Charles W. Sasser served in the U.S. Army Special Forces (Green Berets) and was also a combat correspondent in Vietnam and Central America, where he was wounded in action.From Booklist:
This monograph from a prolific author who has been a police officer, teacher, U.S. Navy journalist, and U.S. Army Special Forces soldier covers the Navy Seals from their World War II predecessors (e.g., Alamo Scouts, Underwater demolition teams) to their present units and service in Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, the Persian Gulf War, and Bosnia. Coverage includes organization, personnel, equipment, weapons, terms, and training.
More than 300 alphabetical entries vary from a paragraph to several pages in length. There are numerous cross-references at the end of each entry. About 50 black-and-white photographs illustrate the volume and are appropriately placed throughout the text. Assisting readers is a select bibliography with approximately 100 citations to books, periodicals, and one Web site. An examination of the bibliography shows the citations to be current and representative of the substantial amount of literature available. Rounding out the reference is a detailed index. Within the index, boldface page numbers represent main entries, and italics denote illustrations.
This reference will be popular with military aficionados, scholars, and general readers. Although there are dozens of books regarding the Navy Seals, this is the only reference in an encyclopedia format. This volume should be considered for acquisition by high-school, public, and academic libraries. RBB
