When I saw a recommendation on David Lussier’s Facebook page for the book ‘Lone Survivor,’ I picked up a copy and read it. The account of SEAL Team 10 written by Marcus Luttrell with Patrick Robinson is an eye-opener for those who have never fought in a war zone. You begin to see how the Rules of Engagement (ROE) affect decisions for troops confronting an enemy who can be almost impossible to identify.
The authors did an excellent job of telling a story that puts the reader there alongside 4 members of a SEAL team heading to a dangerous mission along the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan. The target of the mission was an al Qaeda leader in an area dominated by Taliban.
