Description
"Part of a naval tradition dating back to World War II, the first SEAL teams were commissioned in January 1962. Formed to execute special missions and to counteract guerrilla warfare, which was becoming more and more common throughout the world, SEAL teams trained to fight in SEa, Air, and Land environments. Undergoing a training regimen considered one of the most difficult in the military, SEALs were underwater demolition experts, experienced parachutists, and specialists in a host of other skills. And their first real proving ground was Vietnam." "In Hunters and Shooters, fifteen SEALs who fought in Vietnam share their experiences - wins, losses, and lessons learned."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
