No Easy Day, written by a member of the famous Navy Seal team, Mark Owen, is a first person account of the planning and execution of Bin Laden. He, along with other members of the Navy Seal team, witnessed Bin Laden’s final moments.
This book gives a detailed account of the 24 member team and how they trained for this special and very dangerous mission—that of killing Bin Laden. This book begins with the helicopter crash that could have ended the author’s life up to the call that told them that Bin Laden was dead.
Also, in No Easy Day, the author describes the battle that continues on concerning the war on terror. Owen also describes other missions that disclose what life is like working and being a SEAL. He also illustrated some of the skills, experiences and victories in the War on Terror. He shows what the Navy Seals and others in the military have been doing and continue to do, to help keep America safe.
In addition, “No Easy Day” shows how strong the camaraderie is between SEALS and the intensity and planning that is involved in such a project. Owen’s book also adds a very interesting human element to what happened during this mission and even describes how Bin Laden was handled as the “men hustled the body bag to the helicopter. The team knew the historical importance of what was going on but they also knew that they had to get the job done.
This is a fascinating account of what happened that day and it showed vividly what needs to be done with a person or person who is relentless in destroying human lives.
