No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden
Kirkus Reviews : No easy day (01 Ottobre 2012)

Since bin Laden was a significant figure, historians will consult this book as a primary source; they, as well as most general readers, will not regret it.

No Easy Day often reads like a gripping novel as the author recounts remarkably vivid details about the weeks of preparation, the agonizing wait as the go-moment grew near, the scary Black Hawk crash that almost ruined everything, and the eerie minutes in bin Laden’s bedroom as the lifeless body of the world’s most wanted man lay bleeding.

It paints an absorbing portrait of the work-a-day soldierly professionalism that proved Bin Laden's nemesis.

There is no better illustration in “No Easy Day” that SEALS are ruthless pragmatists. They think fast. They adapt to whatever faces them. They do what they have to do.

Buy Owen’s book to find out what really happened that night in Abbottabad.
