SEAL Team Six

Memoirs of an Elite Navy Seal Sniper...Howard E. Wasdin & Stephen Templin.

The title was just to long to put in the little space given...This book was so good & hard to put down.  I started reading it when we were camping last summer @ Lake Tahoe.  I was using my flashlight, my phone & reading during daylight hours when I could! 

When the Navy sends their elite, they send the SEALs. When the SEALs send their elite, they send SEAL Team Six
SEAL Team Six is a secret unit tasked with counterterrorism, hostage rescue, and counterinsurgency. In this dramatic, behind-the-scenes chronicle, Howard Wasdin takes readers deep inside the world of Navy SEALS and Special Forces snipers, beginning with the grueling selection process of Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S)—the toughest and longest military training in the world.  What these guys go through is hideous & it's a wonder so many fail.  Those who make it are truly 'The Elite'!!!

I don't like to give to much up on any book...this book was excellent.  We got it for my dad for Father Day, he finished I grabbed it before he could put it down.  I do read alot of  different books so when I think they are books you will like I will tell you about them!

  1. At the beginning I thought there were a lot of product placement in the book, which I found disappointing, however the more I read the more I realized that it is not product placement (even though it's hard to tell) but simply telling the reader about the equipment being used - the best of the best - and why.

    A bit disturbing were the chapters about Mr. Wasdin's childhood and the abuse he suffered by his step father. Mr. Wasdin credits that abuse with his ability to withstand pain and attention to detail, which I gathered he truly believes.
