No Easy Day. The Firtshand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama bin Laden - Mark Owen

Workmanlike account of the famous mission, with a great deal of background of this specific operator. Seems as though they couldn't decide if this was about Neptune Spear or the life story of the narrator, "Mark Owen". I will say that the mission itself was presented very well, with diagrams, and was quite informative. Well worth reading if you're interested in the subject, but I don't think this will be read 50 years from now.
