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.

On a clear night in late June 2005, four U.S. Navy SEALs left their base in northern Afghanistan for the mountainous Pakistani border. Their mission was to capture or kill a notorious al Qaeda leader known to be ensconced in a Taliban stronghold surrounded by a small but heavily armed force. Less then twenty-four hours later, only one of those Navy SEALs remained alive. This is the story of fire team leader Marcus Luttrell, the sole survivor of Operation Redwing, and the desperate battle in the mountains that led, ultimately, to the largest loss of life in Navy SEAL history. But it is also, more than anything, the story of his teammates, who fought ferociously beside him until he was the last one left-blasted unconscious by a rocket grenade, blown over a cliff, but still armed and still breathing. Over the next four days, badly injured and presumed dead, Luttrell fought off six al Qaeda assassins who were sent to finish him, then crawled for seven miles through the mountains before he was taken in by a Pashtun tribe, who risked everything to protect him from the encircling Taliban killers. A six-foot-five-inch Texan, Leading Petty Officer Luttrell takes us, blow-by-blow, through the brutal training of America's warrior elite and the relentless rites of passage required by the Navy SEALs. He transports us to a monstrous battle fought in the desolate peaks of Afghanistan, where the beleaguered American team plummeted headlong a thousand feet down a mountain as they fought back through flying shale and rocks. In this rich , moving chronicle of courage, honor, and patriotism, Marcus Luttrell delivers one of the most powerful narratives ever written about modern warfare-and a tribute to his teammates, who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
