About the Author:
Kevin Maurer co-wrote No Easy Day, the best selling account of the raid to kill Osama bin Laden. The book spent several weeks at #1 on the New York Times best seller list. Maurer is an award winning journalist and author of several book-length works of nonfiction.
About the Books:
The hunt for Ernesto “Che” Guevera was one of the first successful U.S. Special Forces missions in history. Using government reports and documents, as well as eyewitness accounts, Hunting Che tells the untold story of how the infamous revolutionary was captured—a mission later duplicated in Afghanistan and Iraq.
While Kenin Maurer and Mark Owen’s instant New York Times bestseller No Easy Day focused on the high-profile targets and headline-grabbing chapters of the author’s career, No Hero will be an account of the most personally meaningful missions from Owen’s thirteen years as a SEAL, including the moments in which he learned the most about himself and his teammates, in both success and failure.
