Click to EnlargeTHE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF THE NAVY SEALS. by Charles Sasser. From the jungles of Vietnam to the shores of Panama to the sands of Iraq, the U.S. Navy SEALs are the most fearsome and effective special operations force in the world. SEAL is an acronym for SeaAirLand, the three elements in which the units operate in unconventional forces that range from as few as six men to as many as a platoon of one hundred. The Encyclopedia of the Navy SEALs is the complete reference guide on this unique organization of American warriors. An introduction documents the history of the formation of the Navy SEALs, starting with the pre-SEAL days of the WWII Underwater Demolition Teams, the Alamo Scouts of the Pacific, and the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) up to the actual formation of the Navy SEALs in 1962 under President John F. Kennedy. From here, the introduction traces the evolution of the SEALs' formation into modern unconventional counter terrorists and guerilla fighters. 50 black-and-white photographs. Index. Bibliography. Cross references 288 Pages. 8 1/2 X 11. In more than 300 entries, author Charles Sasser presents an A to Z study of the Navy SEALs-their origins, the organization, histories, personnel, equipment, weapons, dictionary of terms, and much more, providing a one-of-a-kind look into this uniquely American fighting force. Coverage includes ambush, amphibious scouts and raiders, booby traps, camouflage gear, frogmen, guerrilla warfare, ?Hell Week,? Mao Tse-tung, Naval Combat Demolition Units (NCDUs), obstacle-avoidance sonar, Operation Desert Storm, Roger?s Rangers, SCUBA, submarine operations, Vietnam War, and war games.
