The Frogmen of World War II: An Oral History of the U.S. Navy's Underwater Demolition Teams

The Frogmen of World War II: An Oral History of the U.S. Navy's Underwater Demolition Teams Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As countless battlefronts in the Pacific, African, and European theaters called for direct amphibious assaults against islands and beachheads, a small corps of exceptionally skilled fighting men was formed — the U.S. Navy underwater warriors. Beginning in 1943, these men undertook never-before-attempted missions ranging from eye-to-eye recon of enemy-held positions to staging the demolition of shoreline obstacles and clearing the way for landing craft.

Here, in their own words, are the true stories of these aquatic commandos, whose daring exploits and bravery would pave the way for thousands of American fighting men around the globe — and whose recolitionary training and fighting methods would evolve into the modern specail forces known as the Navy SEALs.

Synopsis:

The precursors to the elite Navy SEALs, the Underwater Demolition Warriors, also known as frogmen, took on never-before-attempted missions during World War II. Here, in their own words, are the true stories of these aquatic commandos. Original.
