Overview

Navy Seal Team Six: The Killing of Bin Laden by Wesley Mallnow

Osama bin Laden, head of the Islamist militant group al-Qaeda, was killed in Pakistan on May 2, 2011, shortly after 1 a.m. local time by a United States special forces military unit. The operation, code-named Operation Neptune Spear, was ordered by United States President Barack Obama and carried out in a U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operation by a team of United States Navy SEALs from the United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group (also known as DEVGRU or informally by its former name, SEAL Team Six) of the Joint Special Operations Command, with support from CIA operatives on the ground. The raid on bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan was launched from Afghanistan. After the raid, U.S. forces took bin Laden's body to Afghanistan for identification, then buried it at sea within 24 hours of his death.

This book is not worth more than two dollars. It is not even a book. It is more like report for a sophomore term paper. I regret buying it!

If you want to know exactly what happened the day bin laden was killed this book is a great buy. Also this is a great supplement for those longer fiction seal team six books.
