Damn Few : Making the Modern SEAL Warrior

Damn Few : Making the Modern SEAL Warrior

Description

With all the Seals' recent successes, we have been getting a level of attention we are not used to. It's been flattering but something important has been missing from the discussion. People keep describing what we do, but no one has even scratched the surface of how and why. The unique psychology behind it. Lieutenant Commander Rorke Denver trains the men who become Navy Seals - some of the most creative problem solvers on the modern battlefield, ideal warriors for the kinds of wars we are now fighting. With his years of action-packed mission experience, Denver understands exactly how tomorrow's soldiers are recruited, sculpted, motivated, and deployed. Now, he takes you inside his personal story and the fascinating, demanding seal training program he has overseen in recent years. He recounts his evolution from a young seal hopeful pushing his way through Hell Week, into a warrior engaging in dangerous stealth missions across the globe, and finally into a lieutenant commander directing the indoctrination, requalification programs, and the "Hero or Zero" missions his graduating seals undertake.
Packed with tales from his own training and missions overseas, Denver details how the seals' creative operations became front and center in the global War on Terror, eventually capturing and killing Osama bin Laden, and how deployment of the seals is changing battlefields the world over. Through the course of his story, you'll see why damn few make it, and what it takes to become one of them.
