The guy was too perfect. He attempts to leave you with the impression that everything he does is right. There had to be some failures in his story that he omits. Overall though it was a good lesten and the narrator did fine.
The test of indurance needed for the training.
Made you feel like your there.
Pretty high, easy to listen to
More humor than expected, very dry humor.
Narrator was good, story moved quickly. Lots of dry, wry humor.
Yes. Gripping story telling. Good sense of humor in serious situations. Very honest.
Real life navy seal stories and training/battle accounts
No because I already listened to it.
I liked that Howard gave details of his whole life.
I liked the battle scenes. The description of the scenes were great.
Thought the story was cheesy
No part of my dislike was the way the book was read
Honest, insightful, humorous
The honest explanation of how politics hindered these men from completing their tasks.
Aside from "Inside Delta Force" it is the best military book I've read (heard). They are both books that should be required reading for all High School graduates, they truly remind us of the sacrifices made that allow us to live in a free society.
I listened to this book everyday for a week. I loved it, Howard described the battle of Mogadishu so clearly, it brought tears to my eyes.
How he spoke of his childhood was a great background for how he became such a strong Seal.
When Howard and his team helped that little boy and his foot in Somalia.
Brother Seals in Somalia
I have listened to almost 200 audio books from Audible and this is in the top 10%.
Howard was my favorite character. He is the type individual who is drawn to the SEALS and does his job with little or no fanfare.
I enjoyed the encounter with the local rednecks.
I was moved by the compassion shown to the young boy who had his foot and leg blown away by the militia and the risk taken by Seal team six to treat the boy and risk detection by the hostiles.
Excellent insight into Special Ops training, tactics, missions and their psyche. Howard Wasdin gives an honest and entertaining account life in such an elite unit as well as how his childhood prepared him and how he coped after..
