Synopsis

The U.S. Navy SEALs—named for the three environments from which they operate (SEa, Air, Land)—was organized and created during World War II and over the past seventy years have taken the lead in many special operations missions that have protected the United States. In this quick read, Hans Halberstadt writes about the SEALs's most famous mission—finding and killing Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad, Afghanistan, on May 1st and 2nd, 2011. Halberstadt writes about the art of the SEALs raid, the importance of safe houses, the escape-and-evasion plan, launching the mission from Pakistan, the basics of the raid, as well as the aftermath of the bin Laden mission. This quick read also includes current U.S. Navy SEALs speaking about their profession and all-encompassing lifestyle in their own words.
