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.

Then Marcinko was tapped to create Red Cell, a dirty-dozen team of the military's most accomplished and decorated counterterrorists. Their unbelievable job was to test the defenses of the Navy's most secure facilities and installations. The result was predictable: all hell broke loose.

Here is the hero who saw beyond the blood to ultimate justice -- and the decorated warrior who became such a maverick that the Navy brass wanted his head on a pole, and for a time, got it. Richard Marcinko -- ROGUE WARRIOR.

BOAD (Bit of a Dick ... Marcinko)

Self absorption at its finest (bonafide narcissist) Misplaced braggadocio, chest thumper extaordinaire Bragging about renegade, buck the system behavior is somewhat universally admired, but bragging about exploits in infidelity only expose Marcinko's true character, even more than the obsession with bloodlust in the name of god and country. Marcinko writes to justify, but there is a sense that even he isn't buying what he's selling.

Great beginning and explains how the founder of SEAL Team 6 had created chaos and mixed emotions in SpecWar and Naval Community; and made reputation of the team today... much controversy surrounds Capt Marcinko and his "Merry Merauders ", but certainly has my respect, and appreciation of exposing a very whipped government.

This book from beginning to its end is a balls to the wall account of one man's rise to make a difference and his demise by the same Navy he worked for. There's nothing sweet about this book it is hard, in your face and has a 'I don't give a damn what you think' attitude about it. From within its pages you feel the heart and soul of a man driven to make a difference. Plus, you have a man who cares about the mission, his men and himself in that order. Excellent book and a very inspiring read!
