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.

Because he and his teammates, trained to the max, gave each other the courage to attain the unattainable . . . .

    Good Read

    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.
