For the first time, read a first-person account of the Bin Laden raid, told by a Navy SEAL who witnessed the terrorist mastermind's final moments. No Easy Day
puts the reader alongside the handpicked 24-man team as they train for and plan the biggest mission of their lives, then delivers a blow-by-blow narrative of the assault, beginning with the helicopter crash that could have ended the author’s life, straight through to the radio call confirming Bin Laden’s death.
From the streets of Iraq to the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips in the Indian Ocean, and from the mountaintops of Afghanistan to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden’s compound, Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group—commonly known as SEAL Team Six—has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines.
With boots-on-the-ground detail, Owen describes several of these previously unreported missions, depicting the life and work of a SEAL and the evolution of the team after the events of September 11, 2001. In telling their true stories, Owen leaves readers with a deep understanding of the warriors who keep America safe.
