Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a postscript describing SEAL efforts in Afghanistan, The Warrior Elite takes you into the toughest, longest, and most relentless military training in the world.

What does it take to become a Navy SEAL? What makes talented, intelligent young men volunteer for physical punishment, cold water, and days without sleep? In The Warrior Elite, former Navy SEAL Dick Couch documents the process that transforms young men into warriors. SEAL training is the distillation of the human spirit, a tradition-bound ordeal that seeks to find men with character, courage, and the burning desire to win at all costs, men who would rather die than quit.

Synopsis:

What does it take to become a Navy SEAL? Author and former Navy SEAL Dick Couch takes you into the toughest, longest, and most relentless military training in the world and documents the process that transforms young men into warriors.
