Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell & Patrick Robinson Book Summary

Follow along a Navy SEAL's firsthand account of American heroism during a secret military operation in Afghanistan in this true story of survival and difficult choices.

On a clear night in late June 2005, four U.S. Navy SEALs left their base in northern Afghanistan for the mountainous Pakistani border. Their mission was to capture or kill a notorious al Qaeda leader known to be ensconced in a Taliban stronghold surrounded by a small but heavily armed force. Less then twenty-four hours later, only one of those Navy SEALs remained alive.

This is the story of fire team leader Marcus Luttrell, the sole survivor of Operation Redwing, and the desperate battle in the mountains that led, ultimately, to the largest loss of life in Navy SEAL history. But it is also, more than anything, the story of his teammates, who fought ferociously beside him until he was the last one left-blasted unconscious by a rocket grenade, blown over a cliff, but still armed and still breathing. Over the next four days, badly injured and presumed dead, Luttrell fought off six al Qaeda assassins who were sent to finish him, then crawled for seven miles through the mountains before he was taken in by a Pashtun tribe, who risked everything to protect him from the encircling Taliban killers.

A six-foot-five-inch Texan, Leading Petty Officer Luttrell takes us, blow by blow, through the brutal training of America's warrior elite and the relentless rites of passage required by the Navy SEALs. He transports us to a monstrous battle fought in the desolate peaks of Afghanistan, where the beleaguered American team plummeted headlong a thousand feet down a mountain as they fought back through flying shale and rocks.

In this rich, moving chronicle of courage, honor, and patriotism, Marcus Luttrell delivers one of the most powerful narratives ever written about modern warfare -- and a tribute to his teammates, who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

Amazing book. This is the third book I've read about The Seals, all have been beyond enjoyable to read. I'm amazed at what these true patriots go through to serve and protect our country. I was more than overjoyed that Marcus wrote several times, in length, about the ROE and how hindering they are to those out in the battlefield. I think 'war rules' should be left up to the military and those out there doing the fighting. Not the politicians sitting in their cushy offices in DC. I read this book in less than one week, it's THAT good!

Outstanding.. Every American should read this book cover to cover. These guys are true hero's, legends, patriots, freedom fighters, protectors. I will be forever grateful to all the SEALS who paid the ultimate price that day for our freedom and to Marcus Lutrell. Thank you. It was an honor to read this book. Justin Raleigh NC

Simply Amazing!. One of the best books I've read. A great story about a true American Hero. An absolute must read!

Awesome. A great book of the brave men who died for our freedom words can't express the gratitude and thankful for their sacrifice this is the best book I have read and was hard to put it down also thankful for those afghans who fought and helped Marcus

Lone Survivor. I am sure glad that there are people in this world who are trained at this level and do what 99 percent of U.S. Could never withstand or handle

Very humbling. Extremely humbling to read. What Marcus and his team sacrificed is truly amazing. Couldn't put the book down. Makes me want to go slap the crap out of a liberal. Maybe two for good measure.

Speechless. After catching the movie on HBO, I had to read the book. Simply a super powerful story. Semper Fi Marcus

Amazing Story. Great Read. Strongly recommend it.

Just inspiring. I read the book and also seen the movie but this story is overall phenomenal! I highly recommend.

From one Texan to another. This book, along with the late Navy SEAL Chris Kyle's book "American Sniper", are the best war books I've read. While reading the book, I had moments where I laughed at the humor this man had even while fighting for his life, as well as moments of sadness for what he and his team endured. The bravery of Marcus Luttrell and the rest of his team, is something we could all learn from and be thankful for that we have men like these that protect our everyday freedoms. I felt inspired while reading this book to never give up on anything no matter what the situation is at the moment, but to keep fighting and pressing forward. From one Texan to another Mr.Luttrell,you truly are a guardian of freedom and of the beautiful state of Texas. May God continue to bless you and your family sir!

Truly Remarkable. The story told by Marcus is simply amazing.

The best book. This is by far the best book really in depth about everything and it's crazy what he went through, God bless you and thank you for protecting us and thank you for your service.

