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.

Fearless takes you deep into SEAL Team SIX, straight to the heart of one of its most legendary operators. When Navy SEAL Adam Brown woke up on March 17, 2010, he didn’t know he would die that night in the Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan—but he was ready: In a letter to his children, not meant to be seen unless the worst happened, he wrote, “I’m not afraid of anything that might happen to me on this earth, because I know no matter what, nothing can take my spirit from me.” Long before Adam Brown became a member of the elite SEAL Team SIX—the counterterrorism unit that took down Osama bin Laden—he was a fun-loving country boy from Hot Springs, Arkansas, whose greatest goal had been to wear his high school’s football jersey. An undersized daredevil, prone to jumping off roofs into trees and off bridges into lakes, Adam was a kid who broke his own bones but would never break a promise to his parents. But after high school, Adam fell in with the wrong crowd, and his family watched as his appetite for risk dragged him into a downward spiral that eventually landed him in jail. Battling his inner demons on a last-chance road to redemption, Adam had one goal: to become the best of the best—a U.S. Navy SEAL. An absorbing chronicle of heroism and humanity, Fearless presents an indelible portrait of a highly trained warrior who would enter a village with weapons in hand to hunt terrorists, only to come back the next day with an armload of shoes and meals for local children. It is a deeply personal, revealing glimpse inside the SEAL Team SIX brotherhood that also shows how these elite operators live out the rest of their lives, away from danger, as husbands, fathers, and friends. Fearless is the story of a man of extremes, whose courage and determination was fueled by faith, family, and the love of a woman. It’s about a man who waged a war against his own worst impulses and persevered to reach the top tier of the U.S. military. Always the first to volunteer for the most dangerous assignments, Adam’s final act of bravery led to the ultimate sacrifice. Adam Brown was a devoted man who was an unlikely hero but a true warrior, described by all who knew him as fearless.

Lt. Michael Patrick Murphy, commander of Navy SEAL Team 10, posthumously received the Congressional Medal of Honor for his heroic actions on 28 June 2005 during a fierce battle with Taliban fighters in the remote mountains of eastern Afghanistan. Michael was the first recipient of the nation’s highest military honor as a result of U.S. involvement in Afghanistan. He was also the first naval officer to earn the medal since the Vietnam War, and the first SEAL to be honored posthumously. A young man of great character, he is the subject of Naval Special Warfare courses on leadership, and an Arleigh Burke–class guided missile destroyer, naval base, school, post office, ball park, and hospital emergency room have all been named in his honor. In his bestselling book, Marcus Luttrell, the only survivor of Operation Red Wings, called Michael “the best officer I ever knew, an iron-souled warrior of colossal, almost unbelievable courage in the face of the enemy.” SEAL of Honor tells the story of Michael’s life and how he came to be that man of selfless courage and honor. This biography argues that his heroic action during the deadly firefight with the Taliban revealed his true character and attempts to answer why Michael readily sacrificed his life for his comrades. SEAL of Honor is the story of a valiant young man who was recognized by his peers for his compassion and leadership, because he was guided by an extraordinary sense of duty and responsibility. Tracing Michael’s journey from a seemingly ordinary life on New York’s Long Island to that remote mountainside in Afghanistan, SEAL of Honor portrays how he came to the moment of extraordinary heroism that made him the most celebrated Medal of Honor recipient since WWII. Moreover, the book brings the Afghan war back to the home front, focusing on the tight-knit Murphy family and the devastating effect his death had on them as they watched the story of Operation Red Wings unfold in the news. The book attempts to answer why Michael’s service to his country and his comrades was a calling faithfully answered, a duty justly upheld, and a life, while all too short, well lived.

They were like a band of brothers... In 1983 Andy McNab was assigned to B Squadron, one of the four Sabre Squadrons of the SAS, and within it to Air Troop, otherwise known as SEVEN TROOP. This is Andy McNab's gripping account of the time he served in the company of a remarkable group of men - from the day, freshly badged, he joined them in the Malayan jungle, to the day, ten years later, that he handed in his sand-coloured beret and started a new life. The links they forged then bound them inextricably together, but the things they saw and did during that time would take them all to breaking point - and some beyond - in the years that were to follow. He who dares doesn't always win...
