Don Mann offers an indispensable, ground-breaking narrative of what it takes to make a SEAL and to break a man – very close to the same thing. Pushing himself and his men to extremes, Mann suffered intensely for country and here he’ll describe his life in the SEALS and SEAL Team 6, his training and the training he conducted and the operations that took him within an inch of his life. This will be the most up-to-date, comprehensive book on SEAL Team 6.
There are 6500 Navy SEALS but only a select few reach the most rigorous, effective team of all, so secret that its operations are only beginning to be understood: known as SEAL Team 6, it’s one of the United States’s two secretive Tier One counter-terrorism and Special Missions Units; the other such group is 1st SFOD-D (Delta Force).
SEAL Team 6 trains and operates over 300 days a year away from home. They have been secretly involved in every major US military operation since their founding in World War II. They are the only unit qualified to operate in all terrains and most recently, they were responsible for the capture and death of Osama Bin Laden.
On air, on land, at sea–the SEALS are the dominant, misunderstood, and secrecy-shrouded American special operations unit, and here, they come to vivid life.
