No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden . Pages · · MB Curtis M. Faith: Way Of The Turtle™ √PDF.

I've wanted to join it several times, but the circumstances were never right. The book generated a fair amount of controversy, because Navy SEAL missions are usually confidential, but the writer, Mark Owens, clearly explains that he has included nothing in the book that hasn't already been published in some form or another. I'm not entirely sure why. The book is a military action account, but there's not much philosophical thought or reflection in the book. There doesn't seem to be much controversy either. The fascination driving the book is the inside look at the life of a Navy SEAL, especially in context of the mission to get bin Laden. In general, the author tells how SEALs undergo rigorous physical conditioning, have die-hard dedication to their country, care for guns and other weapons with the greatest detail, have strong loyalty to their team, sometimes joke around with each other and play pranks, focus singularly on their mission, and get to travel to a lot of different hotspots on secret missions. As an autobiography, the narrator also tells a bit about his upbringing in Alaska. But the core of the book focuses on the mission to kill Osama bin Laden. Their mission drives them more than anything else. When the SEALs storm bin Laden's compound, bin Laden -- awoken in the night from his bed where he was presumably sleeping with his family -- peers around the corner to see who is down the hall when one of the seals pops a round and hits him in his head. He never says a word. As the narrator explores bin Laden's room, he finds that bin Laden had a couple of guns but no ammunition. The narrator's comment is that bin Laden turned out to be the biggest coward of them all. He remarks that higher-ups ask the younger followers to sacrifice their lives as suicide bombers and in other deadly missions, but the higher ups aren't willing to make the same sacrifices themselves -- they are cowards.

The author in disguise being interviewed on "60 Minutes" The book was always interesting, and it grabs you from the first chapters as members of SEAL Te Every now and then I like to take a break from reading romance, and since I do enjoy a good military romance, I thought I'd be interested in getting the low-down from a real military hero.

The book was always interesting, and it grabs you from the first chapters as members of SEAL Team 6 are on their way to the Bin Laden compound in Pakistan, and the helicopter that they are in is about to crash into the wall surrounding the place. Will the mission that they've practiced and trained for for the past three weeks be doomed to fail?

Well, we all know that doesn't happen, but what we don't know is that things did not exactly go smoothly Besides the details surrounding the mission to get Bin Laden and what led up to it, the author also talks about some other missions he was involved in including a few that have been in the news that you might remember--the rescue of cargo ship Captain Richard Phillips from Somali pirates is one.

While these weren't quite as exciting to read about as the Bin Laden mission, they do give you an understanding of what it's like to be a SEAL and just how much of their personal life they give up to serve their country.

For these men, the job always comes first, their familes--second. There's been lots of controversy surrounding this book-has the author given up any classified information? I don't know about that. It doesn't seem like what he's told will endanger any future missions or SEALs What he has told that might anger some people Bin Laden's family and followers is how they treated Bin Laden's body after he was dead. Not that he didn't deserve this treatment or more --it just surprised me It left a slippery trail all the way to the first deck, where Walt had put Bin Laden's body into a body bag.

As I climbed down the steps, I could see where they'd dragged the body over Khalid's body. His son's white shirt was stained with his father's blood. Racing under the spinning rotors, we threw the body on the deck and quickly climbed aboard Once again, we were jammed into the cabin.

Tom was sitting next to me. Walt had to sit on Bin Laden's body, which was lying at my feet in the center of the cabin. Owen writes that he was one of the team members present in the third-floor room of bin Laden's compound when the terrorist leader was killed.

In the months following the mission, Owen retired and began writing the book with the journalist Kevin Maurer. Owen stated that most of the proceeds from the book will be donated to families of SEALs killed in action.

Navy shortly before he separated from the service. The book's publisher disputed Webb's account, repeating co-author Maurer's statement that, After spending several very intense months working with Mark Owen on this book, I know that he wrote this book solely to share a story about the incredible men and women defending America all over the world.

Any suggestion otherwise is as ill-informed as it is inaccurate.

Little stated that the book had yet to be evaluated for sensitive information that could potentially jeopardize national security. Lieutenant Colonel James Gregory of the DoD stated that, should the book contain specialized information about SEAL weapons and tactics, Owen could potentially be charged with a criminal offense.

Luskin, responded that the non-disclosure statements only require review of items that touch certain, highly classified programs, and Owen's book does not meet that description.

Said the No Easy Op authors, It has been our experience as writers that DOD reviews are painfully long and typically are more concerned with removing information that might make senior leadership look bad than with ensuring operational security [OPSEC].

Such a review would have come with intense scrutiny and put the integrity of the story at risk.

The book's publisher was forced to postpone the book's release from its previously planned publication date of November 12, Department of Defense Press Secretary George Little told reporters the department "believe[s] that sensitive and classified information is contained in the book" and called its publication without review the "height of irresponsibility.
