Marcus Luttrell's blockbuster bestseller, Lone Survivor—soon to be a major motion picture—tells 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. (12,000 words)

Auf einmal stand da eine Armee . . . SEAL-Team 10: eine Elitetruppe. Die Mission: einen Al-Qaida-Führer zur Strecke bringen. Der Feind: Dutzende zu allem entschlossene Taliban-Kämpfer. Vier SEALs gegen eine ganze Armee. Und dann bricht die Hölle los. Die Army schickt Helikopter zur Verstärkung. Neunzehn Männer kommen um, ein einziger kehrt zurück. Dies ist sein Bericht. In einer sternenklaren Nacht im späten Juni 2005 verlassen vier US Navy SEALs ihre Basis im nördlichen Afghanistan in Richtung pakistanische Grenze. Ihr Auftrag: Gefangennahme oder Tötung eines hochrangigen Al-Qaida-Führers, der mit Osama bin Laden operieren und sich in den Bergen versteckt halten soll . . . Lone Survivor ist die Geschichte von Marcus Luttrell, des einzigen Überlebenden der Operation Red Wings. Nicht nur seine drei Kameraden sterben im Gefecht mit einer unterschätzten gegnerischen Truppe, auch die komplette Besatzung des Special-Operations-Aviation-Regiments, das zur Rettung per Hubschrauber losgeschickt wurde, findet den Tod. Nur dank der Hilfe von Einheimischen, die ihn aufnehmen, pflegen und vor den Taliban beschützen, überlebt der schwer verletzte Luttrell. Seine Geschichte handelt von Angst, Tod und grenzenlosem Leid, aber auch von Mut und Treue, von Freundschaft und Hoffnung – und von dem unbedingten Willen zu überleben

In late June 2005, media sources recounted the tragic story of nineteen U.S. special operations personnel who died at the hands of insurgent / terrorist leader Ahmad Shah- and the lone survivor of Shah's ambush-deep in the Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan. The harrowing events of Operation Red Wings marked an important-yet widely misreported-chapter in the Global War on Terror, the full details of which the public burned to learn. Victory Point reveals the complete, as-yet untold, story of Operation Red Wings (often mis-referenced as "Operation Redwing"), and the follow-on mission, Operation Whalers. Together, these two U.S. Marine Corps operations (that in the case of Red Wings utilized Navy SEALs for its opening phase) unfurl not as a mission gone terribly wrong, but of a complex and difficult campaign that ultimately saw the demise of Ahmad Shan and his small army of barbarous fighters. Due to the valor, courage, and commitment of the 2nd Battalion of the 3rd Marine Regiment in the summer of 2005, Afghanistan was able to hold free elections that Fall. Here is the inspiring true account of heroism, duty, and brotherhood between Marines fighting the War on Terror.

Lt. Michael Patrick Murphy, commander of Navy SEAL Team 10, posthumously received the Congressional Medal of Honor for his heroic actions on 28 June 2005 during a fierce battle with Taliban fighters in the remote mountains of eastern Afghanistan. Michael was the first recipient of the nation’s highest military honor as a result of U.S. involvement in Afghanistan. He was also the first naval officer to earn the medal since the Vietnam War, and the first SEAL to be honored posthumously. A young man of great character, he is the subject of Naval Special Warfare courses on leadership, and an Arleigh Burke–class guided missile destroyer, naval base, school, post office, ball park, and hospital emergency room have all been named in his honor. In his bestselling book, Marcus Luttrell, the only survivor of Operation Red Wings, called Michael “the best officer I ever knew, an iron-souled warrior of colossal, almost unbelievable courage in the face of the enemy.” SEAL of Honor tells the story of Michael’s life and how he came to be that man of selfless courage and honor. This biography argues that his heroic action during the deadly firefight with the Taliban revealed his true character and attempts

Four US Navy SEALS departed one clear night in early July, 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the activity of an al Qaeda leader rumored to be very close to Bin Laden with a small army in a Taliban stronghold. Five days later, only one of those Navy SEALS made it out alive. This is the story of the only survivor of Operation Redwing, SEAL fire team leader Marcus Luttrell, and the extraordinary firefight that led to the largest loss of life in American Navy SEAL history. His squadmates fought valiantly beside him until he was the only one left alive, blasted by an RPG into a place where his pursuers could not find him. Over the next four days, terribly injured and presumed dead, Luttrell crawled for miles through the mountains and was taken in by sympathetic villagers who risked their lives to keep him safe from surrounding Taliban warriors. A born and raised Texan, Marcus Luttrell takes us from the rigors of SEAL training, where he and his fellow SEALs discovered what it took to join the most elite of the American special forces, to a fight in the

A story of courage, perseverance, and patriotism behind the 75th Ranger Regiment's rescue mission following one of the deadliest Special Ops incidents in Afghanistan--a grueling search for twelve Navy SEAL casualties and eight downed Night Stalkers . . . but just one lone survivor On June 28th, 2005, a four-man Navy SEAL reconnaissance team under Operation Red Wings was ambushed in northeastern Afghanistan--as depicted in the book and film Lone Survivor. A quick reaction force was dispatched. Turbine 33, carrying eight Navy SEALs and eight members of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, was struck by a rocket propelled grenade--careening the dual rotor chinook toward the rugged peak of Sawtalo Sar. The result was the single deadliest incident in Afghanistan Special Operations history at the time. Commanders called on the largest element of the secretive Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), the 75th Ranger Regiment. The rescue mission: Operation Red Wings II. Author Tony Brooks gives a first-hand account of the daring recovery of Turbine 33 and the subsequent search for the remaining compromised Navy SEAL recon team--one of whom was Marcus Luttrell, the lone survivor. The Rangers were up against lack of intel, treacherous terrain, violent weather, and an enemy

Matt and Jeffrey Axelson had been inseparable all their lives. Only two-and-a-half years apart, they shared almost everything. So when Jeffrey was injured while training to become a SEAL, Matt decided he would take over and become the SEAL in the family. News accounts tell us that Matthew G. Axelson died on June 28, 2005, just three days after his twenty-ninth birthday, during a firefight with a large force of Taliban soldiers in the mountainous, nearly inaccessible Hindu Kush region of eastern Afghanistan. They tell us that in Operation Red Wings a four-man team of SEALs, including Matt, had been inserted to gather intelligence and, if possible, kill a fearsome Taliban commander. And they tell us that when the four were discovered by the Taliban, these men faced down roughly two hundred enemy soldiers. This is the story that Matthew Luttrell told in his bestselling book Lone Survivor. It is a story of courage, resilience, ingenuity and heroism. It is a story that honors the four. But that is not the story Jeffrey will tell. In Axe: A Brother's Search for an American Warrior, Jeffrey recounts his brother's life in the years before that firefight, sharing the many ways in
