More About Navy Seals by Dick Couch; William Doyle; Carol L. Fleisher
 
 
 
Overview

The first complete history of the U.S. Navy SEALs--from their roots in World War II to their celebrated efforts in the War on Terror--written with the unprecedented cooperation of the Navy. The book will tie-in with a fall 2014 PBS series.

Over the last fifty years, a small Navy unit has evolved into the world's most celebrated fighting force: the U.S. Navy SEALs. Until now, their stories have been sealed in the chambers of operational secrecy--and the brotherhood of SEAL anonymity. Here, for the first time, Naval Special Warfare Command and more than one hundred former and active-duty SEAL go on the record at last: highly respected retired SEAL Dick Couch and historian Bill Doyle record their stories in Navy Seals and give us the epic chronicle these legendary warriors deserve.

Written with unprecedented cooperation from the Navy, Navy Seals charts the SEALs story, from their origins in the daring commando units of WWII to their coming of age in Vietnam and rise to glory in Iraq and Afghanistan after 9/11. Illustrated with never-before-seen photographs, documents, and archival material, here are the greatest missions of the world's most legendary special operators--in their own words.

Despite the title, much of what former SEAL Couch (Sheriff of Ramadi) and historian Doyle (American Gun, with Chris Kyle) cover has been shared elsewhere, but they fill a niche among the voluminous, recent accounts of Navy SEAL operations by linking the pre-9/11 history of the SEALs to the extensive combat operations conducted since. The authors claim that this is the only history of the SEALs that covers the entire period of the SEALs' existence, and they tell the story through a series of vignettes selected to capture the essence of the SEAL combat experience. Beginning with the SEALs' WWII predecessors, the Navy Underwater Demolitions Teams, Couch and Doyle present personal experiences of individual SEAL unit veterans, often through interviews with the authors. The authors also highlight historical aspects of SEAL operations and training that continue to be important today, such as explaining the origin of the relationship between SEALS and the CIA. Though serious students of special operations warfare will find little new material here, it is an entertaining and informative read for a general audience. (Nov.)
