Fearless about SEAL Team SIX

Fearless about SEAL Team SIX.  A deep story about Adam Brown, a Navy SEAL who fought in Afghanistan.  It is a story about the extremes in the military and how that tied into faith, family and love.  While in the military, not only was there a war against the enemy, there is a war against one's own habits and impulses.  In this story, we see one's drug addiction and perseverance to become a leader, the best of the best.  While combating personal impulses and the enemy, there is a decision that needed to be made, what is the right thing to do?  Is utilitarianism a good ideal to follow?  Should we think of the big picture and forget the ultimate sacrifices?

Eric Blehm is a vivid writer about military stories from the recent Afghanistan war after 9/11.  In the beginning of the book, we already find out that the main character, Adam Brown dies.  So, we already know what happens. But the author is able to craft the story in fine words, such that the suspense remains!

I received a review copy of this book from the publisher Waterbrook Multnomah.  Check it out!
