Among Heroes: A U.S. Navy Seal's True Story of Friendship, Heroism, and the Ultimate Sacrifice

By Brandon Webb
Navy SEAL sniper and New York Times bestselling author Brandon Webb's personal account of eight of his friends and fellow SEALs who made the ultimate sacrifice.

"Knowing these great men--who they were, how they lived, and what they stood for--has changed my life. We can't let them be forgotten. We've mourned their deaths. Let's celebrate their lives."--Brandon Webb

As a Navy SEAL, Brandon Webb rose to the top of the world's most elite sniper corps, experiencing years of punishing training and combat missions from the Persian Gulf to Afghanistan. Along the way, Webb served beside, trained, and supported men he came to know not just as fellow warriors, but as friends and, eventually, as heroes.

This is his personal account of eight extraordinary SEALs who gave all for their comrades and their country with remarkable valor and abiding humanity: Matt "Axe" Axelson, who perished on Afghanistan's Lone Survivor mission; Chris Campbell, Heath Robinson, and JT Tumilson, who were among the casualties of Extortion 17; Glen Doherty, Webb's best friend, killed while helping secure the successful rescue and extraction of American CIA and State Department diplomats in Benghazi; and other close friends, classmates, and fellow warriors. These are men who left behind powerfully instructive examples of what it means to be alive--and what it truly means to be a hero.
