US Navy SEALs, Paperback / softback Book

US Navy SEALs Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Michael Welply

Part of the Elite series


After the United States' failures in special operations missions during the late 1970s and 1980, a decision was made to revamp its unconventional capabilities.

On May 1, 1983, all Underwater Demolition Teams were redesignated as SEAL Teams or Swimmer Delivery Vehicle Teams.

Since 1983 these Navy Special Warfare (NSW) forces have operated in Grenada, the Persian Gulf, Panama, Somalia, Bosnia, Haiti, and Liberia.

NSW units have also participated in the ongoing missions of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and Operations Iraqi Freedom in Iraq.

This book looks at the history, organisation, training, uniforms, equipment and missions of the US Navy SEALs since their redesignation in 1983 until the recent conflict in the Gulf.