Lone Survivor. Best military history I have ever read,bar none. Marcus, I’m going to miss you!

Must read. A warriors story that details what the finest we have may he called upon to do. It’s easy to read of our successes in the war on terror. Seldom, however, do we know of its price. Marcus’s story will tell you that price. The sacrifice these people make on our behalf is incredible. The least we can do in return is to learn what they’ve given. For far too many, it’s everything and it’s not pretty how they go. Read this, then thank God for these men and make sure we always remember their sacrifice. It’s our duty and responsibility to remember. This book will help you do exactly that.

Fiction, sold as fact, without the quality of a Lee Child novel. I enjoyed the story but many parts did not ring true. A bit of digging has me convinced that the narrative is false in most ways that matter. The account of Gulab, the man who saved Luttrell, is far more credible (Newsweek published an article in June of 2016 summarizing interviews with witnesses, including Gulab). For readers of fiction, Lee Child’s Jack Reacher novels are far better. History buffs should definitely look elsewhere for facts.

Hard To Imagine. "Lone Survivor" provides far more detail about young Americans at war than one can possibly imagine. There are many disturbing parts, not the least of which are how our warriors need to consider how the media and lawyers have such a profound and life-threatening effect on their ability to protect themselves while waging war for the U.S.

Lone Survivor. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It made me feel that the military is saving someone’s life every day in some part of the world. Thank you Marcus Luttrell for writing this account of your time in the Navy! It opened my eyes to the incredibly difficult, scary, lonesome days you endured. Thank You.

Best book I've ever read. Truly a great story.

Amazing, a Patriots required reading. Very telling, and remarkable! Should be an American Patriots required reading!

MAGNIFICENT. iv finished the book. magnificent and tragic and magnificent honor and gods blessings to SEAL TEAM 5, their family and friends. you live in theirs AND my memory till death. i cant watch the movie and eapecially the end credits without tears. GOD bless america and GOD DOES BLESS THE NAVY SEALS

Great book. If your looking for a great book pick this one up

Lone survivor. Good book

Seriously a good read.. I can not express the fact that I am sitting here and wishing I had made a more serious effort to pursue special forces when I had the chance. Unlike Marcus, I chickened out. Reading this book though, I have come to appreciate these great warriors and to never doubt what our men and women in service sacrifice for us daily. Love this book!

RESPECT. Every American owes these men the respect and gratitude their selfless acts of patriotism duty and dedication demand. Honor their legacies lives and sacrifices by reading this story. Freedom isn’t free by no means God Bless these men and their family’s! I only wish there were more we could do to thank them and pay tribute to their selfless acts.

A story of American values. It seems too small to ever say "Thank you for your service to our country. " but God Bless you, your family, the true Patriots who gave their last full measure. Thank you for reminding us through this book of the sacrifices The Seals and others have made and still make every day. Our Country, including Texas, is a better place for your Service.

When I get to Heaven I will know this book helped me get there!. Thank God for our military! As one song says, "My boat of life sails on a stormy sea...", I've often found myself in a spiritual storm and battle on the sea of life. As a pastor, husband and father of three, I have never been in the honorable military like this great book's author has. I have, however, been enlisted in the army of my Lord. I have been attacked by the unseen enemy of the soul and have been faced with the ultimate decision of fighting on or giving up! I have never wanted to give up nor fail. "Perseverance" has been the battle-cry of the ministry since long before I came along. In the middle of a great battle in my life, I encountered this book. I must say, the pastor in me had to "skim" over some "colorful" words in the book but, that not withstanding, I found the relentless tenacity of the SEALS described in this book to be transcendent from letter to life and, as I read, their strength gave me strength! I was reminded and assured, as they endured, that I can "endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ". I am forever grateful that God allowed me to know of this book. According to Romans 8:28, all things work together for the good. "All things" are NOT necessarily good...but they work for the good. Not everything that happened during operation Redwing was good. Much of it was very bad. But, it still worked together for the good. As he falls down the mountain and wonders how or why God allows his rifle to stay by his side, I feel the Holy Ghost minister to me that He will always be with me; especially in adversity! Mr. Marcus Luttrell is a hero! They're all four heroes! I thank God for ALL our brave men and women in uniform, fighting for our freedom! I thank God for Marcus Luttrell and this book. When I get to heaven, I will know that God used this book, it's author and its contents to help me get there! I'm eternally grateful. In Him, Pastor Daniel Carter Solid Rock Apostolic Church

