When the US Navy send their elite, they send the SEALs. When the SEALs send their elite, they send SEAL team six. SEAL team six is one of only two Special Missions Units within the United States special operations force. Focusing on counterterrorism, hostage rescue, and counterinsurgency, it operates outside the parameters of normal military protocol, receiving mission approval direct from the president. And its most recent mission was the kill or capture of the world's most wanted man, Osama Bin Laden. In this dramatic, behind-the-scenes chronicle, former ST6 shooter Howard Wasdin takes readers deep inside the world of Navy SEALS and Special Forces snipers. From descriptions of the grueling selection processes involved in reaching this elite within an elite, to his own terrifying experience in the 'Black Hawk Down' battle in Somalia, Wasdin's book is one of the most explosive military memoirs in years.

The SEAL team in question, founded by the flamboyant Richard Marcinko (see his various books), has recently been renamed but the essence has stayed the same: a special ops elite team within special ops teams. This particular offering is a true memoir, describing the author's life from childhood and theorizing on the personal characteristics that allowed him to make it as a SEAL. His specialty became that of the long-distance sniper; ultimately, he was shot up in the notorious Battle of Mogadishu, Somalia, but survived. Narrator Ray Porter sounds like an international soldier himself, both tough and able to articulate various accents and cadences, so that the characters are distinctive and believable. Verdict Fans of military memoirs will find both the book and presentation compelling. Recommended for students of contemporary military history.
