In this thrilling memoir, "the father of the US Navy SEALs" tells his story of founding the most effective and feared fighting force ever conceived (Sedgwick Tourison Jr., author of Secret Army, Secret War).

When President John F. Kennedy pressed Congress about America's "urgent national needs" in 1961, two particular objectives would stand out in the ways they changed our nation: putting a man on the moon, and expanding the scope of US special operations forces.

Cpt. William Hamilton was tasked with creating the finest unconventional warriors ever seen. With experience commanding Navy Underwater Demolition Teams as well as from Army Special Forces and the CIA - and working with his subordinate, Roy Boehm - he cast the mold for sea, air, and land dispatched warriors capable of completing any mission anywhere. Initially, they were used to counter the potential of nuclear war, and later for counterterrorism and hostage rescue.

Here, the man most responsible for modern American special operations and Charles W. Sasser - the bestselling author of One Shot One Kill - deliver "a most revealing documentary account and living history of the Special Ops . . . By the end, you will know and feel what it was like to be a night fighter from Korea all the way to SEAL Team 6" (Chimp Robertson, author of POW/MIA: America's Missing Men).
