Summary

From their birth in World War II as combat swimmers clearing the beaches of Normandy to their evolution into fighting men who could operate anywhere in the world by sea, air, or land, the intrepid story of the United States Navy SEALs is one of courage, sacrifice, and world-renowned toughness that echoes of other great military units of history - the Spartans, the Roman legions, or the samurai. Take a look inside to find out what makes the SEALs America's deadliest warriors.

Mann and Burton take the listener through the inception of the Naval Combat Demolition Teams (NCDU) and Underwater Demolition Teams (UDT) during World War II, their testing and development in Korea and into the Vietnam War, where the SEALs truly laid the groundwork for their legendary status, and on into the present day. The authors highlight the major steps and operations along the way, discuss the training and what it takes, and explore some of the most important moments in SEAL history.

SEALs Explained

Great narrative by Robertson Dean as always on the secretive world of the Navy Seals. Don't expect any secrets to be divulged but understand the ethos of the SEALS development, training, service honours and an overview of past and recent operations.

a waste of time...

It is rare that I give a book a poor review. However, this book deserves it. nothing new, different, or exciting that has not already been written about before and a much better fashion. A weak ass effort. I feel like the authors we're just looking for a pay day of some sort. I've lost time, money, and respect for Don Mann.
