I got about halfway through this book, and I suppose I was spoiled by the action adventure that was Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10. Like that book, this is a book about an elite Navy SEAL, from his training to his missions, though Wasdin, as a member of Team Six, is even more elite. I have the greatest respect for his training, and for his courage, and I am really really really glad that I will never have to endure anything like what the SEALs do for training, let alone their missions. I also have new appreciation for the special forces teams that partner with and train with the SEALs throughout the world, and for US technology. But the book lacks an overarching story. It bogs in SEAL history and barroom stories and disjointed missions. That doesn't take one iota away from what Wasdin has accomplished, but I can wish that his co-author had elicited more of a Big Picture.
