Publisher's Summary

In recent years the world has learned just what is required to bravely serve America through SEAL Team Six. Now, for the first time, we hear from their commander.
As a 23-year veteran of the United States Navy SEAL Teams, Ryan Zinke received two Bronze Stars for battle valor and eventually rose to command the elite members of SEAL Team Six. During his career Zinke trained and commanded many of the men who would one day run the covert operations to hunt down Osama bin Laden and save Captain Phillips (Maersk Alabama). He also served as mentor to now famous SEALs Marcus Luttrell (Lone Survivor) and Chris Kyle (American Sniper).
Written with the number-one New York Times best-selling coauthor of American Sniper, Scott McEwen, American Commander will offer listeners the hard-hitting, no-nonsense style the SEALs are known for.
When Zinke signs with the US Navy, he turns his sights on joining the ranks of the most elite fighting force, the SEALs. He eventually reaches the top of the SEAL Teams as an assault team commander at SEAL Team Six. Zinke shares what it takes to train and motivate the most celebrated group of warriors on earth and then send them into harm's way. Through it, he shares his proven problem-solving approach: situation, mission, execution, command and control, logistics.
American Commander also covers Zinke's experience in running for Montana's sole seat in the US Congress. Zinke's passion for his country shines as he conveys his vision to revitalize American exceptionalism.
Scott McEwen and Ryan Zinke take listeners behind the scenes and into the heart of America's most-feared fighting force. American Commander will inspire a new generation of leaders charged with restoring a bright future for our children's children.

Really disappointing

I thought this would be a memoir about operational missions and insight into SEAL indoctrination program and training. Instead it was a self intellectual jerk off on the authors personal politics. Really too bad.

Way to much political garbage

I was expecting a Navy seal book not someone talking politics for several hours...:(
One of the worst military books I have ever read.
