Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2007

This gripping, inspiring take-no-prisoners combat memoir of Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell, the lone survivor from his unit during Operation Redwing, a post-9/11 military operation on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, grabs the listener from the opening lines and won’t let go. Unabashedly patriotic and unapologetic, it is a testament to the power of duty and honor, commitment to country, and enduring bonds forged by teammates. Kevin Collins’s galvanizing performance as Luttrell takes us from his youth on an East Texas horse ranch to Seal training in Coronado, to fighting the Taliban in remote, isolated villages. With a slight Texas accent, Collins exudes the confidence and strength of a young warrior going into battle, determined to protect and defend. With almost spitting anger, he conveys the dilemma of soldiers committed to honoring “rules of engagement,” knowing the enemy does not follow those same rules. This masterful production transcends political persuasion. M.H.N. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 08]
