Told through the eyes of current and former Navy SEALs, EYES ON TARGET is an inside account of some of the most harrowing missions in American history-including the mission to kill Osama bin Laden and the mission that wasn't, the deadly attack on the US diplomatic outpost in Benghazi where a retired SEAL sniper with a small team held off one hundred terrorists while his repeated radio calls for help went unheeded.

The book contains incredible accounts of major SEAL operations-from the violent birth of SEAL Team Six and the aborted Operation Eagle Claw meant to save the hostages in Iran, to key missions in Iraq and Afganistan where the SEALs suffered their worst losses in their fifty year history-and every chapter illustrates why this elite military special operations unit remains the most feared anti-terrorist force in the world.

We hear reports on the record from retired SEAL officers including Lt. Cmdr. Richard Marcinko, the founder of SEAL Team Six, and a former Commander at SEAL team Six, Ryan Zinke, and we come away understanding the deep commitment of these military men who put themselves in danger to protect our country and save American lives. In the face of insurmountable odds and the imminent threat of death, they give all to protect those who cannot protect themselves.

No matter the situation, on duty or at ease, SEALs never, ever give up. One powerful chapter in the book tells the story of how one Medal of Honor winner saved another, the only time this has been done in US military history.

EYES ON TARGET includes these special features:
A detailed timeline of events during the Benghazi attack Sample rescue scenarios from a military expert who believes that help could have reached the Benghazi compound in time The US House Republican Conference Interim Progress Report on the events surrounding the September 11, 2012 Terrorist Attacks in Benghazi Through their many interviews and unique access, Scott McEwen and Richard Miniter pull back the veil that has so often concealed the heroism of these patriots. They live by a stringent and demanding code of their own creation, keeping them ready to ignore politics, bureaucracy and-if necessary-direct orders. They share a unique combination of character, intelligence, courage, love of country and what can only be called true grit.

They are the Navy SEALs, and they keep their Eyes on Target.
A frontline witness account of the deadly urban combat of the Battle of Mosul told by former Navy SEAL and frontline combat medic Ephraim Mattos.
After leaving the US Navy SEAL teams in spring of 2017, Ephraim Mattos, age twenty-four, flew to Iraq to join a small group of volunteer humanitarians known as the Free Burma Rangers, who were working on the frontlines of the war on ISIS.
Until being shot by ISIS on a suicidal rescue mission, Mattos witnessed unexplainable acts of courage and sacrifice by the Free Burma Rangers, who, while under heavy machine gun and mortar fire, assaulted across ISIS minefields, used themselves as human shields, and sprinted down ISIS-infested streets-all to retrieve wounded civilians.
In City of Death: Humanitarian Warriors in the Battle of Mosul, Mattos recounts in vivid detail what he saw and felt while he and the other Free Burma Rangers evacuated the wounded, conducted rescue missions, and at times fought shoulder-to-shoulder with the Iraqi Army against ISIS. Filled with raw and emotional descriptions of what it's like to come face-to-face with death, this is the harrowing and uplifting true story of a small group of men who risked everything to save the lives of the Iraqi people and who followed the credence, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
As the coauthor of the #1 New York Times bestselling American Sniper, Scott McEwen has teamed up with Mattos to help share an unforgettable tale of an American warrior turned humanitarian forced to fight his way into and out of a Hell on Earth created by ISIS.
The second book in the Camp Valor series by the #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of American Sniper.

When a drone explodes at a crowded high school basketball championship, unleashing a mysterious chemical, a riot ensues, leaving fans dead. The gas is revealed to be a vaporized cocktail of hormones and neurotransmitter chemicals, which have the ability to trigger horrific and seemingly unstoppable acts of violence by otherwise non-aggressive participants. Over the anonymous Tor browser—the gateway to the darknet—the Encyte network claims credit for the attack. A series of similar violent outbreaks follow, terrorizing the public. When everyone is a weapon, no one is safe.

Using spyware technology, a reclusive billionaire and Camp Valor alum develops a theory about the leader of the Encyte network's identity. Camp Valor is given the summer to stop the violence. Wyatt Brewer, who is living in hiding with his family after taking down Glowworm Gaming the previous summer, wants no part of the mission or of Valor. It’s not until the violence is linked to a video game created by Glowworm Gaming that Wyatt acquiesces, agreeing to return to the camp for another summer, with one condition: He will not kill.

