Product description

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.

Review quote

Praise for "SEAL Team Six" "Mr. Wasdin's narrative is visceral and as active as a Tom Clancy novel...[it] will also leave readers with a new appreciation of the training that enabled Seal Team Six to pull off the bin Laden raid with such precision...adrenaline-laced." --"The New York Times"""SEAL Team Six" pulses with the grit of a Jerry Bruckheimer production...On his journey to becoming a member of the Navy's best of the best, Wasdin proved his mettle in Operation Desert Storm and endured training that would break the back of most mortal men." --"The Washington Post""["SEAL Team Six"] describes the harrowing ops he undertook as part of the elite Seal Team Six squadron, including the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu that almost killed him....reveals an intimate look at the rigorous training and perilous missions of the best of the Navy's best." --"Time"""SEAL Team Six "is a masterful blend of one man's--"Waz-Man's--"journey from hard knocks to hard corps. Even better, Waz-Man and Templin can actually write as good as they can shoot. They capture your attention at every turn--not knowing if you're about to take a bullet to the head from a SEAL sniper or get hit in the gut with a punch line." --Dalton Fury, former Delta Force Commander and "New York Times "bestselling author of "Kill Bin Laden ""Great insights into the training and operations of one of America's premier counterterrorism units. Grabs you on page one and is hard to put down." --General Henry H. Shelton, USA(R), former Commander-In-Chief, U.S. Special Operations Command and 14th Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff"Wasdin is a true warrior and real hero. "SEAL Team Six "is a must read." --Gunnery Sgt. Jack Coughlin, USMC, and bestselling author of "Shooter "
