9780593072530: Damn Few: Making the Modern SEAL Warrior

Rorke Denver trains the men who become Navy SEALs—the most creative problem solvers on the modern battlefield, ideal warriors for the kinds of wars America is fighting now. With his years of action-packed mission experience and top training role, Lieutenant Commander Denver understands exactly how tomorrow’s soldiers are recruited, sculpted, motivated, and deployed.

Now, Denver takes you inside his fascinating personal story and the demanding SEAL training program he oversees. Arriving as a young SEAL hopeful. Pushing his way through the crucible of Hell Week. Turning himself into a lethal warrior for America, then leading his SEAL brothers on dangerous stealth missions around the globe. Preparing the next generation of SEALs for their “Hero or Zero” missions to come.

In startling detail, Denver reveals how the SEALs’ high-impact operations became front and center in America’s War on Terror—and how these modern warriors are altering warfare everywhere.

About the Author:

In fourteen years as a SEAL officer, Rorke Denver tangled with drug lords in Latin America, stood up to violent mobs in Liberia, and battled terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan. Leading 200 commando missions, he earned the Bronze Star with V for valor. He has spent the past four years at the Navy Special Warfare Center in Coronado, California, directing all phases of the basic and advanced training that prepare men for war in SEAL teams. He recently starred in the film Act of Valor. He is married and has two daughters.

Review:

"Here is the rare book that changes the lives of young men and the views of older ones. Intense, riveting, inspiring and humbling. Damn few make it. Damn few can do what the SEALs do."―Hugh Hewitt

"If you've ever wished you could read the testament of a Jedi knight, here it is. Damn Few takes us inside the mind of a born warrior. LtCdr Denver has trained SEALs and led them in combat. He tells us what it takes to reach the super-elite level, why he does it, what it means to him, what he thinks the future holds. This is timeless stuff, worthy of being read in the era of Caesar, Alexander, Leonidas--or a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away."―Steven Pressfield, author of Gates of Fire and The War of Art
