Dutton to publish book by Navy Seal about bin Laden mission
Get ready for a guessing game equivalent to "Who Wrote 'Primary Colors'?"
Dutton, an imprint of Penguin publishers, is set to publish a book written by one of the Navy SEALs in the raid at Abbottabad, Pakistan, that killed Osama Bin Laden.
The author, pseudonymously known as "Mark Owen," completed 13 consecutive deployments during the War on Terror. He is a former member of the U.S. Special Warfare Development Group (Seal Team Six), and led one of the assault teams in "Operation Neptune Spear" that killed Bin Laden, according to the publisher.
The book, "No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission that Killed Osama Bin Laden," will be published on Sept. 11 and will be co-authored by military journalist and "Lions of Kandahar" author Kevin Maurer.
Owens' name and those of his colleagues were changed for their protection, according to Dutton.
