As I had mentioned in my review of "Lone Survivor" I read that book twice and I am looking forward to seeing the movie which should be out very soon. This book, "Service: A Navy SEAL at war" is a follow up of what occurred after the author, Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell recovered from his injuries and was reassigned.

This 367 page volume is organized into three parts. After showing a map of Ramadi, Iraq, a note to the reader, a preface and Prologue: Brotherhood part one begins titled "How we Fight." This section goes into great detail on the various battles and incidents involving SEALs and other U.S. armed services and how they all work together to defeat our enemies. Some of the material includes the following in this section: One more round, SEAL Team 5, Alfa Platoon, Never quit, Into the Hornet's nest, Shakeout patrol, Under fire and blown to hell, Frogman down and other stories. Part two, "How we live," covers Hitting the wall, Angels on my shoulder, That others may live, Stir-crazy and family ties. The final section, "How we die" is the shortest section and explains Heroes of the day, the Warrior Queens and Links in the chain.

The fantastic book also has a list of SEALs and UDT Team members who have died inaction since 1943 to present day.

In conclusion, this book is well-written and is as exciting to read as "Lone Survivor." If you want to know the bond all warriors have that unites them in blood, sweat and tears, you need to read this book.

Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: The Samurai Soul: An old warrior's poetic tribute)
