Product Description

Review

'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."

"From the Hardcover edition.

Many books about special forces tend to be gung ho Rambo like,not this one.If you prefer a feet on the ground,real world story by a former Navy SEAL,with no need to overdo his story, then this book is highly recommended.I would have liked to rate this book 4.7 stars.

I was very surprised by the author's objectivity as well as his writing skills. Soldiers are not know for their ability with the pen, especially special forces soldiers. The book is very well written, evenly paced and, even though it is told from a first person narrative, incredibly objective. There is no grandstanding or ego trips (compare this to a Dick Marcinko book for example), just the author's experience and his views, related as disspasionately as possible. Yet it manages to be a very interesting and thrilling read. So the objective tone does not detract from the experience at all, quite the contrary, it helps enhance it through its honesty. My only complain was the the book ended too soon for me (even thought it's 314 pages long).

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.

This had the potential to be a great book with some fantastic insights into the training regime that a prospective seal goes through. However, I got the feeling that a great deal of what the author experienced he held back because of the classfied nature of some of the work he undoubtedly undertook. Therefore the book felt that it had been dumbed down somewhat. I also got the feeling that the author was being extremely modest in his achievements and never really gave the incites that I was craving into his operational deployments and the skills that he employed. Huge respect though for his undoubted intelligence and tenacity he displays in the most difficult of circumstances. Good luck Chuck.

There seem to be a lot of Seal and Delta force memoirs out there now. I think this one would rate with the best ones out there.

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.

One of the best military memoirs in US Special Forces I've ever read.Chuck really wrote a grim,down to earth,sometimes harrowing account of his tour of duty in the US Navy Seals.I would strongly recommend this book to anyone interested,and would gladly read it again and again.

In the early 80s, navy brat Chuck Pfarrer dropped out of uni and decided to join the Navy SEALs, an elite unit not known outside of military circles. On every other year, you needed to serve in other branches of the military before applying. That year, they took civilians as an experiment...
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.

I really enjoyed reading this book, i just wonder how much more chuck would have been able to tell us if he didnt have politics to deal with. I recommend this book to everyone, it gives a great insight into what war is really like! and not how tony blair or G.W. Bush see it!
