Descripción

For fans of the New York Times best sellers The Last Punisher and Lone Survivor, a heart-pounding military memoir from a former Army Ranger sniper and Special Operations weapon sergeant turned journalist about the incredible highs and devastating lows of his career.

Growing up in small New York towns, Jack Murphy knew he wanted to lead a life far from the ordinary — a life of adventure and valor. After the 9/11 attacks, he immediately enlisted in the Army, knowing this was his chance to live the life he desired and fight for a cause he staunchly supported. After making it through the rigorous Ranger Indoctrination Program, he graduated sniper school and was promptly deployed to Afghanistan, where his experiences went from ordinary to extraordinary.

In this gripping military memoir, Murphy recounts the multiple missions he underwent as a Ranger, a Special Forces weapons sergeant, and ultimately, a boots-on-the-ground journalist. From enemy ambushes, dodging explosives, crashing terrorists’ weddings, and landing helicopters in the streets of Mosul, Jack provides a hard-hitting glimpse of what combat is like in some of the world’s most dangerous, war-torn places. With tours of duty in two of the most decorated units of the armed forces, Murphy brings a unique perspective to the military genre as he reflects on his great triumphs and shattering failures both on and off the battlefield.

Later, Murphy turned his attention to breaking news within the military. His stories have taken him from Iraq to Switzerland, from Syria to South Korea. From crossing Middle Eastern borders in the dead of night to rolling into an IED-laden zone, Murphy’s stories are always a thrill a minute.

Murphy’s Law tells a story of intense bravery and sacrifice — both on and off the battlefield.

  • (5/5)
    I really enjoyed the book. I found his story too be both very entertaining as well as enlightening. With the book bring read by the author it felt more as a conversation, like he was with me telling me the stories, more than it felt like a book.

    Very good story, he didn’t try glorifying the war, or his part in it.
  • (5/5)
    Love that it was read by the author. Loved that he told about his screw ups. That is hard to do. So many of these books are about all the things the solider, sniper, or seal did right. It would have been hard for me to tell a story about me committing friendly fire. But it’s the truth and in the military 95% of shit is not winning an award or getting the target you are after! Thank you for your service and writing a great book!
