Descripton: Unarmed, underwater, under fire-they went to war, and began the legend of the navy seals. Facing a fanatical, dug-in enemy in Europe and in the Pacific, U.S. planners turned to a new kind of warrior: daring swimmers who could knock out mines, map out enemy beaches, and pave the way for Allied naval assaults. With a few extraordinary and brave men, the U.S. Navy's Underwater Demolition Teams went to war. Now, a founder and legendary commander of UDT-1 takes you into the world of the underwater soldiers-the bullet-ripped surf, the mortar-pounded beaches, and the treacherous, frigid seas. This is the inside story of a unique breed of warrior-and the bloody battles they helped win.
