From Booklist
In this worthwhile addition to oral history, 15 SEALs tell their stories, concentrating on their combat experiences in Vietnam. The 15 include a few reasonably well known Vietnam veterans, such as combat author Richard Marcinko and Rudy Boesch, who has served in special operations probably longer than any other American, and also officers and men who spent only a few years with the SEALs but remember them ineradicably. They are definitely men who have walked a little or a long way apart from where most of us go, and their stories are not for the weak of stomach or the politically correct. The strong stomached and incorrect, especially those interested in the SEALs, will, however, find the book eminently readable throughout, for it adds considerably to our knowledge of those amphibious warriors.

The book was okay but very repetitive, it's made up of stories from several different soldiers and they all tell basically the same account of "Hell Week". It has a few insights into the problems they and the people who lived there had to endure but basically it was bland and uneventful. I would not recommend it.
