Description

Shortly after midnight on May 2, 2011, two large helicopters swooped down on a home in Abbottabad, a small city in northern Pakistan. As the helicopters reached the ground, a group of American fighters spilled out. Soon, loud blasts filled the air as the commandos-all members of a group known as the Navy SEALs-blew apart walls and doors and shot their way in. The SEALs were looking for the world's most wanted terrorist, Osama bin Laden. The secret raid was risky, but if anyone could carry out the mission successfully, it was the Navy SEALs. Members of this special operations force are among the best-trained fighters in the world. Young readers will follow this elite group of soldiers on their raid and explore the context for their mission, from the 9/11 attacks by Al Qaeda to the war against terrorists in Afghanistan. Large, full-color photos, grade-appropriate text, and a narrative format will keep kids turning the pages as they learn about our nation's military heroes.
