9781557502667: The Naked Warriors: The Story of the U.S. Navy's Frogmen (Naval Institute Special Warfare Series)

Originally published in 1956, the new edition retains its classic standing as an insider view of the US Navy's Underwater Demolition Teams (UDTs) operations during World War II and in Korea. Fane developed the training and operational techniques used in World War II amphibious campaigns and laid the groundwork for today's SEALS. Chronicling his experiences and those of other UDT experts, he walks the reader through scouting missions in mined reefs and under fire, clearing invasion approaches before assault. Because of the dramatic content it's not surprising that Moore, who coauthored the book, was head of the story and script department at CBS Television. No bibliography. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Review:

Naked Warriors is the candid story of the U. S. Navy's frogmen and provides a much-needed history filling a gap in the subject for any with a special interest in Naval history. Written by one of the founders of UDT operations, this documents acts of heroism, combat duty, and UDT experiences. -- Midwest Book Review
