself transported onto the C-130 and sprinting side-by-side with the ops teams. A significant piece of global history told through the eyes of one person - first hand and thoroughly entertaining.