Disappointing. Skip the first 6 chapters if you have other books detailing the grueling training seals go through. The story itself is great but the author is highly opinionated, full of himself. This takes away from the story. By the end if the book I had trouble telling what was real vs hot air from a "good o'ld boy" from Texas. If you like this sort of subject, 13 hours in Benghazi is a far better book

Amazing book.. Emotional book filled with the detail of the battlefield as seen through the eyes of Marcus. Marcus takes you on his journey from the beginning and makes you feel and try to understand what he felt there on that mountain. Great great book showing the courage and perseverance of the United States Navy SEALS.

The Lone Survivor. Excellent book, makes me proud to be an American! God bless all of our soldiers and veterans! Some gave all, and all gave some! Read the book then watch the movie!

What can be said?. When heroes need heroes, they can find them in books such as these. America is great because of patriots such as these live... And sometimes sacrifice it all. Toughen up America... There is real evil out there. Thank GOD we have brave people such as these to stand in the gap.

Proud to be an American. If this book doesn’t make you proud to be an American nothing will. Thank you for your service Marcus!

Lone Survivor. Page-turner. Uncommon valor. I will vote Republican in the 2016 presidential campaign bc this book clearly makes a case for the need to alter the "rules of engagement". Personally, I think Trump is a moron but if Marcus Luttrell supports him... then that's good enough for me.

Ooh Rah!. What a great depiction of true American Valor. I only hope that this story is never forgotten. Semper Fidelis.

Lone Survivor. A gut wrenching story about a kind and gentle giant both physically, and in heart, to all who know him. He accomplished his mission. He got home to tell his friends’ story. They did not die in vain. Marcus Lutrell gave all he had for you and for me, to keep this nation free of the “bad guys”. May the wind be always at your back sir. May we as a nation always remember the sacrifices made by our warriors, who stand in the gap. This book is a record of much of what they go through, and those who are left behind. Thank You and God Bless the United States of America.

Lone Survivor. This book kept me ever increasingly glued to the pages. A nonfictional roll out of wounded, stalked prey's survival against merciless odds. You will not be able to put it down. CPT James Huff USAR

Best read ever. Thank you Marcus and God bless our brave Seals!!!

Had me laughing one moment and in tears the next. A true hero and true Texan. This book sent me through a whirlwind of emotions I was a proud Texan reading Marcus Luttrell's perspective which was relatable to the point it had me laughing, in a panic and also crying but ultimately I couldn't put the book down. My heart really goes out to all the men and women who fight for our country by putting their lives on the line with courage and dignity. God bless America and God bless Texas!

Marcus. Words cannot express my admiration and gratitude. You are an inspiration and your service to the USA is a reminder that anything I could possibly do is inadequate. As I read this book, my heart shared in a very small way, the pain and sorrow you endured preserving the honor and freedom my family enjoys. God bless you and God bless the United States of America

Great read. Great to hear the story as it happened, not from the liberal media.

Fantastic. The movie seriously does this book no justice

Lone Surivor. If you want something a heck of a lot better, and more detailed than the movie "Lone Survivor", read the book stating the events of Op. Redwing, titled "Lone Survivor."

Marcus Luttrell. Thanks Marcus, for your story of you and your brothers. I will never forget.

Seals. Amazing!!!

Lone Survivor. Great read, understanding what a seal is and what it means to be part of this eleit group of hard working individuals, that respect our flag and country!

A Seal experience. Great explanation on the effort it takes to become navy seals and all the risks they take on modern warfare.

