Fearless by Eric Blehm

Fearless by Eric Blehm is a book about the life of Adam Brown.  Who may you ask is Adam Brown and why should I read a book about him you may ask.  Well Adam Brown was a Navy Seal and that alone tells you that he is a courageous man of valor.  A strong man who doesn't back down when the chips are against you.  A man who will defend his country and countrymen against enemies both foreign and domestic.  But reading this book will tell you about the real man and men of the Navy Seals.  This book will introduce the reader to the men behind the legends.  This book tells the story of Adam's life.  His relationship with his parents and how he was raised to be this Christian man of valor as well as a man of values. This book tells the dirt on Adam of his dark years of drug addiction and his battle to stay clean and sober.   This book tells the love story of one man and his wife and his devotion to his children though he was away from them often in the line of duty for his country.  This book tells the story of Adam Brown's life from childhood to and through the end of his life at the hands of the Taliban.  It tells how a man of honor lives his life and how the families of these men go on to live life after they are taken from us.  Adam Brown was a hero though he would never say that about himself--a selfless hero.

To say that I loved this book would be an understatement.  This book was hard to read because from the first page the reader is aware that Adam dies at the end.  In fact towards the end the book starts to prepare the reader for the final days of Adam.  I had a hard time starting that part of the book and delayed reading it for several days.   The end of the book was read through tears.  This is just the best book and needs to be read by any American to understand the sacrifice that our Armed services give for the freedoms that all American's enjoy.  Please read this book and thank you Eric Blehm for writing it.
This book was provided by Waterbrook Press for this review.
