Abstract:

In America's battle against al-Qaeda and their allies, the goal of the Navy SEALs is to be the best guns in the fight--stealthy, effective, professional, and lethal. In this book Couch, himself a former Navy SEAL and CIA case officer, brings firsthand accounts from the warriors in combat during key missions. "Down range" is what SEALs in Afghanistan and Iraq call their area of operations, and it can refer to anything from tracking roving bands of al-Qaeda on a remote mountain trail in Afghanistan to taking down an armed compound in Tikrit to interdicting insurgents smuggling car-bomb explosives over the Iraqi-Syrian border. The SEALs, coordinating with other forces including foreign special operations units like the Polish GROM, have once more shown their genius for improvisation and capacity for courageous action.--From publisher description.