Even better than the movie!!. Awesome book. Really keeps you captivated the whole time. God bless all our service men and women, especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Intense and inspiring. This was hands down one of the best books I have ever read. It was an intense and powerful story that kept me from putting the book down. Being able to see war from Marcus Luttrell's eyes was intriguing. The Book started off slow when Marcus was introducing the rest of the Navy Seals that were mentioned in the story, but as you get deeper into the book the mood shifts and your entire perspective on military training and war changes. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys an emotional read. The book is a rollercoaster of emotion; One minute you are smiling at the teamwork and hard work the Seals face, then the next page could be Marcus explaining the tragic loss of his loved friends. This book would be better for entertainment rather than being used in a school curriculum because it could be sensitive for some readers. I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone who knows people in the Military because it could make them panicked and upset at the hard truth these men go through. The book was more intense than the movie because Marcus was able to explain more about his friends and how much they meant to him. The book went more into depth about the characters and their families which made the story more emotional. Marcus’s writing style also keeps the book interesting by using flashbacks to his childhood and telling the story about his life. I would rate this book five stars because it kept me entertained while opening my eyes on the truth about war and the respect I have for then men in the military.

Amazing. 'Nough said..,

Captivating. A great read about his life.

Unbelievable. This book set me on a path of reading and learning all about the United States Military and military history. Marcus Luttrell is an inspiring person with a story that is both wonderful and heart breaking. This is the only book I’ve ever read that made me physically tear up at times.

Incredible.. By far, one of the best books I've ever read. A true story of survival, bravery, perseverance, friendship and loyalty, not just of Marcus Lutrell, but also of his fellow SEALs who fought to the death. I'm so glad I read this book.

Wow factor... Numbing!. A fantastic story of heroism and courage.. The western world owes these fighting warriors unending gratitude and respect for giving their all... protecting our way of life. Thank you.

WOW. One of the best stories I have ever read. Because its true. What a blessing to read. Thank God for our troops.

jcjcidisk kkdk. où puis-je trouver ce livre mais en français ?

Excellent. This book was great! So much admiration and respect for our men and women overseas.

Loved it!. What a great book! Best I have read in a long time.

Amazing book. The story of Marcus Luttrel and of the Seal team he belonged to is amazing. Heroism, courage, friendship, patriotism and more values that are hard to find nowadays. Bravo for this soldiers! You will feel like you were there. I'll never forget this book. My prayers go to those heroes who lost their lives and to their families.

Good. It was a good but but not as good as American Sniper in my opinion

Lone Survivor. Amazing book... Amazing what Marcus been through

Lone Survivor. Amazingly written book. Navy Seals are heros and God rest their souls!

Numbing. An amazing book almost too surreal to be true.

Excellent. Didn’t read the book until just this week so, while the incidents it speaks to are from a few years ago it is still relevant today. In fact, probably more relevant today than when it was written given the current state of political correctness run amok.

Lone Suvivor. Amazing book! Vivid details and piercing emotion that could only be topped by actually being there. An incredible story of bravery, courage, and unbreakable determination!

AWESOME!!!. Enjoyed every page to the very end, God bless the men/women of our military.

Lone survivor. I watched the movie first it was amazing but the book was more of Marcus's first hand account un holly wooded if you will, both the movie and the book we really good, nothing will bring back anyone who lost their lives in war.

Lone Survivor. Great story, but certainly could have been better written. That said, i did enjoy it.

Absolutely wonderful. This book is as great as the warriors it honors. Thank you for allowing me to participate!

Powerful. Amazing story about valor, honor and country. Thank you Marcus

A Super Read!. I purchased this book because it was mentioned in Chris Kyle's American Sniper. I really had a hard time putting this book down, so I could sleep! There were times I almost peed myself laughing! And there were other times I cried like a two-year old. I really thought there was almost too much information about the Navy rules, etc. But if the Navy approved it, then I am wrong. I really would recommend this book. And, I would like to take a few minutes to thank all of the US military.

Terrific. An excellent book, well written and detailed.

The very expensive price of freedom. I just finished re-reading this book, and I would say that it should be required reading for all of us that live in freedom,just so we have a tiny bit of a clue of the price that others are paying to protect our freedom. Well written and fast paced, and told from a unique viewpoint.
