"[A]n intimate account of Owen's most personally meaningful missions, missions that never made headlines, including the moments in which he learned the most about himself and his teammates in both success and failure. "I want No Hero to offer something most books on war don't: the intimate side of it, the personal struggles and hardships and what I learned from them," says Owen. "The stories in No Hero are a testament to my teammates and to all the other active and former SEALs who have dedicated their lives to freedom. In our community, we are constantly taught to mentor the younger generation and to pass the lessons and values we've learned on to others so that they can do the same for the guys coming up after them. This is what I hope I have done for readers of No Hero." Every bit as action-packed as No Easy Day, and featuring stories from the training ground to the battlefield, No Hero offers readers a never-before-seen close-up view of the experiences and values that make Mark Owen and the SEALs he served with capable of executing the missions we read about in the headlines" -- from publisher's web site.
Recounts definitive moments from the author's career as a Navy SEAL, discussing the missions that had the greatest personal meaning for him and explaining the lessons and values he hopes to pass on to the next generation.

No Hero is the prequel to No Easy Day, showing Owen's progression from a young kid in Alaska to the very top of Devgru. Owen charts his path from deciding he wanted to be a SEAL to his decision to leave, as well as countering some of the flak he's taken for writing No Easy Day. Not as fast-paced, or as exciting, as No Easy Day this book is more in-depth look at what Devgru does, and did. Yet this is still a good book, and a valuable one to learn more about Devgru, something that got Owen into trouble for writing No Easy Day. No Hero will be a valuable book to learn from for years to come.
