Description

The Navy SEALs have been fighting terrorists around the world for over a decade. And for all that time, the Bandito Platoon SEALS from SEAL Team Seven have been on continuous combat rotation. Now they have drawn a shipboard assignment off Central America—an easy day.
 
But for a Navy SEAL, the only easy day was yesterday.
 
In a powerful story of global anti-terrorism inspired by real life missions, Act of Valor combines stunning combat scenes, up-to-the minute battlefield technology, and heart-pumping emotion for the ultimate action adventure.
 
Act of Valor takes you deep into the secretive world of today’s most elite, highly trained group of warriors. When the rescue of a kidnapped CIA operative leads to the discovery of a deadly terrorist plot against the United States, a team of SEALs is dispatched on a worldwide manhunt. As the men of Bandito Platoon race to stop a coordinated attack that could kill and wound thousands of American civilians, they must balance their commitments to country, team, and their families back home.
 
But each time they accomplish their mission, a new piece of intelligence reveals another shocking twist to the plot, which stretches from Chechnya to the Philippines and from Ukraine to Somalia. The widening operation sends the SEALs across the globe as they track the terrorist ring to the U.S.-Mexico border—where they engage in an epic firefight with potentially unimaginable consequences for America…

    This book shows Navy Seals taking on the hardest challenges that can be given to man. It shows how they track down their target, but also getting rid of other foes silently, fast, and hide the dead body.

    Cover to cover, it's all good stuff. I picked the book up and didn't put it down until I was finished. Very well written...looking forward to seeing the motion picture now. God Bless our Military and God Bless our SEALS!

    Seems s little odd to me that the U.S. Navy would be allowing a Senior Chief Intel. Guy to be the designer of any major conflict in different location of the world, without at least some sort of coordination with Higher Headquarters. Particularly when events happen within forgiven nations.

    This book gives those who have never experienced the brotherhood a brief example of it. No greater sacrifice than that of a line of duty death. Amazing book!

    Though hard to put into the right words, I'm left with simply amazing! Excellent job of making you feel like you're right with them every step of the way. I am in complete awe of these courageous warriors, and am extremely grateful for the sacrifices each of them and their families make to ensure our freedom. I will never again take my freedom for granted. Though I now know how it will end, I can't wait to see the movie. I'm confident that I will be further moved by their honor, dedication and unshakeable bravery.
