    1. This account of the travails of a group of naval officers and sailors, starting with nearly a hundred who want to become SEALs and ending with ten or so actually making it through the initial training the SEAL version of boot camp, really, although they ve all been through either Navy boot camp or the Naval Academy already is a grinding read I saw SEALs a few times during my own 20 years in the Marine Corps, and I d read some things about them, but I didn t know this much about them before readi [...]


    2. The Warrior Elite shows the SEAL s training up close and personal, including all the struggles and obstacles that these men have to overcome.This book starts off at the basic BUD S training of students and what kind of exercises they have to proceed threw and each exercise has a requirement These SEAL s in training have only a short period of time to comprehend and preform the skills that they are being taught by their instructors As time goes on the amount of people they are surrounded by vanis [...]


    3. What does it take to make a warrior Author and former SEAL Dick Couch documents the training process for SEAL teams by following a class of prospective SEALs as they advance through the BUD s course.The Warrior Elite describes in great detail the torture prospective SEALs undergo to prove themselves as warriors, as well as the practice and education that they receive to work effectively as a team As many others on have said, this book does a great job at making the reader understand the torture [...]


    4. The Warrior Elite was a very interesting book that never seemed to have a dull moment It presented the information in a very straightforward way that was easy to understand A GoodReads user sarcastically said, Nice light reading if you re in the mood for military propaganda attached to a two star rating I do not agree with this as this is a nonfiction book and the events depicted in this book are being depicted exactly how they happened Further the military is not glorified in this book, in fact [...]


    5. The Warrior Elite by Dick Couch is about the many adventures and journeys of SEAL Class 228 It takes the reader through them going through basic camp to become a SEAL all the way to the SEALS in combat I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the military whether it be hearing stories or just learning about it Overall I was not a big fan of this book because throughout the story there were very boring parts that felt like nothing was going on It was hard for me to stay focused [...]


    6. Author and former SEAL, Dick Couch, documents the training process for SEAL teams by following a class of men as they go through all the struggles and obstacles that they need to overcome in the BUD S course This book does a great job of describing the men s daily life during training to become warriors Without having to physically go through Hell Week like the trainees, the reader could easily understand the torture and pain during the training thanks to the author.Just like how many reviews in [...]


    7. This is a study of US Navy Seal training, following the progress of a particular class There is a lot of talk about how training has changed since the author was an active duty Navy Seal in Vietnam I am no expert AT ALL and am definitely not a military person But Class 228 is special as they are a good example of those who were undergoing the beginning of their training before and around the time of 9 11 The fact that Marc Luttrell, author of Lone Survivor , is among the graduates of class 228 i [...]


    8. I think I enjoyed this book a lot mainly because of the fact that I could relate to a lot of what these men had to go through as a team Obviously what I could relate to was not the fact that what I do is on the same difficulty level, but the fact that what I do focuses on a lot of the same concepts One good example is that to accomplish something big you have to come together with a group, and work together as one, and if one person is dragging everybody down by not doing his own individual part [...]


    9. This book was really interesting It s very much a guide to the BUD S indoctrination and first phase, with very specific details about the process It s less about strategy, and about some of the challenges faced by individuals trying to become SEALs A great book for those interested in learning about the actual nuts and bolts of BUD S, and a little general information on becoming a SEAL I had hoped this book was of a memoir but it really isn t, although Couch was a SEAL himself His second boo [...]


    10. Educates while weaving in engaging stories.It s written by a former SEAL who shadowed this particular class There s a strong bias there, but the account feels very real Well written and easy to read, with the Author making the training very personal by giving stories of individual recruits, their backgrounds, and some of the challenges they overcame or didn t The book corrected a lot of misconceptions I had about SEALs in general, especially their training, and left me with even respect for wha [...]


    11. A step by step explanation of the BUD S training process, including Hell Week, as seen by former SEAL Dick Couch in class 228 BUD S is the 16 week training which SEAL candidates have to go through in order to secure their way to the 18 month SEAL tactical and operational training Interesting book if you like special operations forces and their training.


    12. Author Dick Crouch follows the training of future Navy Seals For most people the training would be torture, but a few amazing individuals excel and make it through to join the Special Forces.I was intrigued by the endurance of the men that continued training while others dropped out This is a fascinating book that anyone considering the military or Special Forces training should read.


