Fearless: The Undaunted Courage and Ultimate Sacrifice of Navy SEAL Team SIX Operator Adam Brown by Eric Blehm {Book Review}

Publisher's Summary:
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.

My Thoughts:
This really was a great book. It takes you inside the mind of a fearless Navy SEAL from his childhood through to his wife and children, and his death in combat. From a life of drug addiction and loss of sight in one eye to pouring himself into his career and his family and his God. The author teaches you about the Navy SEAL life so that you truly understand the sacrifices made and the character of Adam Brown. I was amazed and the training that SEALs go through. This is a great read, especially for people interested in military life. Retired military would enjoy it as well.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
