Description :  <b><i><b><i>New York Times</i>&#xa0;bestseller</b><br /><br />Fearless </i>takes you deep into SEAL Team SIX, straight to the heart of one of its most legendary operators.</b><br />&#xa0;<br />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.”<br />&#xa0;<br />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<br />promise to his parents.<br />&#xa0;<br />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. Navy SEAL.<br />&#xa0;<br />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.<br /><i>&#xa0;</i><br /><i>Fearless </i>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.<br />&#xa0;<br />Adam Brown was a devoted man who was an unlikely hero but a true warrior, described by all who knew him as <i>fearless</i>.

Description :  <b>The true story of the U.S. Army’s 240th Assault Helicopter Company and a Green Beret Staff Sergeant's heroic mission to rescue a Special Forces team trapped behind enemy lines during the Vietnam War, from <i><b>New York Times</b></i><b> bestselling author Eric Blehm.&#xa0; </b></b><br /><br />On May 2, 1968, a twelve-man Special Forces team covertly infiltrated a small clearing in the jungles of neutral Cambodia—where U.S. forces were forbidden to operate. Their objective, just miles over the Vietnam border, was to collect evidence that proved the North Vietnamese Army was using the Cambodian sanctuary as a major conduit for supplying troops and materiel to the south via the Ho Chi Minh Trail. What the team didn’t know was that they had infiltrated a section of jungle that concealed a major enemy base. Soon they found themselves surrounded by hundreds of NVA, under attack, low on ammunition, stacking the bodies of the dead as cover in a desperate attempt to survive the onslaught.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> When Special Forces Staff Sergeant Roy Benavidez heard their distress call, he jumped aboard the next helicopter bound for the combat zone. What followed would become legend in the Special Operations community. Flown into the foray of battle by the 240th Assault Helicopter Company, Benavidez jumped from the hovering aircraft, ran nearly 100 yards through withering enemy fire, and--despite being immediately and severely wounded--organized an extraordinary defense and rescue of the Special Forces team.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> Written with extensive access to family members, surviving members of the 240th Assault Helicopter Company, on-the-ground eye-witness accounts never before published, as well as recently discovered archival, and declassified military records, Blehm has created a riveting narrative both of Roy Benavidez’s life and career, and of the inspiring, almost unbelievable events that defined the brotherhood of the air and ground warriors in an unpopular war halfway around the world. <i>Legend</i> recounts the courage and commitment of those who fought in Vietnam in service of their country, and the story of one of the many unsung heroes of the war.

Description :  Adam Brown – jeden z najlepszych żołnierzy Navy SealsCzłowiek, który z miłości do żony i kraju dźwignął się z dna i stał się bohateremPoruszająca historia żołnierza Navy Seals, najbardziej elitarnej jednostki wojskowej na świecie, który zginął podczas akcji w Afganistanie w 2010 roku. To nakreślony przez jego bliskich i towarzyszy broni niezwykły obraz człowieka, który – zanim stał się jednym z najlepszych żołnierzy na świecie – stoczył najtrudniejszą walkę w swoim życiu: walkę z uzależnieniem od narkotyków.Towarzysze broni mówili o nim, że był bohaterem w całym tego słowa znaczeniu. Jego odwaga, oddanie i wsparcie, jakiego udzielał innym oraz umiejętności sprawiły, że pozwolono mu służyć w jednostkach szturmowych nawet wtedy, kiedy widział już tylko na jedno oko, a jego ręka nie była do końca sprawna po zmiażdżeniu. Przeznaczano go do najtrudniejszych akcji, szukał m.in. Osamy Bin Ladena. Zginął podczas niemal samobójczej akcji likwidowania jednego z talibskich przywódców. Niedługo przed śmiercią – jakby przeczuwając, co może się stać – napisał wzruszający list do swoich dzieci.Adam Brown&#xa0;zapisał się bardzo dobrze także w pamięci polskich GROM-owców, z którymi dane mu było wspólnie służyć. Jego nazwisko wpisali do Memoriału Fundacji SPRZYMIERZENI z GROM.
