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.
