Bestselling U.S. Navy-based nobels, most notably, Nimitz Class, Kilo-Class, and Seawolf
Autobiography Admiral sir Sandy Woodward, One hundred days, was international bestseller
In the book, the persistent, surviving seal (Marcus Luttrell) is actually aided by an Afghan village, as determined by a 2,000 year old tradition called Pashtunwali , which compelled them to protect outsiders against there enemy at all costs. This represents the best of humanity and the willingness to be human, to adhere to moral values despite unimaginable odds, as the Afhgan villagers demonstrated when they defended Marcus from the Taliban forces.
Morality plays a big role when the Seal Team is confronted with a situation in which they can either choose to end several prisoners lives or allow them to escape; Seal Team 10 let the prisoners go, knowing full well that their release would result in over a hundred Taliban soldiers attacking them.This problem encapsulates war morality in general, showing that wartime situations aren’t clear cut, and that despite the near certainty of death, these Seals chose the moral high ground.
Dietz was born on January 26, 1980 in Aurora, Colorado
the son of Danny Phillip, Sr. and Cindy Dietz
the brother of Tiffany Bitz and Eric Dietz
He spent much of his life in Littleton, Colorado and was a 1999 graduate of Heritage High School.
He earned a black belt in Taekwondo from the Korean Academy of Taekwondo.
Dietz enlisted in the U.S. Navy on August 31, 1999.
Following his graduating from Recruit Training Command, Naval Station Great Lakes, on November 27, 1999, he completed Gunner's Mate "A" School at the Naval Air Technical Training Center in Pensacola, Florida.
From there he transferred to Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL training and graduated with Class 232 in 2001.
Immediately upon checking in at SEAL Delivery Vehicle Team 2 in Virginia Beach, Virginia, on November 8, 2001, he was assigned to Task Unit Bravo as the secondary SDV pilot and the Ordnance and Engineering Department head.
In April 2005, Dietz deployed with his Special Reconnaissance element to Afghanistan to support Naval Special Warfare Squadron TEN in the prosecution of the Global War on Terrorism.
Luttrell enlisted in the United States Navy in March 1999.
After graduating bootcamp and Hospital Corpsman A-school, he transferred to Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) Class 226; however, due to a fractured femur he suffered on the obstacle course, he graduated with Class 228 on April 21, 2000.
After completing BUD/S, he attended Army jump school and SEAL Qualification Training.
He was then sent to Fort Bragg in North Carolina, for SOCM (Special Operations Combat Medic Course) an additional six months of advanced training in conventional and unconventional medical skills, ranging from diagnosis and treatment of many conditions to advanced emergency medicine and battlefield life support.
He was deployed to Afghanistan in 2005 with SEAL Team Ten.
Prior to Afghanistan, Luttrell had been part of SDV-1. After Operation Red Wings he transferred to SEAL Team Five and deployed to Ramadi during Operation Iraqi Freedom conducting various operations there.
Marcus Luttrell, Michael P. Murphy, Matthew 'Axe' Axelson, and Danny Dietz portray the love and dedication that all soldiers feel for each other. The most highly respected portion of the unwritten Seal creed is to never leave a man behind, no matter the personal cost; Luttrell wrote again and again, “Leave no man behind”. In and out of combat, it is evident that the bond between team members is incomprehensible to the general public. For example, when Axe sacrificed his life to contact backup, their fellow Seals left without hesitation, literally sprinting to the carrier.
Style of Book
The book was written in first person from Marcus' point of view. There were times when he addressed the reader directly with comments such as "trust me." Throughout the book the reader understands what the mission was, how dangerous it was, what it took to become a Navy SEAL, and what the political situation on the battlefield is really like. Warding off prejudice.
Style of Book
throughout the whole book Luttrell uses figurative language to perceive the style of the book.
He uses a whole bunch of military jargen
He also uses similes and metaphors
Some of the examples are "Battling in Afghan is like battling in hell" and "My weapon is my tool for life."
Also in the book he puts upon a whole lot of suspense, making the reader not know whats next in the book.
“Service is selflessness--the opposite of the lifestyle that we see so much of in America today. The things that entertain us don't often lift us up, or show us as the people we can rise up to become. The people who appear in this book--and others who did things I can't talk about--are my role models. They quietly live out the idea expressed in the Bible (John 15:13): "Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
Lost all his friends: Michael P. Murphy, Matthew 'Axe' Axelson, Danny Dietz, Shane Patton, Eric Kristensen, Dan Healy and many others.
Marcus suffered multiple injuries such as a blowned out knees, cracked pelvis, back related injuries, torn shoulder, broken nose, a cracked femur, and gunshot wounds.----"
“Remember the philosophy of the U.S. Navy SEALs: “I will never quit...My Nation expects me to be physically harder and mentally stronger than my enemies. If knocked down, I will get back up, every time. I will draw on every remaining ounce of strength to protect my teammates...I am never out of the fight.”
“We've trained and trained for a reason: to be better at the craft of war than our enemy, to use our skill to perform the mission, and to accept the risks. As American warriors, it's our obligation to protect the innocent"
“Brave men fought and died building a reputation I uphold.”
“We all have our crosses to bear. We carry them heavily, out of love for our brothers in arms."
"If you can take Hell Week and beat it, you can do damn near anything in the world."
"Something kept whispering in the back of my mind, it would be wrong to execute these unarmed men in cold blood. And the idea of doing that and then covering our tracks and slinking away like criminals, denying everything, would make it more wrong."
“The SEALs place a premium on brute strength, but there's an even bigger premium on speed. That's speed through the water, speed over the ground, and speed of thought. There's no prizes for gleaming a set of well-oiled muscles in Coronado. Bulk just makes you slow, especially in soft sand, and that's what we had to tackle every day of our lives, mile after mile.”
