Texan recounts special forces tragedy in Afghanistan.

Excerpt from book review:

"The Battle of Murphy's Ridge, June 28, 2005, was among the most tragic days in U.S. special operations history, and only Texan Marcus Luttrell lived to talk about it.

His memoir, Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10, recounts how he and three other Navy SEALs were dropped on a mountainside in the rural Hindu Kush in eastern Afghanistan to carry out a reconnaissance mission and, if possible, assassinate Taliban warlord Ben Sharmak."
