Overview

The Navy SEALs have been fighting terrorists around the world for over a decade. And for all that time, the Bandito Platoon SEALS from SEAL Team Seven have been on continuous combat rotation. Now they have drawn a shipboard assignment off Central America—an easy day.
 
But for a Navy SEAL, the only easy day was yesterday.
 
In a powerful story of global anti-terrorism inspired by real life missions, Act of Valor combines stunning combat scenes, up-to-the minute battlefield technology, and heart-pumping emotion for the ultimate action adventure.
 
Act of Valor takes you deep into the secretive world of today’s most elite, highly trained group of warriors. When the rescue of a kidnapped CIA operative leads to the discovery of a deadly terrorist plot against the United States, a team of SEALs is dispatched on a worldwide manhunt. As the men of Bandito Platoon race to stop a coordinated attack that could kill and wound thousands of American civilians, they must balance their commitments to country, team, and their families back home.
 
But each time they accomplish their mission, a new piece of intelligence reveals another shocking twist to the plot, which stretches from Chechnya to the Philippines and from Ukraine to Somalia. The widening operation sends the SEALs across the globe as they track the terrorist ring to the U.S.-Mexico border—where they engage in an epic firefight with potentially unimaginable consequences for America…

I could not help but wonder how much of this work of fiction drew from real life. It was extremely humbling to think that there really exists people willing to endure what they do and sacrifice what they do not just for country, but for me. As a book, it was a great read. It really was hard to put down. My only complaint would be that it was too short. I would have loved another couple of hundred pages. Hopefully there will be a follow up novel or three. I would preorder and prepay for them now.

Costco sells this book for 5.59 for a real hold in your hands paperback. B/N wants full retail for a digital edition. Get serious. We already paid real money for our nook.

This may be the worst example of editing I've ever seen. The story starts off well, the plot is entertaining and the characters are likable. However there are numerous spelling and grammatical errors, enough to be distracting. Then as the story approaches its climax, there is suddenly a change in tense - as if someone else took over writing at that point. It was jarring, and completely throws the rhythm off. I am hard pressed to tell if my opinion of the ending is colored by this technical problem, or if it was really overly sentimental to the point of being maudlin. As much as I liked the majority of the book, the editing problems and other problems with the ending drag it down.

It was a misrepresentation as to it being a Tom Clancy book. It Wasn't. Wasn't even close to one of his. He just presented two other authors' fiction. The book was ok but it wasn't Tom Clancy

This book is amazing it tells the story of seal team seven, and is written EXTEMELY well. Do not listen to bad reviews, this is by FAR one of the best books I have ever read.

Mr. Couch has already written 3 fascinating works on BUD/S training, SQT, and SEALs at war, but this novel is him at his best. He captures the spirit of the men he has so closely followed for so many years and it shows. This novel is inspiring, humorous, and heartbreaking all at once. From the gunfights to family issues, this novel puts the reader in the boots of an operator and doesn't hestitate to cast a harsh light on the true costs of war and those sent to fight it.

I thought this was an awesome read about Navy Seals and the real story of how they operate. It starts a little slow but turns out to be a real page turner. I can’t wait for the movie to come out on DVD.
