The most 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 Naval Special Warfare community. 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. Drawing on exclusive interviews with more than 100 former special operators, highly respected retired SEAL Dick Couch and award-winning author Bill Doyle record their stories in Navy Seals and give us the epic chronicle these legendary warriors deserve.

Navy Seals charts the SEALs story, from their origins in the daring Naval Combat Demolition Teams, Underwater Demolition Teams, Scouts and Raiders commando units, and OSS Operational Swimmers of WWII to their coming of age in Vietnam and rise to glory in Iraq and Afghanistan after 9/11. Illustrated with 40-pages of photographs, here are the greatest missions of the world's most legendary special operators--in their own words.

When the US Navy SEALs were created at the impetus of President John F. Kennedy, it was as a special ops force to aid pro-democracy insurgents, in fighting against dictators around the world, not in what they later became, a force to help overthrow democratically-elected presidents, and after their hitches to work for dictators as their paid henchmen, or join up with disreputable PMCs. The final low point was when four SEALs, friends of that sniper fellow, who falsely testified against Jessie Ventura, who sued that sniper fellow who libeled him with a complete fiction [Ventura won the court case because the witnesses who testified on his behalf weren't connected to him and could prove they were at that bar that night in question, while the four SEALs were friends of the sniper fellow and could not prove they were at the very same bar!] Something is really rotten in SEAL-land. [Still consider Carlos Hathcock as America's best sniper!]
