Here are ten suspenseful, serpentine stories of betrayal, blackmail, murder, and revenge...all culminating in shocking twists of fate.

An account, from one of the SEALS involved in the raid and killing of Bin Laden. The book first gives an account of what you go through to become a Navy SEAL and then delves into the actual planning and assault on Bin Laden's compound. So if you are not looking to learn about the SEAL training, this is not the book to read. It was a quick easy read for me. ( )

This book was bought for me as a gift last Christmas and had sat on the shelf sadly neglected until now. I have to admit that I was afraid of two things with this book. The first is that it may have been a poorly written and rush attempt at cashing in on the death of Bin Laden. The second fear I had, and I apologise in advance if this offends anyone, was that is may contain loads of frat boy esq, chest thumping, uber patriotic nonsense. I don't like that kind of thing at the best of times and especially not where any form of combat is involved.

I am very happy to report that these fears did not apply to this book. There is no chest thumping, just the confidence that comes with knowing that you are extremely good at what you do. It is also very well written and I got sucked into the action every time I picked it up. There isn't a huge amount of autobiographical information in the book which is probably for a combination of security requirements and sticking to the main story. Owen covers some of the training which is involved at making it as a Navy Seal and then covers a few earlier missions that he and his men carried out. Interestingly enough this included the rescue of captain Richard Phillips which has recently been made into a movie staring Tom Hanks.

The failures and successes of the Bin Laden operation are covered equally and Owen is keen to make sure the reader knows that he is one part of a larger machine. In particular he praises the helicopter pilot who managed to crash his helicopter in such a way that no one was hurt. The mission could have been over before it had started but despite this accident the men on the ground improvised and overcome.

At the end of the book Owen also shows a keen appreciation of the politics behind the operation and the effect that success or failure would have had in the political arena. This is a really nice addition that a lot of military memoirs leave untouched unless they have an axe to grind.

This is a very enjoyable book. ( )

"No Easy Day" details some of the author's experiences as a member of SEAL Team Six, the SEAL team involved in the raid which led to the killing of Osama Bin Laden. The book doesn't go into too much detail about what it takes to become a Navy SEAL, nor into too much detail about how our Intelligence forces were able to locate Bin Laden. For more details about those areas, I recommend Howard Wasdin's "SEAL Team Six" and Peter Bergen's "Manhunt" as excellent references.

The taking of Bin Laden was ten years in the making, and was a significant event in the U.S. War on Terror, making this book significant. While much of the raid on the Bin Laden compound in Abbottabad became general knowledge soon after Bin Laden was killed, "No Easy Day" provides a fairly unfiltered first-hand account and additional information by one of the men on the ground.

Reading the book in early December, 2012 made it especially relevant to me, since this week Petty Officer Nicolas Checque, a member of Seal Team 6, was just killed in Afghanistan during the rescue of kidnapped American doctor Dilip Joseph. This current event made me appreciate the work of the SEALs that much more, knowing that their efforts continue, often behind the scenes, to rescue, protect, or eliminate threats to our National security. The bravery, skill, sacrifices and dedication of the Team Members is a story which can't be told enough.

At one minute out, the Black Hawk crew chief slid the door open.  I could just make him out - his night vision goggles covering his eyes - holding up one finger.  I glanced around and saw my SEAL teammates calmly passing the sign through the helicopter.
