Chuck Pfarrer is a former Assault element Commander of SEAL Team Six, and author of the bestseller Warrior Soul: The Memoir of a Navy Seal.
'A marvelously engrossing account of the military operation that resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden' Kirkus Reviews. 'Richly told in broad, cinematic strokes, this is catnip for readers who enjoy special-ops tales' Kirkus Reviews. 'Chuck Pfarrer writes with the brilliant eye of a novelist and the real-world authority of a soldier who has fought in the world's most mysterious corners. He's not only a poet and soldier, but also a deeply read historian. Pfarrer has written a true page-turner about the inside story of Operation Neptune's Spear. There is enough action here, enough human drama, enough fascinating history, to keep you reading until dawn - you simply have to know what happens next. SEAL Target Geronimo is first-rate storytelling. It's an amazing story, written about a world no one knows better than Chuck Pfarrer himself.' Doug Stanton, author of In Harm's Way and Horse Soldiers.
Drawing upon personal experience, extensive research, and interviews with military personnel, former Navy SEAL Pfarrer charts the events that led SEAL Team Six to assassinate Osama Bin Laden in 2011, traces the origin of the Navy SEALs, and details the training and leadership that ultimately gave SEAL Team Six the skills needed to end a decade-long manhunt. Erik Bergman provides solid narration, reading in a voice that is deep, determined, and slightly raspy-all of which captures the tone of the author's prose and spirit of his subject matter. Bergman's delivery also contains a much-needed note of cordiality, which works to balance the author's assertion that he and other SEALs are a world apart from average Americans.
