Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up-This is an adaptation of the author's adult memoir of his time as a U. S. Navy SEAL Team Six sniper, simplified for teen audiences. Wasdin describes in detail his grueling training. As he says, "If I'm able to talk someone out of [becoming a SEAL], I'm just saving them time, because they really don't want it anyway." He also talks about his missions during Desert Storm and Mogadishu, Somalia, where SEALs, Delta Force, and Airforce Rangers were sent to capture the Warlord Aidid. Wasdin was shot three times during this mission and nearly lost his leg. He saw some men die in Somalia and would later fall into a depression that took years to overcome. This is a great book for teens interested in joining the military, adventure fans looking for something meatier, and guys in general. The action will keep all readers turning the pages wanting to see how the missions and training turned out. Wasdin also tells the story from the other side of the press, giving insight into military actions that are often criticized by the media and politicians. The author actually credits the physical abuse he sustained from his stepfather as preparation for his arduous training to become a Navy SEAL.-Erik Carlson, White Plains Public Library, NYα(c) Copyright 2011.

Review

"This young-readers version of an ex-SEAL sniper's account (SEAL Team Six, 2011) of his training and combat experiences in Operation Desert Storm and the first Battle of Mogadishu makes colorful, often compelling reading."―Kirkus Reviews

Howard E. Wasdin (the Navy SEAL) and Stephen Templin are excellent writers! This book held my attention completely! I love reading about Navy SEALs and snipers, and this is one of the most well-written books I have read. They get into much more details about how SEALs and snipers are trained. For example, you can be an Olympic Gold-Medal marksman, but if you fail stalking your prey, you don't make it as a sniper! After sniper training at FBI headquarters in Quantico, VA, they receive additional training in skills such as honing your skills shooting out the doors of a moving helicopter! These are just a couple of fascinating examples from the book. I felt as if I were right there while he is pulling the trigger. One of the BEST Navy SEAL books I have ever read! I highly recommend it.

Our 11 year old son needed to read a biography for an American historical figure for a book report. He wanted to read Chris Kyle. Michael Murphy, or someone of that nature. He loved the book and wrote an essay on Howard Wasdin for his school district's essay contest. He took 2nd out of the entire district. We (my wife and I) were very proud to see him take an interest in a true hero and honor him through his essay.

I have been fortunate to have read a reviewed numerous books about SEAL Training, as well as some fantastic memoirs of SEAL warriors who related their incredible experiences so that we may all learn some valuable life lessons from them. I was in the U.S. Navy (1959-1963) but did not have an opportunity to attend BUD/S because of my medical problems at that time. However, I have always had enormous respect and admiration for the UDT/SEALS and other Special Ops units in the Navy, Army, Marines and Air force.

This excellent book relates the experiences of Howard E. Wasdin, a former U.S. Navy SEAL Sniper. The text is organized into two parts. Part one he relates his sad home and family challenges, but the interesting part is that he puts a positive spin on his bad home life. He was able to endure the hard and brutal SEAL training because of his tragic home life at the time. He is not bitter but actually shows enormous humanity in his story. The first part also covers his joining the Navy and of course, the difficult SEAL training program, as well as his entry into SEAL Team Two, where he served in Desert Storm.

The second part explains his slection into the legendary SEAL Team Six and his Sniper school training. This section also has the most tense and exciting story of the Battle of Mogadishu. If you saw the movie Black Hawk Down, the author was there when the fighting was most intense. He was wounded seriously in the leg in that battle. He has some harsh, but true criticism for the political decisions made which he blames for so many Americans who died during that engagement. He does not hold anything back in his evaluation of the Mogadishu battle and the mistakes that were made at that time.

Thank you Dr. Wasdin, for writing such an important autobiography.
After all, there are only a few hundred people who hold positions as this country's best special operations soldiers, for whom their military can always count on for brave, impossible assignments. Special Operations soldiers are rarely seen and until recent years, rarely heard of.

You wrote one of the best described books on how it is to make it...as a Special Op's. warrior... by living it.
I am very proud, and feel safer to be on American soil after reading all that you and your brothers are willing to strive for, in the name of our county. So am I grateful for your opening up as candidly as you could, with your life in this genre. I agree too, that the way you were raised, physiologically enhanced your character when you needed to strive most--in SEAL training, in the Special Forces, and in your life once leaving the field.

It was interesting to find that your team works with other USA Special Ops., like Delta Force, Rangers and especially those greatly over looked, yet much needed
'pilots' in the skies! They showed themselves as heroic by working as flying, moving, living targets in the course to free our guys on the ground from a locked-in situation during one of your missions. Those pilots were incredible!

I have seen BUDS on the Military Channel, and recognized different faces of fear, exhaustion and failure. I wish I had seen yours along with the few making it to the end with you graduating--only to train for the rest of your careers and specialize in a particular field as a Special Forces soldier of which ever division.

I found this autobiography very interesting and informative. The determination of Wasdin to become a seal is determination I wish all Americans had in each of their endeavors. Becoming a SEAL is EXTREMELY difficult and this young man was one of the few who made it. After I read this book I decided that it should be in the libraries of both junior and senior high schools as there are many young men who look at professional sports or the Olympics as a way to their athleticism goals.. However, when young men strive to become SEALS and reach their goals, they are the real "supermen" of our times; athleticism and endurance beyond the normal imagination. Unlike professional athletes and Olympians, the SEALS never ask for public recognition. They do their job for the love of nation and for the dedication to democracy----putting their lives at risk with each mission. I really appreciated this story and the young man about whom it is written. God bless the SEALS!!
