A Navy SEAL at War

In Service, bestselling author Marcus Luttrell turns his focus from his own experiences as a combat-trained Navy SEAL to the nature of service on America's battlefields and the soldiers who give their lives to defend their nation and each other. Still fresh from Operation Ramadi in Iraq and Operation Redwing in Afghanistan, Luttrell retired from the SEALS and began the turbulent transition back to civilian life, embarking on a quest to understand why a rare few choose to dedicate their lives to the protection of their country for a cause that is both abstract and deeply personal. Touring the country and connecting with veterans of all generations, he met with military from all the service branches—Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines—with the hope of making their stories known. Service spans the entire spectrum of modern U.S. military history, from World War II to the present, and touches the signature locales that define our martial tradition, from West Point to the Naval Academy to the quiet footfalls of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. A powerful narrative about the unbreakable ties that bind together America's brotherhood of battle, Service is a timeless tribute to American military service.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Marcus Luttrell served, and gave parts of his body and soul to, the U.S. Navy as a member of SEAL Team 5 in Afghanistan and Iraq. This book recounts his awakening as a soldier, a freedom fighter, and someone willing to give his life for his country. Kevin T. Collins is the main narrator, and Colleen Werthmann delivers selections from letters at the end of the book. Collins reads with a breathy, urgent tone meant to convey both the gallantry and weariness of someone who's served in dangerous combat operations. He has a slight Southern accent and urges the story forward with clear diction and a down-home tone. Werthmann also has a slight Southern accent, and she reads the letters home with feeling.
