Primo maggio 2011: il Re del Terrore è morto. Osama bin Laden, l'uomo che per un decennio ha tenuto l'Occidente nella morsa della paura, è stato ucciso. Per la prima volta la più importante ed eclatante operazione di intelligence degli ultimi anni viene raccontata attraverso le clamorose rivelazioni di uno dei diretti protagonisti, un ex appartenente al Team Six dei SEAL (le forze speciali della Marina statunitense) che per primo ha fatto irruzione nell'ultimo rifugio di Bin Laden. Sotto lo pseudonimo di Mark Owen, l'autore ripercorre la sua esperienza nei corpi speciali, a comiciare dall'agognato ingresso nei SEAL, passando per il salvataggio del capitano Richard Phillips, rapito dai pirati somali nell'Oceano Indiano, fino alla guerra ai talebani sulle montagne afghane e all'assalto del compound di Abbottabad, in Pakistan, dove si nascondeva il leader di al Qaeda. Per due settimane gli uomini della squadra vengono addestrati ad affrontare il compito più importante della loro vita: la caccia a Bin Laden, nell'operazione denominata Lancia di Nettuno. Per Owen e i suoi compagni il successo della missione, oltre che dovuto alla partecipazione a centinaia di operazioni in tutto il globo, è frutto di anni di addestramento durissimo, teso a portare ai limiti massimi la resistenza psicofisica, una preparazione che consente loro di affrontare qualsiasi genere di evento e di imprevisto, qualsiasi tipologia di nemico. Il raid nel quartier generale segreto di Bin Laden è raccontato nei minimi dettagli con un ritmo da togliere il fiato, dall'incidente con l'elicottero che avrebbe potuto compromettere la missione e costare la vita a Owen fino alla comunicazione radio che conferma la morte del loro obiettivo. In No Easy Day, Mark Owen conduce i lettori dietro le linee nemiche insieme a uno dei più straordinari corpi d'élite del mondo, offrendoci l'unico resoconto in prima persona di una delle loro missioni più spettacolari.

Dopo aver descritto in No Easy Day la più importante e clamorosa operazione di intelligence degli ultimi anni – l'uccisione di Osama bin Laden –, Mark Owen torna a raccontare le sue imprese di Navy SEAL. In No Hero l'attenzione si allontana dalle missioni da prima pagina, caratterizzate da bersagli di alto profilo, per concentrarsi sugli incarichi per Owen più significativi sul piano personale – missioni «minori» che non sono mai finite sui giornali – e sui momenti in cui l'autore ha imparato a conoscere se stesso e i suoi compagni, nei successi così come nei fallimenti. «Vorrei che No Hero offrisse qualcosa di diverso da gran parte dei libri: il lato intimo, le battaglie personali, le difficoltà e quello che ho imparato affrontandole» dichiara Owen. «Le storie che racconto in No Hero sono un omaggio ai miei compagni e a tutti gli altri SEAL, ancora in servizio o meno, che hanno dedicato la loro vita alla libertà. Nella nostra comunità ci viene sempre insegnato a essere i mentori della generazione successiva e a trasmettere agli altri le lezioni e i valori che abbiamo appreso, in modo che possano servire alle generazioni che verranno. È quello che spero di aver fatto per i lettori di No Hero.» Carico di azione come No Easy Day, con storie che spaziano dall'addestramento ai campi di battaglia, No Hero offre per la prima volta al lettore uno sguardo ravvicinato su esperienze e valori che hanno reso Mark Owen, e i SEAL con i quali ha prestato servizio, in grado di portare a termine le missioni che leggiamo sui giornali.

“One of the very best books to come out of the war in Iraq,” (Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, bestselling author of On Killing), The Last Punisher is a gripping and intimate on-the-ground memoir from a Navy SEAL who was part of SEAL Team THREE with American Sniper Chris Kyle. Experience his deployment, from his first mission to his first kill to his eventual successful return to the United States to play himself in the Oscar-nominated film directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Bradley Cooper. The Last Punisher is a “thoughtful, funny, and raw…always compelling” (Bing West, New York Times bestselling author of No True Glory) first-person account of the Iraq War. With wry humor and moving testimony, Kevin Lacz tells the bold story of his tour in Iraq with SEAL Team THREE, the warrior elite of the Navy. This legendary unit, known as “The Punishers,” included Chris Kyle (American Sniper), Mike Monsoor, Ryan Job, and Marc Lee. These brave men were instrumental in securing the key locations in the pivotal 2006 Battle of Ramadi. Minute by minute, Lacz relays the edge-of-your-seat details of his team’s missions in Ramadi, offering a firsthand glimpse into the heated combat, extreme conditions, and harrowing experiences they faced every day. Through it all, Lacz and his teammates formed unbreakable bonds and never lost sight of the cause: protecting America with their fight. “A rare glimpse into the mind of a Navy SEAL,” (Clint Emerson, New York Times bestselling author of 100 Deadly Skills) Kevin Lacz brings you onto the battlefield and relays the tough realities of war. At the same time, Lacz shares how these experiences made him a better man and how proud he is of his contributions to one of this country’s most difficult military campaigns. The Last Punisher is the story of a SEAL and an “honest-to-God American hero” (Mike Huckabee, #1 bestselling author) who was never afraid to answer the call.

Immediate Action is a no-holds-barred account of an extraordinary life, from the day Andy McNab was found in a carrier bag on the steps of Guy's Hospital to the day he went to fight in the Gulf War. As a delinquent youth he kicked against society. As a young soldier he waged war against the IRA in the streets and fields of South Armagh. As a member of 22 SAS Regiment he was at the centre of covert operations for nine years - on five continents. Recounting with grim humour and in riveting, often horrifying, detail his activities in the world's most highly trained and efficient Special Forces unit, McNab sweeps us into a world of surveillance and intelligence-gathering, counter-terrorism and hostage rescue.There are casualties: the best men are so often the first to be killed, because they are in front. By turns chilling, astonishing, violent, funny and moving, this blistering first-hand account of life at the forward edge of battle confirms Andy McNab's standing in the front rank of writers on modern war.
