The blow-by-blow narrative of the assault, beginning with the helicopter crash that could have ended Owen’s life straight through to the radio call confirming Bin Laden’s death, is an essential piece of modern history.In No Easy Day, Owen also takes readers into the War on Terror and details the formation of the most elite units in the military.

With boots-on-the-ground detail, Owen describes several missions that illustrate the life and work of a SEAL and the evolution of the team after the events of September 11.In telling the true story of the SEALs whose talents, skills, experiences, and exceptional sacrifices led to one of the greatest victories in the War on Terror, Mark Owen honors the men who risk everything for our country, and he leaves readers with a deep understanding of the warriors who keep America safe.Keywords: MARK OWN KEVIN MAURER NO EASY DAY FIRSTHAND ACCOUNT MISSION THAT KILLED OSAMA BIN LADEN MIDDLE EAST MILITARY HISTORY TERRORISM AUTOBIOGRAPHY NAVY SEAL UNITED STATES AMERICA
