Book Description

1 Mar 1994
In the smash bestselling autobiography "Rogue Warrior," Richard Marcinko chronicled his controversial thirty-year career in the U.S. Navy's elite maritime commandos, the SEAL teams. Marcinko rose through the ranks to create and command the Navy's legendary counterterrorist unit, SEAL TEAM SIX, scoring vitories against enemies all over the globe.Pleased with his success, the chief of Naval Operations ordered him to create RED CELL -- a dirty-dozen team of SEALs whose mission was to infiltrate the Navy's most secure installations. Marcinko did his job too well. No Navy base was safe -- no commander's billet secure. His reward was a year in a federal penitentiary.

During that year, Marcinko and John Weisman wrote "RogueWarrior." But, bound by government restrictions on classified information, Marcinko was only able to tell a fraction of his incredible story. The tales he could not tell, the secrets he could not reveal, now explode on the page as the Rogue Warrior returns in the blockbuster suspense novel of the year -- a novelwith him as the hero!

He is the enemy's worst nightmare, living by the untimate commandment of unconventional warfare -- win, by any means.He is brash, brazen, and possessed equally of a killer charm and the capacity to become a stone-cold killer.As "ROGUE WARRIOR II: RED CELL" begins, Dick Marcinko is a freelance security consultant, playing terrorist at Tokyo's Narita Airport. Easily penetratingthe facility's defenses, he engages in a deadly firefight with North Korean operatives --and makes a discovery that plunges him into a secret war for America's national security.

Financed by traitorous Americans, smugglers are transferring nuclear materials toNorth Korea through Japan. Former Secretary of Defense Grant Griffith, a behind the scenes power in the Pentagon, believes that only the Rogue Warrior can stop the operation; he convinces the Navy to recall Marcinko involuntarily to command RED CELL. Marcinko is a legent to the SEALs of RED CELL, and they're willing to follow him into hell -- to go anywhere and do anything to crush those who would betray America for a price.

From infiltrating Washington's Navy Yard offices and the Navy's top-secret nuclear weapons depot in Seal Beach, California, to raiding a North Korean Navy base in the most heavily guarded harbor in Asia, to a final assault on a target far out in the Pacific, the Rogue Warrior and his marauding SEALs fight incredible odds and increasingly dangerous enemies.And, as time runs out, "ROGUE WARRIOR II: RED CELL" races to its electrifying climax.

Format:Audio Cassette
This is Marcinko`s second book, and here he begins to write fiction. After a while, he repeats himself, but if you like this book you just have to read all the others.
The book starts when Marcinko gets out of jail, and is forced back in the navy, to resume his duty as commander of the red cell. The story is thrilling and funny. If you have experience from the military, the book is even more interesting, since the author gives you a lot of info about do`s and don`ts in the world of warfare.
If the story is fiction or not is up to you to decide. Begin reading this books first, since its the most entertaining in the series, and then take on Rogue Warrior.

No comment. Why do I need to fill this out when I have already rated the goods above? The rating should speak for itself. Would I buy some more? Yes. There, that should fill up the space.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ass-ripping, ball jarring fly by the seat of your pants BOOK 29 Jun 1996
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
PLEASE BE WARNED, this is not a book that you will read every now and then over the next few months. This is a book that is guarranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat every second that you hold it in your hands. You WILL HAVE to continue to read this book unitl the very end, because it sucks you into the role, you become, think, and mentally act like Richard Marcinko, a thirty year veteren in the U.S. Navy's elite maritime commandos, and the creator of the Navy's legendary countererrorist unit SEAL TEAM 6. I personally took off a days work in order to read this book from cover to cover and I was not dissappionted at all. After reading this book I went through withdrawal pains waiting for his next book. I vow that if you even read one page of this non stop thriller, you to will become addicted to the unique writng styles of Richard Marcinko and John Weisman. For all of you modern day and wannabe warriors out there, read this book for it is the bible of Special Warfare, it will give you some of the unique mental and physical demands and outlooks of the worlds most deadly fighting force the Navy SEALS!!!! Trust me, just buy the book and enjoy the thing!! Page one of this novel list Richard Marcinkos 10 commandment of SPECWAR nad two of them apply right now to you dear reader, #1thou shalt never assume (This means you, do not assume that this is like any other book for it is not) and #2 Thou hast not to like it- thou hast just to do it (Just buy the book, you will love it

4.0 out of 5 stars Intrigue, suspense, action. Vintage Marcinko 26 Oct 2000
By J-Dog - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This one picks up shortly after Rogue Warrior ends. However, this is purely fiction. And, I tell you, the detail in which Marcinko gets is absolutely mesmerizing. You're there with ol' Demo Dick and his merry band of marauders as they conduct a number of field exercises intended to show just how fragile the security at some military bases can be. Later, you're dodging bullets alongside Marcinko and his deadly band of SEALS as they storm an oil platform to take down a group of terrorists as ol' Demo Dick can. If you're new to the series, start off with Rogue Warrior, then pick this one up, and keep reading the rest of the Rogue Warrior series. With the exception of Designation Gold, you won't get bored for a single page-turning minute.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the original Rogue Warrior 16 Dec 2003
By Eric Rucker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I waited for this book to come out after enthusiastically reading the original "Rogue Warrior." I thought Red Cell was good...well you might say it was "OK." But it certainly didnt have the drama of the very first Rogue Warrior book.
As a sidenote which might interest other readers, I was told by one of the characters of the first Rogue Warrior that "Red Cell was more true than the original Rogue Warrior." I was told this by Jim Watson when I was visiting the UDT/SEAL museum in Fort Pierce, FL in 1994. He didnt go into any specific details and I didnt ask. After hearing Jim Watson make this comment to me in his office, I have since wondered how much (or how little) is really true in ANY of the Rogue Warrior series of books.
Honestly, my advice is after youve read the first Rogue Warrior book, youve basically read them all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good But............ 14 May 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Is this guy ever in love with himself. If you can over look this, no small feat I might add, one of the better books out there of its type. I have to wonder even though this is a work of 'fiction' if this book isn't based of some truth. I live in Virginia, very close to where much of the story takes place. The attention to detail is uncanny. Road names and route numbers, towns, stores, inns, bars are right where he says they are. How do I know? I've been to most of them. So read the book, but be warned about his ego.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Action whether it is true or not 21 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Marcinko is a genius in SpecWar. Even his enemies would admit that he is one of the best warriors that the USA has ever produced. Marcinko has lived it, unlike Clancy or Coonts. He is a true warrior. This book and everyone in the Rogue Warrior series proves that he is a professional killer during conflict. If you are a whimp don't read his books, they are not for you. Go read something by Jackie Collins or Steven King.
