The United States Navy SEAL teams were only founded as recently as 1962, on the orders of President John F. Kennedy, but they already have a reputation of one of the best special forces unit in the world. The U.S. Navy SEALs: From Vietnam to finding Bin Laden tells the story behind this famous unit.

The book begins with the SEALs origins in World War II, when the Navys Underwater Demolition Teams (UDTs) prepared beaches in Normandy and the Pacific for U.S. amphibious landings. The UDTs also served in the Korean War, but afterwards were neglected. A new conflict in Vietnam demanded a new type of unit, and the SEALs were born out the UDTs as a maritime special operations unit capable of a multitude of missions. The SEALs served with distinction in Southeast Asia, targeting the Vietcong infrastructure and earning a fearsome reputation.

Since the American withdrawal from Vietnam, the SEALs have seen action in Grenada, Panama, the Persian Gulf, Kuwait, Somalia, Bosnia and now Afghanistan and Iraq. The book describes the full combat record of the SEAL teams and details their organization, equipment, uniforms and insignia, as well as their famous operation to find Bin Laden.

Illustrated with black and white and color photographs and artworks, and with an authoritative text, The U.S. Navy SEALs: From Vietnam to Finding Bin Laden is a definitive history of one of Americas elite fighting units.
