SEAL Team Six by Howard E. Wasdin & Stephen Templin Book Summary

The New York Times bestselling book that takes you inside SEAL Team Six – the covert squad that killed Osama Bin Laden


SEAL Team Six is a secret unit tasked with counterterrorism, hostage rescue, and counterinsurgency. In this dramatic, behind-the-scenes chronicle, Howard Wasdin takes readers deep inside the world of Navy SEALS and Special Forces snipers, beginning with the grueling selection process of Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S)—the toughest and longest military training in the world.

After graduating, Wasdin faced new challenges. First there was combat in Operation Desert Storm as a member of SEAL Team Two. Then the Green Course: the selection process to join the legendary SEAL Team Six, with a curriculum that included practiced land warfare to unarmed combat. More than learning how to pick a lock, they learned how to blow the door off its hinges. Finally as a member of SEAL Team Six he graduated from the most storied and challenging sniper program in the country: The Marine's Scout Sniper School. Eventually, of the 18 snipers in SEAL Team Six, Wasdin became the best—which meant one of the best snipers on the planet.

Less than half a year after sniper school, he was fighting for his life. The mission: capture or kill Somalian warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid. From rooftops, helicopters and alleys, Wasdin hunted Aidid and killed his men whenever possible. But everything went quickly to hell when his small band of soldiers found themselves fighting for their lives, cut off from help, and desperately trying to rescue downed comrades during a routine mission. The Battle of Mogadishu, as it become known, left 18 American soldiers dead and 73 wounded. Howard Wasdin had both of his legs nearly blown off while engaging the enemy. His dramatic combat tales combined with inside details of becoming one of the world's deadliest snipers make this one of the most explosive military memoirs in years.

SEAL Team Six (Howard E. Wasdin & Stephen Templin) Book Reviews

Grateful to Seal Team 6!I thoroughly enjoyed reading Black Hawk Down few years ago & when I saw Wasdin's Seal Team Six, I knew it had to read as well & I was not disappointed. Full of action, compassion & dedication, Howard's writing is easy to read & makes me feel very proud of & grateful for these hard working, amazingly fit individuals. His story also highlights the importance of TEAMWORK & what can happen when it works & when you do not have a team. I am also reminded that there are as many sides to any situation as there are individuals & Howard's seal training prepared him for all of those sides. Glad he is still around & he was able to write his story..Score: 5/5

Seal Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy SEAL SniperOutstanding book ! Seriously the best book on Navy SEALs (ST6) to be exact. The real hard cover book has about 260 pages, (not to sure but around that number) but when reading the e-book on an iPhone it's 1045 pages due to the smaller screen so don't be surprised if you read about 150 or 200 pages at a time it's only because, the pages are smaller, but it's still the same as if your reading the real book. I was able to finish the book in about two (2) weeks, it was just to good of a book to put down. The story is great detailing the life of Dr. Howard E. Wasdin as a child all the way through BUD/S, SEAL Team 2 and 6 up to the present on his life as a chiropractor and detailing his family life and combat battles and injuries. If your looking for a great book on the life inside an ST6 operative, and reading actual facts about The Battle of Mogadishu a.k.a. "Black Hawk Down" through real experiences then Seal Team Six by: Howard Wasdin is an absolute perfect book for you !.Score: 5/5

Seal Team SixI loved this book up to the point where he described the fight at the Body Shop. Then the BS flag went up. I have been a Norfolk Police officer for over 34 years and if a fight of that epic proportions had occurred in Norfolk I would have heard about it. We talk about our battles just like the Seals do. A fight with multiple police officers hurt and a K9 dog hurt would be talked about for years and I have never heard of a fight like he described. So I went to the man who owned the Body Shops (there were four of them in Norfolk all owned by the same man) and I had him read the section about the fight. He said no fight like that ever happened in or around his clubs. I think Mr. Wesdin is a great man who has done many great things. I do not know if he was ever really in a fight at the Body Shop or not but if he was the story is embellished and he didn't need to do that. If that story is embellished then how much more of the book is embellished too? Otherwise it was a good read..Score: 3/5

Awesome bookThe inspiring story of Howard Wasdin, a true American Warrior. From childhood to his time as a Navy SEAL, and his current life as a chiropractor, this book keeps you hooked from the first page to the last.

SEAL Team SixExcellent read. I opened the book expecting a huge ego but found quiet the opposite. To become a Navy Seal it takes an extreme amount of self confidence. This often leads to egos and self importance. The author opened up to his flaws as a husband and father but was truly committed to his comrades. To leave the only thing he knew how to do and find a new life of happiness is an amazing story..Score: 5/5

Seal Team 6Wow, fascinating, exhilarating and page burning. I read it 150 - 200 pages at a time. Makes you feel like you're laying there in the prone position right next to them with one eye looking down the sight and the stock resting against your cheek. You get to KNOW Howard and you get to both cheer for him and cry with him. Forget the movie, find out what really happens when the perpetual feces hits the oscillating wind machine. This book will hook you on a new genre, leaving you wanting for more. If you've never read a military biography, especially from a ground combat vet, buy this book. Seal Team Six is the real deal..Score: 5/5

SEAL Team 6I don't get alot of time to read these days with work, family, and friends, but I could not put this book down. I have always beed interested in the SEALs after watching a series on the Military channel, but to get a first hand experieince of a SEAL mission was awesome. For a child to have to undures such trama as a child usually molds that person in the wrong direction in life. To his credit, he is a loving father that can show love for his kids while recieving none as a child. Awesome book. Must read..Score: 5/5

Not just a killing machine...A gripping read that goes beyond killing, showing that our nation's elite warriors are smart and have a moral compass. He illustrates that too often politicians fail to measure up to the task of leadership. I also give credit to the author for *not* trashing people by full name. (The exception being public figures whose every decision is out there for citizens to judge.) The author provides insight into training, preparation, and mission execution of the best of the best..Score: 5/5

SEAL Team 6- Pretty goodI just finished reading it and i noticed many of the reviewers didn't like the part about his first wife cheating on him. it was a small part at the end of a chapter. it wasn't like he only talked about it. what he said was that while he was gone his wife cheated on him and his relationship with his daughter grew very weak. thats it. Now in reference to the book, it was very informative. i found it especially interesting that the movie Black Hawk Down was based on the operation Wasdin took part in. In my opinion it is a good book and went into great detail about how hard he trained. In my opinion it is good read..Score: 4/5

This guy is a jarhead......but I love him. Such a great story of a life lived to its fullest. I could go on, but to sum it up, I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning about the life of a true hero in every respect. A brilliant person who found his own direction in life. He learned to be tough the hard way, and found that love and affection can be discovered if one is willing to allow it to be discovered. This is not just a book about Navy Seals, but about a man whose journey just gets started when all seems lost. A fascinating read..Score: 4/5

Amazing ReadI don't read much for pleasure mainly because I have to keep up on technical material based on my aviation career. With that being said i feel this is a must read, and I really had a difficult time putting it down. I went through every emotion as a human being as I progressed further and further into this eye opening book. What it takes to become a SEAL starts way before BUDs, and after the initial training is done it never stops....like a roller coaster that's kill switch has been disabled! Realizing how tough I'm not, this sacrifice and commitment these men make to their country is far beyond anything that your ordinary citizen can comprehend or appreciate for that matter. God Bless the Fighting Elite both living and decreased. I thank you from the bottom of my heart !.Score: 5/5
