Abstract:

They are the warrior elite of the United States military, Trained to endure any hardship, overcome any obstacle, and conquer any adversary to accomplish their objectives, they are a fighting force without equal. They are the Navy Seals. From the shores of Normandy to the jungles of Vietnam to more recent conflicts in the Middle East, the Navy Seals and their predecessors have played a pivotal role in the development of modern military technology. Renowned as much for their technical prowess as their deadly skill in combat, the Seals have not only been the first to test weapons in the field, they have also expertly modified and refined them according to the demands of battle, making them their own. For the first time, this painstakingly researched volume covers the weapons and ammunition that have served the seals in combat operations around the globe. Much more than a mere catalog of arms, it traces each weapon from the development stage to its current form. Also included are exclusive accounts from the men who were among the first to see these weapons used in armed conflict. Written with the cooperation of th UDT/SEAL Museum Association in Florida, packed with detailed information and photos-some never before in print-this book offers fresh insight into the technology that for decades has sustained the Navy seals as an unstoppable military force.
