To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.

On souffre avec eux mais quel courage! Quelle force et un mental tellement énorme pour suivre ce training de l'enfer! Whaooouhh....et quelles photos!....prises sur le vif et dans l'effort! Bravo à l'auteur pour son travail et à ces hommes qui essayent d'intégrer avec coeur cette unité d'élite !
The following is from a guy who isn't in any of the pictures but suffered through every scene captured. Now, I am one of the truly "old guys", Class 41, Coronado. I can state equivalently that the exhaustion, pain, fear and unimaginable cold depicted is exactly as I remember it.
Training is a long and arduous test of the physical and emotional depths of each tadpole. The third test is heart, or one's grit. Most succumb to an insufficient depth of either physical or emotional strength. Those few who graduate are the ones with the necessary grit. The captions on the pages capture the size of the obstacle between success and failure. The pictures vividly detail what it takes to just accomplish the day's training. Look into each man's eyes and you will experience the depth of the grit it takes to finish the day. In this era of "everybody gets a trophy" and everybody is a "hero" of some sort, it is humbling to see what truly uncommon men can endure and succeed in accomplishing.
I found this book to be very compelling and an incredible account of what BUD/S is like from a pictorial standpoint. From the expressions that were captured on film to the grueling training, it's a standout record of what it's like to go through Ph 1 of being a Navy SEAL.
I bought this book, like many books written or created by former service members to support the author. The photos are really interesting and tell a story that I am sure many former BUD/S candidates and SEALS will remember for better or for worse. It shows a group of individuals who work hard, and are a part of something many of us will never understand but I rest in my home knowing these folks are out there. Thank you.
