Amidst it all, he and his team forged bonds made possible only by the thrill and fear of war.

Kevin provides his insight of who, why and what it takes to become a US Navy SEAL. This book specifically talks about his account of the events in battle for Ramadi, Iraq. Once you start reading the book, it is hard to put down. Any time you read a book written by any member of the U.S. special operations, you really appreciate what they do and glad to know we have men in this country that is willing to step up to the plate and get the job done.
