The New York Times best selling book that takes you inside SEAL Team Six – the covert squad that killed Osama Bin Laden

SEAL Team Six is a secret unit tasked with counterterrorism, hostage rescue, and counterinsurgency. In this dramatic, behind-the-scenes chronicle, Howard Wasdin takes readers deep inside the world of Navy SEALS and Special Forces snipers, beginning with the grueling selection process of Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S)—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, 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 a member of SEAL Team Six he graduated from the most storied and challenging sniper program in the country: The Marine's Scout Sniper School. Eventually, of the 18 snipers in SEAL Team Six, 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 become known, left 18 American soldiers dead and 73 wounded. Howard Wasdin had both of his legs nearly blown off while engaging the enemy. His dramatic combat tales combined with inside details of becoming one of the world's deadliest snipers make this one of the most explosive military memoirs in years.

Cada año se presentan un millar de aspirantes a ingresar en las filas de los Navy Seals norteamericanos, de los que solo unos 200 son admitidos. Tras años de un duro entrenamiento, un pequeño número de los mejores se integrarán en el “Seal Team Six”, el cuerpo secreto de élite creado en 1980, tras el fracaso del rescate de los rehenes estadounidenses en Irán. Una máquina humana de matar que ha protagonizado una impresionante serie de actuaciones, mantenidas generalmente en secreto, que culminaron en la muerte de Osama bin Laden. Este libro nos cuenta la historia de uno de sus miembros: un niño maltratado por su padrastro, que, sin dinero para seguir estudiando, escogió la dura vida de los Seals y se convirtió en uno de los elegidos que combatieron en Irak o en Somalia, a costa de sufrir graves lesiones y arruinar su vida familiar. La crítica ha destacado la fuerza visceral de este libro, que nos muestra la dura existencia de estos hombres en un relato real “con más acción que una novela de Tom Clancy”.
