Another compelling look into the reality of Navy SEALS. After the death of Chris Kyle, I think attention to this group became even more prevalent. And I was interested in their stories and missions.
The truth of the story in Ramadi kept me reading into the late night hours. It's a bit te...

Really good! One of the best I've read on the war in Iraq. I actually liked it better than Chris Kyle's book. I think you get a better picture of just how great he was by seeing him how his teammates saw him. But this book isn't all about Chris. People will love Dauber himself and all the 'Teamgu...

This is simply the best Iraq war book I've read. It is genuine and authentic, written in a warriors voice - full of the dark humor, slang and vulgarity of the SEAL brotherhood. Kevin and his co-authors give us a peek into the mind of an elite warfighter during a six month deployment to Ramadi ear...

Kevin's account of SEAL Team THREE was terrifying and kep...

Chris Kyle was the Navy SEAL nicknamed “The Legend” for having the largest number of confirmed kills (the Pentagon credits him with 150). He wrote American Sniper, was played by Bradley Cooper in the movie based on the book, and was this author’s mentor. Kyle even gave the author his nickname “Da...
