'An eye-widening, fascinating memoir of a young man's sentimental education in the fine arts of infiltrating ' denied areas, ' blowing things up, slashing a few throats, and otherwise visiting mayhem on the bad guys . . . frank, well-written, and memorable.' --Kirkus Reviews 'From the Hardcover edition.'
From the Inside Flap
"Since the first navy frogmen crawled onto the beaches of Normandy, no SEAL has ever surrendered," writes Chuck Pfarrer. "No SEAL has ever been captured, and not one teammate or body has ever been left in the field. This legacy of valor is unmatched in modern warfare."
Warrior Soul is a book about the warrior spirit, and it takes the reader all over the world. Former Navy SEAL Chuck Pfarrer recounts some of his most dangerous assignments: On a clandestine reconnaissance mission on the Mosquito Coast, his recon team plays a deadly game of cat and mouse with a Nicaraguan patrol boat. Cut off on the streets of Beirut, the author's SEAL detachment must battle snipers on the Green Line. In the mid-Atlantic, Pfarrer's unit attempts to retrieve--or destroy--the booster section of a Trident ballistic missile before it can be recovered by a Russian spy trawler. On a runway in Sicily, his assault element surrounds an Egyptian airliner carrying the Achille Lauro hijackers.
These are only a few of the riveting stories of combat patrol, reconnaissance missions, counter-terrorist operations, tragedies, and victories in "Warrior Soul that illustrate the SEAL maxim "The person who will not be defeated cannot be defeated."

The author tells his stroy from his training in the BUD/S program to his deployment in different parts of the world such as Beirut, etc.
I recommended this to anyone interested in the SEALs or special forces, or just military action in general.
The others being , Simon Murray's, Legionnaire , Peter Ratcliffes Eye of the storm, Eric Haney Inside delta Force. A very enjoyable read without any silly stuff.
Chuck Pfarrer recounts his years on and under the waves, in Beirut, South America and any number of nameless, dusty places in a way that's neither humble nor bragging. He gives credit where credit is due, recalls cowardice in others and failure in himself. Above all, he comes across as a real live human being rather than a two dimensional warrior cliche. Which is odd because he went on to write the movie Navy SEALs, a gung ho hunk of junk about two dimensional warrior cliches. I forgive you for the movie, Chuck. Your life story more than makes up for it. Should have made a film out of this instead.
