Publisher's Summary

When the Navy sends their elite, they send the SEALs. When the SEALs send their elite, they send SEAL Team Six—a secret unit tasked with counterterrorism, hostage rescue, and counterinsurgency.

In this dramatic, behind-the-scenes chronicle, Howard Wasdin takes listeners deep inside the world of Navy SEALs and Special Forces snipers, beginning with the grueling selection process of Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL - the toughest and longest military training in the world.

After graduating, Wasdin faced new challenges. First, there was combat in Operation Desert Storm as a member of SEAL Team Two. Then, the Green Course: the selection process to join the legendary SEAL Team Six (ST6), with a curriculum that included practiced land warfare to unarmed combat. More than learning how to pick a lock, they learned how to blow the door off its hinges.

Finally, as member of ST6, he graduated from the most storied and challenging sniper program in the country: the Marine Corps Scout Sniper School. Eventually, of the 18 snipers in ST6, Wasdin became the best—which meant one of the best snipers on the planet.

Less than half a year after sniper school, he was fighting for his life. The mission: capture or kill Somalian warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid. From rooftops, helicopters, and alleys, Wasdin hunted Aidid and killed his men whenever possible. But everything went quickly to hell when his small band of soldiers found themselves fighting for their lives, cut off from help and desperately trying to rescue downed comrades during a routine mission. The Battle of Mogadishu, as it became known, left 18 American soldiers dead and 73 wounded. Howard Wasdin had both of his legs nearly blown off while engaging the enemy. His explosive combat tales and inside details of becoming one of the world’s deadliest snipers combine to make this the most thrilling and important memoir by a navy SEAL since Lone Survivor.

    Story
    "Great book, well worth the money and time"
    If you could sum up SEAL Team Six in three words, what would they be?

    Honest, insightful, humorous


    What was one of the most memorable moments of SEAL Team Six?

    The honest explanation of how politics hindered these men from completing their tasks.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Interesting Insight on this Elite Fighting Force"
    Where does SEAL Team Six rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have listened to almost 200 audio books from Audible and this is in the top 10%.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the encounter with the local rednecks.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.

    Story
    "Hell Week and Beyond"
    What did you love best about SEAL Team Six?

    Whether this was ficticious or not (depending upon the controversy surrounding this book), the detail to the training and the personal lives of the SEALs really helps make them real instead of superior heros to the modern man. The fact that there's regular emotion, sadness, divorce, and life beyond the SEAL team really helps make the characters in the book relatable to the average person.


    What other book might you compare SEAL Team Six to and why?

    SEAL Team Outcasts, No Easy Day- they're written the same way and make you grateful that these men and women are willing to put their lives on the line for the rest of us, who they don't owe anything to. Thank you to all the servicemen and women. Thanks Chad and Daniel.


    Have you listened to any of Ray Porter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have all of the Joe Ledger series because Mr. Porter read it. This one is awesome, just like the rest. Mr. Porter is #2 on my list of favorites.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were moments of personal loss in this SEAL's life that made me sad, but I won't ruin it for you. The fact that they give up literally everything to fight for us... it's just too much sometimes.
