SNAKES, VIPERS, CROCS, SHARKS, AND THE VC
With 257 combat missions in Vietnam under his belt, Gary Smith is a living witness to the realities of Naval Special Warfare. He worked with some of the toughest and most highly motivated men in the world, executing missions in the murderous terrain of Rung Sat Special Zone and Dung Island. The key to their success: go where no ordinary soldier would go and no VC would expect them.
Though death reigned as king in the jungles of Vietnam, Gary Smith considered it a privilege and an honor to serve under the officers and with the men of Underwater Demolition Team Twelve and SEAL Team 1. Because he and his teammates, trained to the max, gave each other the courage to attain the unattainable . . . .

HOLY COW, this guy had a whole bunch of Vietnam tours. I like this book. I haven't read Master Chief yet, but Death in the Jungle is much better than Death in the Delta. In Rogue Warrior, Demo Dick Marcinko mentions something about Seal Team 1 always ambushing and waiting for the VC/NVA to come to them, and Seal Team 2 going hunting. I really understood this statement after reading this book seeing as how Gary R. Smith was in Seal Team 1. There isn't a ton of action in this book. It is good though.

I loved this abridged version (audio) of DEATH IN THE JUNGLE, read by Eric Conger. The story is riveting, and Mr. Conger does a terrific job of reading the book. What a great way of spending some time in my car, listening to a fascinating story of a Navy SEAL in Vietnam!
