"For the first time anywhere, the first-person account of the planning and execution of the Bin Laden raid from a Navy Seal who confronted the terrorist mastermind and witnessed his final moments. Writing under a pseudonym to protect his anonymity, a member of the elite SEAL Team Six provides a behind-the-scenes, first-person account of all his dangerous assignments around the globe, including the training, planning and execution of his most important mission, the killing of Osama bin Laden.
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, operator 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."
