Overview

On the night of May 1, 2011, two Black Hawk helicopters flew into Pakistan. Crowded into the aircraft were members of the U.S. Navy SEAL Team Six-one of the most highly trained special operations forces in the world. Their mission was to hunt down the world's most wanted terrorist-Osama bin Laden. However, bin Laden had successfully escaped capture for more than ten years. Would SEAL Team Six finally be able to get him? Look inside to meet the Navy SEALs who bravely serve our country, and get an inside look at how they train for and carry out their dangerous, top-secret missions. From rescuing hostages to capturing terrorists, no job is too tough for Navy SEAL Team Six.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
11/01/2013
Gr 3–6—Each title begins with an attention-grabbing critical situation. For example, Navy SEAL opens with the mission to find Osama bin Laden. Subsequent chapters, all very short, explain the special teams' duties, history, qualifications, and training. The titles end with spreads highlighting specific gear. The books are light on narrative and include text boxes of information ("The CIA teaches its ops different languages, so that they can communicate with people in foreign countries") and maps. They are heavy on aptly captioned color photos. Overall, a well-designed set, though dealing with violent careers.
