After just finishing Lone Survivor, Seal Team Six is a great follow up story. I ran and hiked more miles because I was so engaged in the story. I will continue to seek out great military stories.
A very good read from a soldier that isn't afraid to tell about all facets of a special operations warrior. It's up there with one of my favorites
This book is an epic insight into one Navy Seal's mindset. It doesn't come across as a "look at how awesome I am."
This is a book as seen if the reader was a fly on the wall. Very down to earth with many insights into the authors defeats as well as victories.
I listen to a variety of audio books constantly in car and gym. My reviews remind me what I’ve read & are hopefully helpful to you as well.
very good book made excellent by Ray Porter's narration. story includes accounts of missions as well as training of SEALs. I recommend it!
This story was very interesting and there were so many layers to it from his childhood through his military service and his life afterwards. I'm so glad I purchased this audiobook.. The narrator made it even better!
Love my family...along with guitars, road bikes, cameras, and a good book!
I really enjoyed this book. Reading about other people's lives is so intriguing to me. The life that Howard Wasdin lived is so vastly different from mine, that it is hard to fathom. I truly enjoyed listening to the experiences and trials that he went through. The writing in this book is not the best, but the telling of the tales does not suffer because of it.
I am so glad that there are people like this in the world, who allow the rest of us to live in relative peace and safety. We owe a lot to the men and women who choose to serve our country in the armed forces.
This was an amazing and deeply personal story detailing the life of one of America's truest heroes who lived life on the edge as a Navy Seal sniper and who would later recover from a devastating injury and find a new purpose in life. One of the best military reads I've ever read or listened to.
The book gave an interesting insider's look into the United States Seal Teams, as well as the closely guarded Seal Team 6. It will make you appreciative of those who willingly put themselves through the intensive selection process and training necessary to become a Seal Team member (or at least it should.) It was also interesting to read of how Howard Wasdin's childhood, in particular his relationship with his father, shaped him and equipped him in some ways to be a Seal Team member. Though his father's parenting skills, or the lack of them, were not ideal by any means, his father did nonetheless have a part in giving him the toughness to be a Seal.
The aim of the book is to give an outsiders a look into the Seal Teams. However, it also gave a rarely seen look into the U.S. actions in Somalia during the Clinton era. In particular Wasdin relates how political correctness and political considerations hindered the mission in Somalia making some aspects of it impossible. Wasdin also related the frustration many felt concerning the truth that political correctness and the fears of political repercussions needlessly cost many American lives.
