Eddie Gallagher was the poster boy for the Nay SEALs. He led the Alpha platoon to Mosul in 2017 to help dismantle ISIS. The Navy was going to give him a Silver Star for heroism.
So when Eddie was arrested in 2017 just after returning from Afghanistan, a different story began to emerge about who this SEAL icon really was. David Philipps’ compelling book sheds light on the courage of the SEALs who risked their careers and lives to tell the truth about Gallagher’s mismanagement, disregard for the safety of his men, and desire to kill the “enemy” at any cost.
The battle that ensued over the truth about who Eddie Gallagher really was and what the SEAL teams truly stand for would reverberate for years.
