Fearless: The Undaunted Courage and Ultimate Sacrifice of Navy SEAL Team SIX Operator Adam Brown is the riveting true story of one of the US military's most legendary warriors.
SEAL Team SIX member Adam Brown did not know that he would die on March 17, 2010, in the mountains of Afghanistan—but he was prepared: In a letter to his family, only meant to be read if he did not survive, he wrote, "I'm not afraid of anything that might happen to me on this earth, because I know no matter what, nothing can take my spirit from me."
Long before becoming a Navy SEAL, Adam Brown grew up in Hot Springs, Arkansas, where his greatest ambition was to play high school football. Adam was a daredevil, known for diving from bridges into lakes and leaping from rooftops into trees. He suffered broken bones, but never broke a promise to his parents.
After high school, Adam's love of risk drew him to the wrong crowd, and he fell into a downward spiral, eventually winding up in jail. As he battled his own worst impulses and searched for redemption, Adam had a new ambition: to become an elite US Navy SEAL.
A compelling story of humanity and heroism, Fearless is an unforgettable biography of a highly trained soldier who would arrive at a village with gun in hand hunting terrorists, only to return the next day bearing gifts of food and shoes for the local children. It is a revealing, deeply personal glimpse inside the brotherhood of SEAL Team SIX that also shows how these elite warriors live their lives at home, as fathers, husbands and friends.
Fearless is the tale of an intense man, who drew his determination and courage from family, faith, and his wife's love. It's the story of a man who conquered his own inner demons and struggled against staggering odds to reach the upper echelon of the US military. Always eager to volunteer for even the most dangerous missions, Adam made the ultimate sacrifice for his country with his final act of bravery.
Adam Brown was an unlikely hero, but a devoted man and a brave warrior, remembered by those who knew him as Fearless.

When Navy SEAL Adam Brown woke up on March 17, 2010, he didn't know he would die that night in the Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan - but he was ready: In a letter to his children, not meant to be seen unless the worst happened, he wrote, I'm not afraid of anything that might happen to me on this earth, because I know no matter what, nothing can take my spirit from me.
Long before Adam Brown became a member of the elite SEAL Team SIX - the counterterrorism unit that took down Osama bin Laden - he was a fun-loving country boy from Hot Springs, Arkansas, whose greatest goal had been to wear his high school's football jersey.
