The Unknown Heroes
The world is in flames once more -- and war demands its terrible tribute in blood. Many have already fallen in freedom's cause -- and the Navy's crack Underwater Demolition Team has paid dearly in wounded and the dead. Meticulously trained amphibious commandos, they silently stalk the enemy in his own waters. In turbulent seas they are tested and they triumph, unaware that their success and courageous sacrifice are being noted at the nation's highest levels -- giving rise to glorious legend . . . and to the birth of the most awesome elite fighting force America has ever known.
