New York: Ivy Books, 1991. Fourth printing [stated]. Mass market paperback. vi, , 272,  pages. Illustrations. Maps. Appendices. Notes. Glossary. Bibliography. Index. Front cover creased. In January 1962, two Sea, Air, and Land Teams were formed. Commissioned to operate up to twenty miles inland in enemy territory, they would act as naval commandos whose functions were to gather intelligence, raid, ambush, capture prisoners, and create havoc in enemy territory. This book recounts the many daring missions that the SEALs undertook to serve their country. It was during the Vietnam War years that their Special Warfare reputation was built, and the heroism of the few brave men detailed here shows why. U.S. Navy SEALs staged ambushes, gathered intelligence, raided VC strongholds, captured prisoners and supplies and created havoc in the enemy's rear areas. This book tells the dramatic story of these highly trained commandos in Southeast Asia, from the early coastal reconnaissance missions to the withdrawal of the last SEAL team. Sixteen pages of never-before-published photos show SEALs in training, on patrol in VC territory and moving up canals in the Mekong Delta. Appendices list SEAL award recipients (including Medal of Honor winners), personnel killed in action, SEAL combat tips and more. This is the definitive book on the American unit most feared by the VC. U.S. Navy Special Warfare in Vietnam comprising SEAL (Sea, Air, Land Teams) and UDT (Underwater Demolition Teams). Condition: Good.