    13. Highly informative and interesting book The author did a fantastic job in describing just how hard it is for these special warriors to complete SEAL training Having a SEAL in the family, I knew close up it was is hard, but this book takes it to another level The underlying question, what determines who will or will not complete SEAL training, is a thread throughout the book The author said 5 10 percent will DOR Drop on Request due to lack of physical capability 5 10 percent will succeed regardle [...]


    14. I gave The Warrior Elite a 4 out of 5 stars because of one main problem Overall, this book is very informative and intense It shows just how vigorous training is to become a Navy SEAL Of the 137 trainees that started the 6 month journey, only about 20 were left standing The main problem on why I only gave this book a 4 out of 5 is addressed in other good reads reviews and I completely agree with it Dick Couch does not mention the problem with SEALs He does not quite touch on things SEALs have do [...]


    15. A very detailed about what a prospective SEAL goes through I had an understanding of this from other books so that is why I only rated this a 3 star rating Well written and very informative If you have wondered what it takes to become a SEAL this is a wonderful read, I think you get the whole picture I know I would not make it through the rigors and misery They are an amazing group of men who deserve our respect as well as our thanks.


    16. When a trainee goes to Navy Seals training, they can drop on request at anytime and are honorably returned to the fleet, and they finish their tours there When you read about how exhausted, wet and cold they get, it s easy to understand why 1 5 makes it What you re left with are the people who never quite, no matter the cost I ve read 4 books about the Navy Seals now, and every time I finish one, I m inspired to be on my game, no matter what I m doing.


    17. I d heard the term hell week before, but didn t know what it actually involved This book takes you right into the full training regimen that it takes to get into the Navy Seals The book had a few places that was a little slow, but overall I felt like I was there with them okay, not really, but it was interesting to imagine what they were doing.


    18. an in depth look at what it takes to become a navy seal if you re into the topic at all, this is kind of a must read if you re not, you ll be very bored.





    19. A very fast read Kept me interested throughout I felt like I was right there going through the training Well written.


    20. Seal training in an endlessly fascinating topic for me I liked that perspective of an older seal sitting in on current training The history in this story was neat Unfortunately the book was a touch redundant slow for me Maybe that s because the training can contain those characteristics but the other books on seal training didn t have that issue Overall still interesting


    21. An incredble account of Class 228 and what they endure through the Basic Underwater Demolition SEALs training initiative This book is written with so much realism, you feel as though the recruits undergoing training are people you know I purposely didn t say you feel as though you re there, because the opposite is true you _know_ you re not there And that s kind of the point It is a program that is not meant to pass everyone, and in fact, senior officers regularly encourage officers and the enli [...]

    23. The warrior elite is a phenomenal book about an extraordinary class of me who are willing to go to incredible lengths to acomplish their goals It is a truly comprehensive and in depth guide to BUD S and the road to becoming a Navy S.E.A.L The book is well written and interesting it doesn t get dull or become a chore to read at any point the author does a fantastic job of immersing you in the world of pain and constant struggle that the recruits experience Couch does a fantastic job explaining ea [...]


    24. The book Warrior Elite follows BUD S Class 228 in there training for the Navy SEAL Trident Dick Couch follows and writes about the struggles and turmoils that Class 228, and the previous classes before him had to endure In the first few chapters they are in First Phase, which is designed to weed out the weak and the trainees who are not at there peak physical condition The true test of this is hell week in which the trainees go through 5 and 1 2 days of non stop training during this they will ru [...]


    25. A really fascinating look at BUD S that follows one class from inception to graduation I saw a few reviewers complaining about the things the book didn t talk about but honestly I m confused by that the book is about BUD S and doesn t pretend to be anything else It s not a history of the SEALs or a study of their impact on modern warfare Warrior Elite is about exactly what the subtitle says it is, and Couch does a great job of talking about the training process Worth noting that this was written [...]

    27. Wondering what it takes to become a U.S Navy SEAL This book was written by DIck Couch, a graduate of BUD S class 45 in 1969 top of his class and he follows class 228 through 6 months of some of the most brutal training int he world The author describes finishing BUD S training as analogous to child birth, i.e the pain is quickly pushed aside by the joy of finally having it behind you Mealtime is described as a dreamy hiatus in a relentless existence of cold and pain In my constant attempt to fin [...]
