Publisher's Summary

The old battle tactics were useless for the U.S. soldiers in Vietnam, who were fighting a guerrilla war on foreign soil for the first time in American history. With the depth and honesty of Steel My Soldiers' Hearts, SEAL Warrior sheds light on the operations of the SEAL teams in Vietnam and shows how the SEALs laid the foundation for the modern guerrilla warfare that is used today.

It also documents how one young American survived, fought, and grew to honor and trust many who had once been his enemy. With America again involved in guerrilla warfare, SEAL Warrior honors the unique abilities, understanding, courage, and insight of these warriors who hope and fight for nothing less than peace.

Doesn't quite hit the mark

For me this book was an OK listen but I should have realized the narrator would read it in the same monotone voice throughout as the sample clip, with no real emotion. Though there were some good stories about the war in Vietnam I think it could have been read better.

Seal Warrior

An excellent book. Being a Viet Nam Vet and having been on a Recon Team this is what it was like. A real true to life book on Viet Nam. Things can vary widely between one part of Viet Nam and the next but it's all Nam.Great Book.

Entertaining, worth the money

What made the experience of listening to SEAL Warrior the most enjoyable?

A good story from the Vietnam war written by someone who was there. I found it to be entertaining and a bit different from the usual war story.
