One Perfect Op: An Insider's Account of the Navy SEAL Special Warfare Teams Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A true and intimate portrait of the warriors on the front lines of the most devastating conflict of our age—a spellbinding look at the detailed inner workings of the U.S. Navy SEALs.

In the mid-1970s, Dennis Chalker volunteered to be a candidate for “the Teams”—elite Naval Special Forces units known for their unorthodox approaches to warfare and their ability to strike any target, no matter how heavily guarded or impossible to reach. After enduring the most rigorous selection process ever devised, he was personally chosen by “Rogue Warrior” Richard Marcinko for a leadership role in Red Cell. Together they would push special operations warfare to a level it had never achieved before. In stunning detail, Chalker now describes previously classified operations in Americas war on global terrorism. And at the center of his riveting, astonishingly honest account is one remarkable covert mission: a “perfect op” in which the objective was masterfully achieved without any evidence left behind to indicate that the SEALs were even there.

Synopsis:

Americas most elite commando unit, the US Navy SEAL Team Six pulled off one of the most remarkable covert operations in military history when they infiltrated the secret hideout of Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan in the dead of night and killed the hated terrorist mastermind. Dennis Chalker was an original “plankowner” (founding member) of SEAL Team Six, and in One Perfect Op, he takes readers deep inside the remarkable world of Americas Special Forces operatives. With an introduction by Richard Marcinko of Rogue Warrior fame, One Perfect Op describes, step by breathtaking step, one extraordinary SEALs mission, shedding fascinating new light on the training, the planning, the courage and the skill of these exceptional warriors.
