    DescriptionA thrilling account of life in the US Navy's elite force, the SEALs; Contains first-hand descriptions of clandestine actions 'Since the first Navy frogmen crawled onto the beaches of Normandy, no SEAL has ever surrendered,' writes Chuch Pfarrer. 'No SEAL has ever been captured, and not one teammate or body has ever been left in the field. This legacy of valor is unmatched in modern warfare.' Warrior Soul is a book about the warrior spirit, and it takes the reader all over the world. Former Navy SEAL Chuck Pfarrer recounts some of his most dangerous assignments. On a clandestine reconnaissance mission on the Mosquito Coast his recon team plays a deadly game of cat and mouse with a Nicaraguan patrol boat. Cut off on the streets of Beirut, the author's SEAL detachment battles snipers on the Green Line. In the mid-Atlantic, Pfarrer's unit attempts to retrieve - or destroy - the booster section of a Trident ballistic missile before it can be recovered by a Russian spy trawler. On a runway in Sicily his assault element surrounds an Egyptian airliner carrying the Achille Lauro hijackers. These are only a few of the riveting stories of combat patrol, reconnaissance missions, counter-terrorist operations, tragedies and victories in Warrior Soul that illustrate the SEAL maxim: 'The person who will not be defeated cannot be defeated'. In addition to his outstanding eight-year career as a Navy SEAL, Chuck Pfarrer was also the screenwriter for the motion pictures The Jackal, Darkman, Red Planet, Virus, Hard Target and Navy SEALs.
