Castle of Glass - Lone Survivor

Post by jfko6 » Fri Jan 19, 2018 2:01 pm

In Afghanistan, Taliban leader Ahmad Shah is responsible for killing over twenty United States Marines, as well as villagers and refugees who were aiding American forces. In response to these killings, the United States Navy SEALs are assigned to perform a counter-insurgent mission to capture Shah. As part of the mission, a four-man SEAL reconnaissance and surveillance team is tasked to track Shah's whereabouts. The four SEAL teammates are team leader Michael P. "Murph" Murphy; hospital corpsman and sniper Marcus Luttrell; sonar technician Matthew "Axe" Axelson; and communications specialist Danny Dietz.

Thanks for the post. I DID read the book. And its recommended. You'll read about the differences but won't give it away. A big take away from the book though which your lenses should discriminate is the Rules of WarEnagagment and how that changed over the decades to somewhat of a tactical disadvantage to the modern warfighter.

In sum, the book is totally different. It's not a close script like the film The Final Countdown. In that book the book was larger than the film. The script writers condensed it to fit the big screen but followed the book pretty closely.
