Book Bucket List | No Easy Day

The film Zero Dark Thirty is killing it at the box office right now.  It will probably win a million Academy Awards, (Go Jessica Chastain!) and is called one of the most controversial movies ever made.  The film is based on the true story of the CIA agent that ultimately found the compound that was housing "UBL".

The book No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission that Killed Osama Bin Laden not only covers that same final mission, but all the others that came before it.  Seal Team Six member Mark Owen gives a detailed account of his experiences as a Navy Seal in a post 9/11 world. His memoir is a rare first hand account of highly publicized events and missions that no one ever knew about.  If you have any interest in current events, this is a must read and should certainly be added to your book bucket list!
