To become a Navy Seal, you must first go through what is widely considered to be the most physically and mentally demanding military training in existence. Only about 1% of those who enter, complete the training. Adam Brown, the man this book is about, was ranked near the top 1% of this elite cadre of men. This is the story of how an all-American boy lost his way, yet found it again, with the help of his faith, his family, and the love of a woman, to become a highly trained warrior whose courage and determination were legendary.
Author Eric Blehm has given us an up close and personal glimpse into the heart of a warrior. There is a spate of books and movies out now about these military heroes who sacrifice so much to protect us here in this country, and sometimes wind up paying the ultimate price. I also think it is very important that we understand and appreciate such sacrifice, and books like this one will go a long way towards helping us understand what special caliber of men these are and how much we all owe them.
A vivid and absorbing account that leads to a final act of bravery, and the ultimate sacrifice.
In the interest of full disclosure, I did receive a copy of this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
