Fearless by Eric Blehm
Books will be written about the Navy Team of Seals, a well trained fighting force we have. Everyone who serves on this force deserves to be counted as an hero
Every once in a while there needs to be an individual picked out to have a special biography written concerning him.
This book puts a face on the program by telling the story of one Navy Seal, Adam Brown. .Adam was a rebel. He was a child who was always turbo drive. There seemed to be no slow drive in his makeup.
His youth was spent in trouble. He got hooked on drugs. He spent time in jail.
It is also the story of a woman who saw in him someone who could be great. She married him and inherited all his problems. With her help, and the help of God, Adam was able to accomplish things..
Adam never set his sights low. He wanted to be a Seal. Given a chance to prove himself he never looked back. He was able to be a great husband and father as well as a great Seal.
On March 17, 2010 he was killed in action.
I am not one to read war stories. In fact I try not to even check out a book on the subject of war. But I do read biographies. This is a well written biography. For those who want to put a face on the war in Afghanistan, this is the book to read. .
I was given this book gratis from the WaterBrook Multinomah Publishing group for this review. I was not required to give a positive review and the views expressed are mine and not those of the publisher.
