Readers will be impressed by the illustrations. Graphical books put some people off as they come across to them as just “comic books.” Code Word: Geronimo will draw the reader in and any thought of “comic book” will disappear quickly.
This is the story of the raid on Osama Bin Laden’s Compound and his demise at the hands of Seal Team 6. History lovers will devour the pages as the story unfolds. This is one event that will be remembered forever for both its importance and relevance to the war on terrorism.
Excellently drawn and with succinct information it provides a combination of history, entertainment and a feeling of being along with the Team on this extremely hazardous mission. Missions the Seals have come to be known for.
The last dozen pages of the book provide a perspective on the operation, Geronimo, NSWDG (Naval Special Warfare Development Group) and a time line of Bin Laden’s life, a person not born into poverty but rather wealth (Written by John M. Del Vecchio).
Less than 100 pages in length but consisting of miles of relevant history, this book is worth your money and your time. So jump on board the chopper and make the trip Seal Team 6 made to Abbottabad.
