“Since the first navy frogmen crawled onto the beaches of Normandy, no SEAL has ever surrendered,” writes Chuck Pfarrer. “No SEAL has ever been captured, and not one teammate or body has ever been left in the field. This legacy of valor is unmatched in modern warfare.”


Warrior Soul
is a book about the warrior spirit, and it takes the reader all over the world. Former Navy SEAL Chuck Pfarrer recounts some of his most dangerous assignments: On a clandestine reconnaissance mission on the Mosquito Coast, his recon team plays a deadly game of cat and mouse with a Nicaraguan patrol boat. Cut off on the streets of Beirut, the author’s SEAL detachment must battle snipers on the Green Line. In the mid-Atlantic, Pfarrer’s unit attempts to retrieve—or destroy—the booster section of a Trident ballistic missile before it can be recovered by a Russian spy trawler. On a runway in Sicily, his assault element surrounds an Egyptian airliner carrying the Achille Lauro hijackers.

These are only a few of the riveting stories of combat patrol, reconnaissance missions, counter-terrorist operations, tragedies, and victories in Warrior Soul that illustrate the SEAL maxim “The person who will not be defeated cannot be defeated.”

Chuck Pfarrer shares the attributes required to become a Navy Seal and then goes on to describe his life and thoughts as he served as a Navy Seal. We see him go through training, and then on assignment in places such as the middle east. He shares a few difficult situations and we feel the rush of adrenaline, cheer for our extraordinarily brave servicemen, and then see them deal with the wounds and the stress afterwards. He also shares humorous moments such as hanging out in a little bar in Delaware populated by lots of competitive testosterone between the clients -- seals, special ops, rangers, etc. i can hear the ZZ Top and Nine Inch Nails now. Finally, he was equally open about his own emotional and mental states, as he shares with us a series of relationships with women and lets us see how he grows emotionally.I recommend this book highly. It's especially good when read along with 'One Bullet Away: The Making of a Marine' which tells the story of a much younger man making it into an elite unit, serving, and then leaving while still young. Chuck has a much longer career and the contrast between the two authors is striking.Very highly recommended. (Especially for us girls who love alpha males!)read more

Captivating book. Tells of the authors experiences as a Navy SEAL and the effect of this lifestyle on himself and ultimately his family. It ended too abruptly for me. It seemed like the author left me hanging. Toward the end of the book he implies that he made some revelations about himself and his life but doesn't share them.read more
