the book isn't really about Fukushima, this book is more about the state of nuclear safety and regulation in the US, seens more like a Fukushima was just used as an example.

if the book title was Fukushima: the state of nuclear safety in the us after Fukushima I would rate more

The definitive book on the events of the shooting

when a book is so well written and and thought out, that you can't put it down.

this book reads like a documentary, the author has done all his research.He had a well thought out book, from beginning to end. the side story's the aftermath, the victims and there family's, it's all in there.

the narrator has done a great job. his voice rises and falls and quicken given the effect of time, and horror.


I would recommend this book!

I couldn't put this book down, so to speak
if you are interested in milltary history I highly recommend this. The lengths the author must of gone though to produce such thoughtful work in both honouring the men and their story.

It's written well, intertwining the storys together to produce a easy read must of been a huge undertaking, but has been pulled off. This has become one of the best I've read!

Really great book!

Enjoyed it all the way though, kept it interesting funny and in-depth with technical and military information.

His point is well put across about PTS and what himself and his men had to deal with, recommended if you enjoy military history/memoirs.

The narrator isn't bad,.does a great job in fact. But always want the author to read it, I feel they bring the tone in correctly and something extra.

great read but...

the book is both gripping and funny, it will make you smirk. but at the start I had to get use to the writing style, sounded like a Rick Hall joke.

but it is a great read, if you read other navy seal books it's worth a read and a lot better than some. but not the best also unabridged and read by the author!

great read/listen

great read/listen, well written and read by the narrator. The book chronicles the birth, use, operation and legacy of the SAS during World war two.

there are three more books that come to mind similar to this, but by no means the same. Damian Lewis Nazi hunters which is an account in great detail of op luton and the hunt for war criminals

The phantom Mayor, solely about David Sterling and how the SAS came about and there operations.

I think the third is also a Damian Lewis book, Churchill secret warriors I believe, about anders lassen the SBS solider awarded the VC

I don't know if it was the writing style or the narrators perception of the tone of voice but this wasn't a good listen/read.

First of all, It felt abridged and I had to check, because the author left out a few deployment and other parts and went straight in to the 2nd or 3rd deployment, which was frustration. You want to know why he thinks the way he does from previous encounters.

Second was the author bringing up being a medic and a SEAL constantly. I feel like he should of known the two conflicts and dealt with it, instead everything other line ( it felt like was the self conflict of his roles) was about just this and for that reason it wasn't engaging

having said all this I'm Greatful he put it on paper.

abridged wait for the unabridged version, you loose so much of the story, I've read the book in full and this version does it no justice, to the Men or Author

Great book, has some great detail, It show you how gritty this battle was in some places.



Gives you the side of the men that had to assault the city after they (insurgents) had time to prepare, tells you about command and higher ups that failed the Marines that paid dearly for there inaction. If your into war books with information and first had accounts this is a great listen.
