ROGUE WARRIOR by Richard Marcinko & Jim DeFelice

A brilliant virtuoso of violence, Richard Marcinko rose through Navy ranks to create and command one of this country`s most elite and classified counterterrorist units, SEAL TEAM SIX. Now this thirty-year veteran recounts the secret missions and Special Warfare madness of his worldwide military career -- and the riveting truth about the top-secret Navy SEALs.

Marcinko was almost inhumanly tough, and proved it on hair-raising missions across Vietnam and a war-torn world: blowing up supply junks, charging through minefields, jumping at 19,000 feet with a chute that wouldn`t open, fighting hand-to-hand in a hellhole jungle. For the Pentagon, he organized the Navy`s first counterterrorist unit: the legendary SEAL TEAM SIX, which went on classified missions from Central America to the Middle East, the North Sea, Africa and beyond.
