Back Cover: Fearless takes you deep into SEAL Team SIX, straight to the heart of one of its most legendary operators.
“As a rule, we don’t endorse books or movies or anything regarding the command where I work—and Adam Brown worked—but as the author writes in Fearless, ‘you have to know the rules, so you know when to bend or break them.’ This is one of those times. Read this book. Period. It succeeds where all the others have failed.” --Anonymous SEAL Team SIX Operator
When Navy SEAL Adam Brown woke up on March 17, 2010, he didn’t know he would die that night in the Hind Kush Mountains of Afghanistan—but he was ready. In a letter to his children, not meant to be seen unless the worst happened, he wrote, “I’m not afraid of anything that might happen to me on this earth, because I know no matter what, nothing can take my spirit from me.”
Fearless is the story of a man of extremes, whose courage and determination were fueled by faith, family, and the love of a woman. It’s about a man who waged a war against his own worst impulses, including drug addiction, and persevered to reach the top tier of the U.S. military. In a deeply personal and absorbing chronicle, Fearless reveals a glimpse inside the SEAL Team SIX brotherhood, and presents an indelible portrait of a highly trained warrior whose final act of bravery led to the ultimate sacrifice.
Adam Brown was a devoted man who was an unlikely hero but a true warrior, described by all who knew him as…fearless.
I cannot describe what a good book this is! I have been scrolling through lists of books to read/review and after a while I started to look into Fearless. It was amazing. Adam Brown's story is one that shows that even if you mess up, when you start anew with Christ, anything can happen. Eric Blehm did an amazing job writing this story from the many interviews of people who knew him. I felt like I knew Adam, as well as get to know his family and friends. I don't think I've ever been touched by a book as much as this. As I was reading how Adam died for our country, I couldn't stop crying. It's amazing how much others sacrifice theirselves for us, for our freedom.
Thank you all who serve our country!
I would definitely suggest this book!
I received this book free from Blogging For Books for and honest review.