Wyatt searches to find the Encyte network, and to reconcile the kind of young man he thought he wanted to be with his true nature. As Wyatt and his section zero-in on what they believe is their target, Wyatt has a terrifying realization. What if they themselves are being used by their faceless enemy as a weapon?

V letech 1999 až 2009 zaznamenal Chris Kyle z jednotky amerického námořnictva SEAL nejvíce odstřelovačských zásahů v dějinách USA. Nepřátelé mu přezdívali „Ďábel“, spolubojovníci ze SEALu „Legenda“.  Tato autobiografická kniha líčí strhujícím způsobem bojové zážitky, které Kyle na jednotlivých misích prožil a představuje jeden z nejvýznamnějších válečných memoárů všech dob.  Přináší osobní zpověď vojáka od jeho výcviku přes jednotlivá nasazení až po traumata z války.  „Chris Kyle dokázal vyniknout i v elitní společnosti bojovníků SEALu. Špičkový odstřelovač Kyle udělal a viděl věci, o kterých se bude mluvit ještě dlouho, nejen mezi americkými vojáky, ale i mezi těmi,  kdo v boji stáli proti nám a na vlastní kůži pocítili efektivitu nejúspěšnějšího odstřelovače světa.“  Marcus Luttrell, bývalý SEAL, nositel Kříže námořnictva za mimořádné hrdinství v boji, autor bestselleru Lone Survivor „Drsný a nezapomenutelný příběh o zrodu nejúspěšnějšího odstřelovače Ameriky. Vzpomínky Chrise Kylea jsou sugestivní knihou, ať už jde o bojové akce nebo lidské drama. Velitel Chris Kyle je skutečný americký bojovník,  Carlos Hathcock nové generace.“  Charles W. Sasser, bývalý příslušník Zelených baretů a autor knihy One Shot, One Kill  „Americký odstřelovač je klasický příběh o válce. Statečný bojovník a vlastenec Chris Kyle píše o válce, o osobních problémech a dilematech, která jsou denním chlebem elitního odstřelovače SEALu.  Jinými slovy – co střela, to zásah!“  Richard Marcinko, bývalý velící důstojník oddílu SEAL č. 6, autor bestselleru Rogue Warrior
Samowolna i brawurowa akcja Seals.

Nowa książka współautora bestsellerowego i rewelacyjnie zekranizowanego Snajpera Chrisa Kyla.

„Czterech pozostałych przy życiu rangersów nadal znajdowało się po drugiej stronie wioski, prawie sto metrów od śmigłowca. Biegli, ile sił w nogach w jego kierunku, a tymczasem Sandra włączyła przełączniki w kokpicie i wirniki zaczęły się obracać.
– Będziemy w powietrzu za sześćdziesiąt sekund.
– Nie mamy sześćdziesięciu...!
Pocisk moździerzowy uderzył w ogon śmigłowca, unosząc tylną część maszyny w powietrze i sprawiając, że zaczęła gwałtownie wirować wokół własnej osi. Mitchell roztrzaskał sobie głowę, gdy cisnęło nim o przegrodę, a Sandra została wyrzucona z fotela pilota na drugą stronę kokpitu. Zewsząd rozlegały się odgłosy strzałów karabinowych”.
[fragment powieści]

Po ataku talibów chorąży Sandra Brux, jedyna kobieta pilot w elitarnej formacji „Nocnych Łowców”, trafia do niewoli. Egzekucja pilotki byłaby ogromną kompromitacją amerykańskiej armii, a krwawe zdjęcia z pewnością obiegłyby media na całym świecie. Dla dowództwa najważniejsze staje się uniknięcie skandalu...
Do akcji CIA angażuje strzelca wyborowego Gila Shannona z SEAL Team Six. Snajper obiecuje żonie, że wróci do domu żywy, a przełożonym, że ocali Sandrę, być może nawet za cenę utraty honoru amerykańskiego wojownika w samowolnej i brawurowej operacji.
Książka oparta na relacji z prawdziwych tajnych operacji o których SEALsi nie mogą oficjalnie opowiedzieć.
