No Easy Day by Mark Owen and Kevin Maurer (2012)

No Easy Day is a firsthand account of the mission that killed Osama Bin Laden from the point of view of the Navy SEALs who were there. The story begins as the team is about to fast rope down into the Bin Laden compound when the helicopter starts to spin out of control headed for an inevitable crash. Mark Owen then backtracks and describes his entire training from testing to qualify as a Navy SEAL through missions in Iraq and Afghanistan. The story will capture your attention throughout, but especially at the climax as the author retraces every step of the raid that ultimately killed the most notorious terrorist of our time.
