Written in an evenkeeled, reportorial style, the book tells a story...that certainly needs to be told.... Guaranteed to raise eyebrows and spark debate.”Booklist

"A good portion of the first half of the book is backstory: a brief synopsis of the SEAL service; the near-impossible-to-endure training of its applicants; short biographies of McCabe and Keefe; and then their assignment to Iraq. It's grist for military buffs, a fun read about HALO jumps and other derring-do shadowed only by the knowledge that brave young men will soon be in the sights of a political bureaucracy.
That portion is both prosaic and powerful. It is, from Robinson's point of view, a "set-up," a chronicle of the dedication and courage and self-discipline a SEAL must endure before he is turned loose on the battlefield. That said, the reader knows that nothing good is going to happen to these two young men because part of the preface to the book includes two letters they sent to Rear Admiral Sean Pybus, U.S. Navy Special Warfare commander, detailing reasons the two resigned from the Navy after being cleared of the charges brought against them.
There's no mystery. The three SEALs operated in an atmosphere where they might be shot or blown to pieces but were hamstrung by rules of engagement set by desk jockeys and then later judged by upper echelons who were far from the sound of the guns.
That they were charged shows the system is flawed. That they were found not guilty shows our flawed system can sometimes right a wrong. "
