Product description

Review

"A jaw-dropping, fast-paced account."
--New York Post

"A riveting, unvarnished and wholly unforgettable portrait of America's most storied commandos at war."
--Joby Warrick, author of Black Flags: The Rise of ISIS, winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction

"Along the way, the reader learns much about the elite force the nation relies on to undertake often-dangerous covert missions . . . O'Neill, the author, exhibits skills in blending humor with pathos [as he describes] the intricacies of becoming a SEAL and relating the toll a SEAL's life takes on his family."
--Buffalo News

"Harrowing . . . In frank and vivid detail and blunt and plain language, Mr. O'Neill describes some of the 400 counterterrorism operations and close quarter combat he experienced in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere through his career as a SEAL . . . An interesting and insightful book about some of the most historic moments in modern American military history."
--Washington Times

"Leaves a lump in the reader's throat . . . The Operator is really a book about life."
--Montana Standard

"O'Neill absorbingly relates the 2011 attack on bin Laden's Pakistan compound . . . [Other] fascinating stories include his role in the successful 2009 mission to free Capt. Richard Phillips from Somali pirates, and those of too many fellow SEALs who were killed in battle. Fans of battlefield narratives, such as Michael Golembesky's Level Zero Heroes, will relish this gripping perspective on 21st-century warfare."
--Library Journal
