Had the privilege of knowing a few seals in Viet Nam one of whom was captured,mutilated,castrated (told they did not want anymore like him) and left for dead only to be retrieved buy his buddies later. As I read his DD214 Tears welled up in my eyes and I saluted Him! GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS

This well narrated story takes you as close to combat as you'd ever want to be.
A great listen, to a great story, about a great man.

The book really had me from the beginning, well written and the base story was good.
This is set in the Mekong delta and portrays the riverine activities of the 'brown river navy'.
It is written in the 3rd person, presumably as Wentz is a SEAL not a writer. This is OK, but i found myself wondering how much of the action was 100% accurate as a result.
It's written like most of these books in a mix of hoo-rah chest beating and God and country ideals. Normally I don't find this as distracting, but here it grates a little. Perhaps due to the 3rd person?
Overall it's a good addition to the genre, but not the best about the SEALs in Vietnam (SOG: the secret wars of America's commandos in Vietnam is a good recommendation, but not available from Audible).
