Navy Seals: A History of the Early Years

Kevin Dockery, Author, Bud W. Brutsman, Foreword by Berkley Publishing Group $22.95 (358p) ISBN 978-0-425-17825-6
A collection of oral histories knitted together with carefully researched narrative, Navy SEALs: A History of the Early Years traces the sea, air and land force's evolution from its WWII precursors to its current highly trained, high-tech incarnations. Author Kevin Dockery worked with the UDT (Underwater Demolition Team)/ SEAL Museum Association ( to compile testimony and photos, and to synthesize archival material. The result is a highly acronymed, highly patriotic account of a superior, secretive fighting force.
