Publisher Comments:

STRIKE HARD. STRIKE FAST.

STRIKE FEAR INTO THE HEART OF THE ENEMY.

They operate by sea, air, and land, descending from the night sky, rising from the ocean depths, striking their targets with deadly efficiency, then vanishing into the darkness from which they emerged. From the dank jungles of Vietnam to the tropical shores of Panama to the blistering sands of Saddam Hussein's Iraq, the U.S. Navy SEALs have become the most fearsome special operations force in the world, living by the motto "The only easy day was yesterday."

In this unparalleled account of the origin, evolution, and future of this revered military elite, Orr Kelly brilliantly reveals their tactics and their methods, their past triumphs and scandals, including the celebrated Richard Marcinko (Rogue Warrior) case. Brave Men-Dark Waters leads us into the shadowy realm of danger and deception where SEAL commandos live — and sometimes die — by their own rules.

Synopsis:

Called "the best book to date on the SEAL unit" ("Publishers Weekly"), this in-depth study of the U.S. Navy SEALs examines the origin and evolution of this elite unit and draws on extensive interviews and recently declassified files to tell its story. Reissue.
