When the navy sends their elite, they send the SEALs. When the SEALs send their elite, they send SEAL Team Six. In this dramatic, behind-the-scenes chronicle, Howard Wasdin takes readers deep inside the world of navy SEALs and Special Forces snipers. After training, Desert Storm, and the selection process to join the legendary SEAL Team Six, Wasdin graduated from the most storied and challenging sniper program in the country, eventually becoming one of the best snipers on the planet. A few months later, he was fighting for his life. The Battle of Mogadishu left eighteen American soldiers dead and seventy-three wounded; Wasdin had both of his legs nearly blown off. His explosive combat tales and inside details of becoming one of the worlds deadliest snipers make this the most thrilling, important navy SEAL memoir since Lone Survivor.
A Navy SEAL Team Six sniper traces the story of how he became an elite soldier while recounting the dramatic mission that nearly cost him his life, offering insider perspectives on his team's extensive training process at the Marine's Scout Sniper School. Simultaneous.
A memoir by SEAL Team Six ex-sniper Wasdin coincidentally bursts onto the scene shortly after the same elite unit was credited with killing Osama bin Laden. The book rockets forward during precise bullet-by-bullet accounts from one of the world's most lethal marksmen, depicting the desperate Mogadishu "Black Hawk Down" battle and others. The team's grueling training with ambulances standing by, described in riveting detail by a survivor, remains widely regarded as the most rigorous ever devised by man and stood the author in good stead while his legs were being shot to pieces during a lengthy pitched firefight.
