With a postscript describing SEAL efforts in Afghanistan, The Warrior Elite takes you into the toughest, longest, and most relentless military training in the world. What does it take to become a Navy SEAL? What makes talented, intelligent young men volunteer for physical punishment, cold water, and days without sleep? In The Warrior Elite, former Navy SEAL Dick Couch documents the process that transforms young men into warriors. SEAL training is the distillation of the human spirit, a tradition-bound ordeal that seeks to find men with character, courage, and the burning desire to win at all costs, men who would rather die than quit.

The Snake in the Desert The first generation of SEALs was forged in the steaming jungles of Vietnam, their deadly skills honed by combat. But jealousy brewing within the U.S. military bureaucracy threatened the future of the warrior elite, and shortsighted thinking forced them into pitched battles in Grenada and Panama that the SEALs shouldn't have fought and couldn't have won. Now the opportunity has finally come for redemption when the tanks of a ruthless Middle Eastern despot roll across the unprotected borders of a neighboring nation. Here, in a world of blood and oil, a new generation of SEALs is going in first to fight a new kind of war on its terms -- as Hunter–Killer teams of America's deadliest commandos plunge into a fast and murderous game of hide-seek-and-strike on Iraqi sands.

Putting into question the conventional view that the military is detrimental to democratic development, Dolman provides a multifaceted examination of the institutional incentives of the military and its relations with civilian authorities. Drawing on classical political theory, a wide range of historical examples, and statistical findings, The Warrior State argues that the military can facilitate democracy as the result of specific norms and conditions that focus on individual action. Ironically, this may be best inculcated through a focus on the offensive, precisely the military doctrine commonly seen as most likely to result in international conflict. The paradox of offensive strategies possibly increasing international conflict while also enhancing democracy, which is supposed to decrease such conflict, from a core of this provocative book.

Am 17. Mai 2014 wandte sich Admiral William H. McRaven an die Abschlussklasse der University of Texas in Austin. Inspiriert vom Slogan der Universität "Was hier anfängt, verändert die Welt", teilte er die zehn wichtigsten Lektionen, die er während seines Navy-Seal-Trainings fürs Leben gelernt hat. Sie halfen ihm nicht nur, die Herausforderungen im Training und in seiner langen Karriere zu meistern, sondern erwiesen sich auch im Privaten als hilfreich. Er erklärte, wie jeder diese grundlegenden Lehren nutzen kann, um sich – und die Welt – zum Besseren zu verändern. Admiral McRavens ursprüngliche Rede ging viral: Das zugehörige Video wurde auf YouTube millionenfach angesehen. In dem Weltbestseller Mach dein Bett baut McRaven auf den zehn Prinzipien aus seiner Rede auf, erzählt Geschichten aus seinem Leben und berichtet von Menschen, denen er während seines Militärdienstes begegnet ist. Er schildert, wie er sich mit Entbehrungen auseinandersetzte und harte Entscheidungen mit Entschlossenheit, Mitgefühl und Mut traf. Dieses Buch bietet einfache und universelle Weisheiten, praktische Ratschläge und Worte der Ermutigung, die dazu inspirieren, auch in den dunkelsten Momenten des Lebens optimistisch zu bleiben und nach mehr zu streben.
