    With a postscript describing SEAL efforts in Afghanistan, The Warrior Elite takes you into the toughest, longest, and most relentless military training in the world. What does it take to become a Navy SEAL? What makes talented, intelligent young men volunteer for physical punishment, cold water, and days without sleep?

    Where does The Warrior Elite rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a good book on all aspects of Seal BUDS training. It was especially good since written by a former Navy Seal. He added a lot of insight into the whole process. Woudl recommend it to any military buffs. The book is even motivational after hearing what these guys go through on a daily basis.

    At 6:00 a.m. on the morning of October 3, 2009, Combat Outpost Keating was viciously attacked by Taliban insurgents. The 53 U.S. troops, having been stationed at the bottom of three steep mountains, were severely outmanned by nearly 400 Taliban fighters. Though the Americans ultimately prevailed, their casualties made it one of the war's deadliest battles for U.S. forces. And after more than three years in that dangerous and vulnerable valley a mere 14 miles from the Pakistan border, the U.S. abandoned and bombed the camp.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book on our troops fighting in Afghanistan stands out among most of the war history books I've read. The author's research is phenomenal and his attention to detail is appreciated. From politics to battle scenes to families morning the loss of loved ones, this book tells all and doesn't hold much back. The book will move you in some fashion.

  • Give Me Tomorrow: The Korean War’s Greatest Untold Story - The Epic Stand of the Marines of George Company

    “If I were God, what would you want for Christmas?” With a thousand-yard stare, a haggard and bloodied marine looked incredulously at the war correspondent who asked him this question. In an answer that took “almost forever,” the marine responded, “Give me tomorrow." After nearly four months of continuous and bloody combat in Korea, such a wish seemed impossible.

    James says: "The boys of Summer Camp….Amazing!!"
    "Real men, real action in Korean War. Sobering!"

    If you could sum up Give Me Tomorrow in three words, what would they be?

    An excellent book on the Korean War! It seems little is known about these battles and the men who fought in them, but what conditions, what bravery against all odds! Very gripping, yet sobering account of their triumphs and tragedies. A must read for those who like military history.
