Excerpt from Damn Few by Rorke Denver and Ellis Henican.
Damn Few is a dramatic look inside the training of America's premier special-ops commando teams. Never before has such a high-level SEAL officer written with such candor and insight about the making of U.S. Navy SEALs. With his action-packed mission experience and top training role, Lieutenant Commander Rorke Denver understands exactly how tomorrow's warriors are recruited, trained, motivated, and deployed. In Damn Few, he explains the unique psychology behind the SEALs' legendary training program and reveals the modern techniques that turn these chosen men into lethal warriors. From his own SEAL training and wild missions overseas, Denver details how the SEALs' creative operations became front-and-center in America's War on Terror—and how they are altering warfare everywhere.
