With a postscript describing SEAL efforts in Afghanistan, The Warrior Elite takes you into the toughest, longest, and most relentless military training in the world. What does it take to become a Navy SEAL? What makes talented, intelligent young men volunteer for physical punishment, cold water, and days without sleep? In The Warrior Elite, former Navy SEAL Dick Couch documents the process that transforms young men into warriors. SEAL training is the distillation of the human spirit, a tradition-bound ordeal that seeks to find men with character, courage, and the burning desire to win at all costs, men who would rather die than quit.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The first day of training has begun for Class 228. It's pitch black except for the building lights that cut into the mist, and the underwater pool lights that illuminate a blue mirror surface. #2 The class leader, Lieutenant William Gallagher, and the leading petty officer, Robert Carreola, were pushing concrete. The class was not doing well, and Reno was becoming frustrated. He turned to the class and said, This is bullshit. You guys better get it together. . now! Things are going to start to get difficult around here. #3 The training course for BUD/S is conducted in three phases. The first phase is the conditioning phase, followed by the diving phase, and lastly the weapons and tactics phase. Only those who pass the screening test are allowed to continue. #4 The screening test is not a perfect predictor of who will succeed and who will fail. In the demanding days ahead, a few of those who struggled to pass the screening test will make it to graduation.

Putting into question the conventional view that the military is detrimental to democratic development, Dolman provides a multifaceted examination of the institutional incentives of the military and its relations with civilian authorities. Drawing on classical political theory, a wide range of historical examples, and statistical findings, The Warrior State argues that the military can facilitate democracy as the result of specific norms and conditions that focus on individual action. Ironically, this may be best inculcated through a focus on the offensive, precisely the military doctrine commonly seen as most likely to result in international conflict. The paradox of offensive strategies possibly increasing international conflict while also enhancing democracy, which is supposed to decrease such conflict, from a core of this provocative book.

Exploring the gray zone of infiltration and subversion in which the Nazi and Communist parties sought to influence and undermine each other, this book offers a fresh perspective on the relationship between two defining ideologies of the twentieth century. The struggle between Fascism and Communism is situated within a broader conversation among right- and left-wing publicists, across the Youth Movement and in the "National Bolshevik" scene, thus revealing the existence of a discourse on revolutionary legitimacy fought according to a set of common assumptions about the qualities of the ideal revolutionary. Highlighting the importance of a masculine-militarist politics of youth revolt operative in both Marxist and anti-Marxist guises, Weimar Radicals forces us to re-think the fateful relationship between the two great ideological competitors of the Weimar Republic, while offering a challenging new interpretation of the distinctive radicalism of the interwar era.
