Whattaya Mean I Can't Kill 'em: A Navy Seal in Vietnam

Whattaya Mean I Can't Kill 'em: A Navy Seal in Vietnam Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"We will be in enemy territory, we will be alone,
and we will be a long way from help."

A tour in Vietnam as a Frog--a member of the navy's Underwater Demolition Team (UDT)--wasn't challenging enough for Rad Miller. So he spent most of 1968 learning to be a SEAL, completing what is arguably the toughest warrior training in the world. By early 1969, he was back in Vietnam, ready to go deep behind enemy lines with a squad of only seven men.

In his unvarnished and brutally candid account, Miller shares the raw, bloody, and courageous daily life of SEALs in Vietnam. Here are unbelievable moments in six months of missions--without a single SEAL KIA--during which his platoon ran ninety-four ops, killed forty-three of the enemy, and captured thirty-one. Stealing into hostile villages, gathering intelligence, killing or kidnapping VC officials, and surviving a tropical hell of mud, heat, leeches, and constant, life-threatening peril, Miller and his teammates undeniably earned their pay. . . .
