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? In The Warrior Elite, former Navy SEAL Dick Couch documents the process that transforms young men into warriors. SEAL training is the distillation of the human spirit, a tradition-bound ordeal that seeks to find men with character, courage, and the burning desire to win at all costs, men who would rather die than quit.

    This is a great book, no doubt the reason is the author is a retired SEAL Captain. (That would be Colonel for Arny-USMC equivalents. He follows this BUD/S class and tells the story having been through the torture 30 years before. The last chapters were my favorite, explaining what these kids do after they earn a trident to get in an operational platoon that is being deployed. After Lone Survivor and SEAL Team Six, this is next on my fav's list

    One of the best books on SEALS by an actual SEAL and a honest to goodness hero. You will not be able to put this down once you start reading it. Bravo and well done.
