Service by James D. Hornfischer & Marcus Luttrell Book Summary

Marcus Luttrell, author of the #1 bestseller Lone Survivor, share war stories about true American heroism from himself and other soldiers who bravely fought alongside him.
Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell returned from his star-crossed mission in Afghanistan with his bones shattered and his heart broken. So many had given their lives to save him -- and he would have readily done the same for them. As he recuperated, he wondered why he and others, from America's founding to today, had been willing to sacrifice everything-including themselves-for the sake of family, nation, and freedom.

In Service, we follow Marcus Luttrell to Iraq, where he returns to the battlefield as a member of SEAL Team 5 to help take on the most dangerous city in the world: Ramadi, the capital of war-torn Al Anbar Province. There, in six months of high-intensity urban combat, he would be part of what has been called the greatest victory in the history of U.S. Special Operations forces. We also return to Afghanistan and Operation Redwing, where Luttrell offers powerful new details about his miraculous rescue. Throughout, he reflects on what it really means to take on a higher calling, about the men he's seen lose their lives for their country, and the legacy of those who came and bled before.

A thrilling war story, Service is also a profoundly moving tribute to the warrior brotherhood, to the belief that nobody goes it alone, and no one will be left behind.

Service (James D. Hornfischer & Marcus Luttrell) Book Reviews

ClosureI found this book from much more compelling than his first. It is book that captures all the other phases he has gone through and includes the other branches of the service and it's members that touched his life. This is book helps continue the healing process by identifying those who serve and honoring them..Score: 5/5

Intriguing book that was long overdueThis book focuses on the ideas and principles that draws a man (or woman) into military service. As a former special operations operator, I can attest to the spirit of brotherhood that Marcus writes about. 'Service' is a great view of the human side of these special men who serve our country in the SOG. I praise Marcus for writing about his Christianity and how his faith got him through many terrible moments. This book is money well spent, and will change the way many people view our spec-ops operators around the world..Score: 5/5

Service Book review:I loved his first book, Lone Survivor, this is a great sequel to that which continues to speak about his experiences in the Navy SEALS. Before reading this book you should go read The Lone Survivor to understand his story and where he comes from. This book, like the other puts you on the battlefield with marcus and his team mates and gives you a first hand account of what is going on over there on the other side of the globe. After reading this book and Lone Survivor I was motivated to watch some videos of Marcus speaking publicly about his story, I do want to go see him speak as well as see his movie. I recommend this book to any reader looking for a good dramatic action filled reading and to any reader who has read Lone Survivor..Score: 5/5

Phenomenal book!This book was an incredible read. I just finished it after only purchasing days ago. It's sad to read what our troops go through during war but, it's also amazing to see how humble they are such as, Marcus. For anyone that knows someone in the service, or has interest in the service. This is a great prospective of what it's like for the men and women wearing those uniforms, and for their families..Score: 5/5

Books by Marcus LuttrellI have read all three. I have friends and family serving in the military. I know kids who are at all the academies. These books, bring tears to my eyes when I read of the heroism and courage of those who serve us all, and our country. I realized while reading these books the "Why they do this" question I always had. I also realized that, after 9/11/2001, those who live on the rush of adrenaline, are the best to serve this Nation. I have never met finer people than those who have served this great Nation. When I sing THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER, it is for love of country, AND ALL WHO SERVE (past, present and future) and, as my high school American History teacher, Mrs. Hamilton would say, "If I ever hear the national anthem being played, and you not singing, I WILL HAUNT YOU!". Now I know why. These BRAVE men AND women put their lives on the line for US, every day, and make life changing decisions, without hesitation. GOD BLESS ALL OUR ARMED FORCES, ARMY, ARMY NATIONAL GUARD, RANGERS, AND GREEN BERETS (I have a nephew who serves in this elite division), NAVY, ALL THE SEAL TEAMS, MARINES, COAST GUARD, AIR FORCE (I know fine men who wore the USAF uniform and one, in particular, who is an Olympic Gold Medalist!), ALL BRANCHES, AND THE ELITE TEAMS who do things no ordinary man or woman would do. UOU ARE ALL SUPER HEROS! Thank you all for your SERVICE to this great country, from one grateful American. Thank you Marcus for writing about your experience, for your undying love of country, for your brother (I will pray for his safety), for your words on the pages. It could not have been easy to relive those painful moments. AWESOME READ, AWE INSPIRING AUTHOR!.Score: 5/5

ServiceMr. Lutrell's books should be a part of any history or leadership curriculum for 8th graders, high schools, and college. The essence of selflessness and true team work is not taught enough in our country. Our young people need this training more than they need all others as a foundation to succeed in other arenas and ultimately preserve our way of life going forward. 3/25/L, 0311.Score: 5/5

Story Behind the StoryThis is a very personal look back the author's return to combat after the events documented in "Lone Survivor", as well as a much-needed fleshing out of that mission that went so horribly wrong. Marcus Luttrell tells us what service is all about, in no uncertain terms, in his own words, and in the words of others in the SOF community, including some of the wives and girlfriends. In writing this book he shines a light into some dark corners of military operations that some may find a bit uncomfortable, but he does it in a manner that honors the men who fought and died alongside him in the name of freedom. A must-read for anyone trying to make sense of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan..Score: 5/5
