I read the first Rogue Warrior book when it came out years ago, so my memory of it is vague, but I think it was non-fiction. In this one, Marcinko and his ghost writer John Weisman tell a "might have happened" tale in which the Rogue Warrior is put back on active duty for ambiguous reasons. It's a classic plot of chase and capture and delayed revelation - the only two real plots for any action story. I had personal contact with a real Navy SEAL for years, and so the military jargon and the brava ...more

I thought this was incredibly fun to read. I like the first-person style. Marcinko is just such an appealing character, and I was always looking forward to whatever he was going to do next. I will definitely be reading more in the series.
Why is this guy so appealing and fun to read about?
Larger than life hero.
Good story.
War games, stolen weapons.

The further "real life" adventures of the author. Recommended
And now the fiction starts...but it's damn good fiction. Awesomely action-packed and incredibly irreverent, so it's not to be missed.
My first Rogue Warrior book. I liked it. I've only been able to acquire abridged versions of Marcinko's books and I don't like those versions. I'm also on the fence whether I really like Marcinko performing the narration. He has a way about him that seems to compliment the writing, but I wonder if it would have been better with an experienced narrator. I may listen to one or two more abridged versions to get a better feel for his character, but I'd much rather find unabridged copies as I said.
Unlike the first book that was a true story, this one is purely fiction and not even good fiction. I read it when I was 16 so maybe it's not as bad a I remembered but knowing Marcinko personally, I had hoped to see him continue with real events and stories. Being the son of "Gold Dust Frank" from the first book, I knew there was plenty more he could of went on about in a second book. My guess is he took a lot of flak from NAVSPECWAR after the first and decided against it.
Well done!

Great job Marcinko! I'm a Navy veteran of 21years . (Not a SEAL) The resistance to change is through out the service. We thank the man for folks like you. You're a breath of fresh air. Outstanding book!
Marcinko, thought writing the same book over and over, makes for a great afternoon... although you have to wash your mouth out with soap,etc afterwards.

He's so manly, there is hair on this book.
This one was the best of the series. Though is work is "fictional" ... he makes sure you know it really isn't (he's just tweaked some names or locations to avoid going back to jail).
apparently he got in trouble with the last book because of some "Military secrets" or whatnot so marcinko went to writing novels instead. Still funny and still good.
What an awesome book. I know this book is "fiction" but is it really real? It is an amazing story, true or not, with a brilliant ending.
Andrew Spangler
Not bad.. a fictionalized sequel to the first Rogue Warrior. A little dry and forced at times, but certainly entertaining.
I gave it a star even though I didn't want to...because Marcinko could probably find me and kill me.
Fred Malpass
This was just awful. Just a book full of posturing and tiny dick swinging, not worth the time for sure.
This book just pulled me in and I was completely enthralled by all that he wrote.
lots of action, shooting, probably some drinking or two. very entertaining read!
I didn't find this book as enjoybable as the first Rogue Warrior book or Green Team.
Good book. Not my favorite by Marcinko - but good none the less.
Excellent book,i read it in 2001 my favorite from Demo Dick
Interesting look into the history of The Navy Seals.
Sophomore book in the series. Definitely cheesy.
Micheal Childress
Great action. Helped me stay awake on night shift
Harry Diamond
Action packed but too much usless bad language
One of the worst books I've ever read
Not as good as I was hoping for.
One of my favorite badass characters!

“The goddamn Air Force was probably taking a coffee break. That’s how they worked—like union bus-drivers—most of the time. Six or seven hours of flight time (not to exceed this or that altitude, of course), and then it was bye-bye for a didy change, a nap, and a cup of cocoa.” 1 likes
