Seal Team Six Outcasts by Howard E. Wasdin and Stephen Templin

This book follows a black ops Seal team charged with assassinating terrorists.

I was a bit skeptical reading the book regarding the operational aspects of the book. After reading that both authors are Seals I had to wonder if my skepticism was misplaced. The goals of the Outcasts are laudable and you find yourself hoping that our government is sponsoring a similar program.

The characters and action were good. The only in-depth charac...more

This was an okay book, but nothing outstanding about it. I liked the action part, but at times events went a little too smooth for the Outcasts. They would pop in somewhere in the world, knock off a terrorist or two and zip off to the next bad guy with neary any thoughts on it. And the romance between Alex (the lead SEAL) and the lone female agent with them (Cat) seemed way out of place. Am I reading an action novel or one of those steamy SEAL romance books that Amazon has. This book is way over...more

Three Navy enlisted men have disobeyed orders in their terrorist-fighting assignments for their SEAL units and come close to getting kicked out of the Navy. They did not, however, take actions which “disobeyed” common sense. For example, an administrative-oriented commanding officer ordered a withdrawal from taking out a known terrorist because there was no independent verification of their target and because he had just crossed the Afghanistan border into Pakistan. Sniper Chief Petty Officer Al...more

I enjoyed "Seal Team Six Outcast" by Howard E. Wasdin because it deals with special forces. This Navy seal named Alex that was kick out of his seal team,because he didn't listen to his commander. Alex's team has to stop an attack on the U.S

This book is about four characters that are on a new seal team that the skipper created. Alex is hyper active and high strung.They are on special missions that only a few people know about. It is happening in present day. This story relates so close to reali...more

I read SEAL TEAM SIX by the same authors and was blown away by it mainly due to it being based on true and actual events. The details in that book was the kicker for me. As they say, the devil is in the details.

Outcasts is a refreshing take on black ops. The story was well-conceived and -developed. Sadly, I couldn't give it five stars because of the details. I felt that there was too much detail on the technical stuff. I would normally want this in a SEAL Team Six story even though it was fictio...more

Well...it was ok. I don't know if I can give it much more credit than that. I was expecting more since Wasdin's first novel; Seal Team Six: Memoirs..." was better. The dialog was was stinted and simple, the missions unremarkable, and the love interest unemotional. Bleh!

I picked this book up for two reasons: one, because I had previously read Howard E. Wasdin's "Seal Team Six" and really loved it; and two, because I always like a good SEAL read.
This was not a good SEAL read, in this humble writer's opinion. Of the four protagonists - John, Poncho, Alex, and Cat - two were cardboard cutout characters. Alex and Cat were the two main main characters - and, I don't know if this counts as spoilers, because it's so obvious - they have a love interest. I was complete...more

Poorly written. Won't read this again

I'm a sucker for military fiction, so I jumped at the chance to read this. Overall, I enjoyed the military-side of the plot: the hunting terrorists, going undercover, talk about SEAL training. However, I felt like there were some content issues that just kept getting in my way of completely enjoying this book.

First, Cat was just a prop. She had no real character, didn't have much of a part in the actual hunting down terrorists. I'm convinced she was only there for the romance and to make a husba...more

Definitely outside my usual reading box, but once I read the chapter one excerpt …I was hooked.


It does get technical on the weaponry, locations, and military jargon at times….but not so much so that the story is unreadable or un-enjoyable for a civilian such as myself. For those that are into all the scopes and gadgets and Tangos and the like, you’ll adore that aspect of the writing because it comes from true insiders that have been there before. For me, I was content in summing those sections u...more

I must first state that I have the highest respect for the SEALS, not just because of current events but I had close friends who were SEALS in Vietnam. I have read Wasdin's non-fiction book and liked it.

This fiction story of SEALS had possibilities, but never quite got there. There is plenty of action, enough to make a good Stallone movie. In fact it would probable make a good source for a screenplay. I also liked the little details in preparation that a real SEAL would know. The knowledge of w...more

"SEAL Team Six Outcasts," the freshman effort of author Stephen Templin, and decorated, retired Navy SEAL Team Six member, Howard Wasdin, into the world of action/adventure military thrill rides, is a solid success. The book is an action packed page turner, filled with suspense, and enough detail, to turn every young man's heart a flutter. I'm not saying the book doesn't have its problems, but they are easier to overlook when the story content is so rich, and rings so true, from men who have wal...more

Imagine my surprise when, strolling through the grocery store, sneaking a peek at the novels, I stumble upon a novel by Howard E. Wasdin and Stephen Templin. Initially, with the title, I figured it was just an extended, special version of their earlier, Seal Team Six. I became extremely enthused when I realized that, instead, it was a military fiction. It took precedence on my ever expanding must-buy list.

I actually had the chance to nab the book recently. While the storyline is particularly int...more

I think that Howard E. Wasdin & Stephen Templin make two great authors together. I also think that this book extremely deserves a 5 star rating because it jas action, adventure, and truth to this book.

This book is mostly about how Alex Brandenburg (Chief Petty Officer) disobeyed a direct order to let a deadly terrorist to live another day. So the Outcasts have to take out the seven terror merchants that are in Afghanistan or Iraq. So they have to use stealth, strength, and swiftness to take...more

entertaining fiction. not so good plot
C. Stuchl
Loved it. What a ride.
Mark Polino
Fun read. Lots of terrorist killing action. A couple of plot holes stood out but not too badly. I don't think that these are spoilers. Terrorist steal a Frito lay truck and repaint it as a ups truck. Why not just steal ups truck? Also the intelligence on terrorist whereabouts was a little convenient. These are quibbles. I would read more by these guys.

I really liked this book. Before you read this you should know that it is fictional. However it gives the same feel of reading Howard Wasdin's first book which is non-fiction. I really like how the book is written. Howard Wasdin really adds that 'wow' factor!
