Fearless takes you deep into SEAL Team SIX, straight to the heart
of one of its most legendary operators.
When Navy SEAL Adam Brown
woke up on March 17, 2010, he didn’t know he would die that night in the Hindu
Kush Mountains of Afghanistan—but he was ready: In a letter to his children, not
meant to be seen unless the worst happened, he wrote, “I’m not afraid of
anything that might happen to me on this earth, because I know no matter what,
nothing can take my spirit from me.”
Long before Adam Brown became a
member of the elite SEAL Team SIX—the counterterrorism unit that took down Osama
bin Laden—he was a fun-loving country boy from Hot Springs, Arkansas, whose
greatest goal had been to wear his high school’s football jersey. An undersized
daredevil, prone to jumping off roofs into trees and off bridges into lakes,
Adam was a kid who broke his own bones but would never break a promise to his
But after high school, Adam fell in with the wrong crowd, and
his family watched as his appetite for risk dragged him into a downward spiral
that eventually landed him in jail. Battling his inner demons on a last-chance
road to redemption, Adam had one goal: to become the best of the best—a U.S.
An absorbing chronicle of heroism and humanity, Fearless
presents an indelible portrait of a highly trained warrior who would enter a
village with weapons in hand to hunt terrorists, only to come back the next day
with an armload of shoes and meals for local children. It is a deeply personal,
revealing glimpse inside the SEAL Team SIX brotherhood that also shows how these
elite operators live out the rest of their lives, away from danger, as husbands,
fathers, and friends. Fearless is the story of a man of
extremes, whose courage and determination was fueled by faith, family, and the
love of a woman. It’s about a man who waged a war against his own worst impulses
and persevered to reach the top tier of the U.S. military. Always the first to
volunteer for the most dangerous assignments, Adam’s final act of bravery led to
the ultimate sacrifice.
Adam Brown was a devoted man who was an unlikely
hero but a true warrior, described by all who knew him as fearless.
My Reviews: This book is an inspiring story of a young man who had struggles in his life but through God's grace lived an extraordinarylife. The book starts telling Adam's story from the beginning of his life. It starts out somewhat slow but the author is giving you the background of a man's life that shows us how God can work through an ordinary person and use them in a tremendous way. As we all know Adam's life ending too soon but not in vain. This is not the usual military book just about war but one of God's Grace and Mercy at work in an area we might not expect. I recommend this book for everyone to read. God Bless the men and women of the military.
