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.”
But long before Adam Brown became a member of the elite SEAL Team SIX—the counterterrorism unit that took down Osama bin Laden—there was a fun-loving country boy from 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 parents … until he grew older, and his family watched that appetite for risk draw him into a downward spiral that eventually landed him in jail.
FEARLESS is the story of a man of extremes, whose 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.
FEARLESS is the intimate story of a devoted man who was an unlikely hero but a true warrior, described by all who knew him as just that—fearless.
Chief Special Warfare Operator (SEAL) Adam Brown was a highly decorated combat veteran with numerous awards including the Silver Star Medal, Bronze Star Medal with Valor, Joint Service Commendation Medal with Valor, Purple Heart Medal, Defense Meritorious Service Medal, Joint Service Achievement Medal, Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals (total: 5), Iraq Campaign Medal (Total: 3+), Afghanistan Campaign Medal (Total: 4+), Global War on Terrorism (Service) Medal, Global War on Terrorism (Expeditionary) Medal, Navy Unit Commendation, Combat Action Ribbon (Operation Iraqi Freedom), Combat Action Ribbon (Operation Enduring Freedom), and numerous other personal and (and confidential) unit decorations.
Full of action| Posted September 03, 2013
This is the first book I have read since I have been out of high school and it was amazing. There is action, family values, comedy, real life stugles, and faith based aspects. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone. Even though it is a christian book, it does have some language. This may be the book you can finally get your husband to read. It appeals not only to christians but also the secular world.
Indescribable Life| Posted July 05, 2012
Adam Brown was one crazy, crazy man. One I would've loved to know. He lived a life without fear, he did what he needed to do, and fought for the chance to do over and above what everyone else thought he could do. He beat drugs, and he beat handicaps becoming one of the top Navy Seals.I can't even begin to fathom being remotely like this man. And his wife? Her life was just as crazy, yet she never complained. She stood by his side, and did what she did to help him on his journey. Adam always said her job was harder than his.
The book was so well written and through it I came to feel like I knew Adam and his family. Like I was there. I cried at the end. But even though the book and the life of Adam Brown have ended, his legacy will live on. No question about it. I love the fact that I have a copy of this book, the records the life of such a dedicated, fearless man.
I received this book for the purpose of this review from waterbrook multnomah publishing company.
