Buy it! You won't regret it.
I spent a career in the Navy. This book lacks authenticity and is unbelievable on many fronts. The author did not do his due diligence in researching basic Navy life, Navy rank/rate structure, let alone basic geography.
At one point he has a primary character leaving Virginia Beach, VA and travelling "over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge to Delaware." While that might be believable from Washington DC or Baltimore, it is not feasible from Virginia Beach in the time profile given. More believable would be going from VA Beach to Maryland's eastern shore via the Chesapeake Tunnel/Bridge.
There is a supposed "best friend" relationship between two main characters - an E-6 and an E-8 who were on the same career trajectory as AO's (on the USS Lexington, no less, a ship decommissioned in 1991, ~20 yrs before the timeline of this book) and best friends before helping each other coast through BUD/S, subsequently joining the Teams. Not likely. BUD/S isn't a buddy system, not in that sense.
Next problem - these same two characters go directly from SQT to Seal Team SIX. I don't care how senior your rate/rank is, you don't go directly from BUD/S to VI. Doesn't happen.
He calls an E-3 a Seaman Apprentice (inaccurate, E-3 is a Seaman, E-2 is a Seaman Apprentice).
He refers to "ratings" in a context to infer seniority. In the Navy rate refers to an enlisted sailor's pay grade (E1 through E9). Rating refers to their job designation, or occupation. For instance, an E-5 (Petty Officer 2nd Class) who is qualified as a Gunner's Mate (GM) rating, would be a referred to as a GM2. GM is his rating, nothing to do with his rate or seniority. A rating badge, however, depicts both rate and rating together.Read more ›

It's a fascinating story but it is poorly written, and that gets in the way so often that it makes working through the book drudgery at times. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Glenn Firestone
