Description

Marcus Luttrell's blockbuster bestseller, Lone Survivor—soon to be a major motion picturetells the story of Operation Red Wings, in which four U.S. Navy SEALs were inserted into the mountains of eastern Afghanistan with the task of collecting intelligence and finding—or killing—a top al Qaeda commander. The SEALs were ambushed by over one hundred Taliban fighters and a horrific battle ensued. The rescue helicopter carrying eight SEALs was shot down by a reported Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG), killing them instantly and erasing any hope for the SEALs already on the ground. Luttrell was the only survivor.

OPERATION RED WINGS is an in-depth examination of the recovery mission to rescue Luttrell, filled with never-before-told details and shocking new revelations. Author Peter Nealen (former USMC Force Recon) and the team at SOFREP have an expansive network within the Special Operations community, providing them with access to exclusive interviews, after action reports, military intel and previously untold accounts of the rescue mission. Nealen and his team have uncovered eyewitness reports that put the "official" story into question as to how the initial rescue helicopter was shot down. If true, this potential coverup will have had severe consequences on subsequent helicopter insertion operations and put lives at risk.

Complete with a foreword by former Navy SEAL Brandon Webb, this is a must-have companion to the blockbuster book and upcoming film.

    Very informative read following the events that occurred in 'Lone Surivor'. What our soldiers went through to bring this extremely unfortunate situation to a close. If you've read 'Lone Survivor', you need to read this. Great book Peter Nealen!

    It was great to read this right after I read Lone Survivor. It provided the other half of the story. I also like how the author defends Marcus in saying that those that criticize his account have no right because they weren't there and most have never been in combat let alone gone through what he went through. Great book by a marine who "gets it."
  • Good read
