Men with Green Faces...the Ghosts That Walk at Night...the Men Behind the Trident...the myth, the legend. The Teams.
But what makes a legend?
It is 1969, early in SEAL history. Vietnam rages on. Jack Kirby, orphaned and alone, arrives on the BUD/S doorstep. Short on stature, but long on determination Kirby faces down relentless mental and physical punishment to prove to himself and others that he is worthy of the Teams and the title SEAL pointman.
The PT is brutal. The training is relentless. And the instructors are worse than everything put together. Vietnam might just be a cakewalk if he can survive Hell Week. But Jack Kirby would tell you the result is worth the taste of salt in your mouth, whether from sweat or tears or the sea. The result is the making of a legend.
In a story rich with detail, author Dennis J. Cummings has combined numerous interviews with former SEALs to weave a realistic story of the making of a Navy SEAL. He is the author of The Men Behind the Trident: An Oral History of the Navy SEALs. This is his first work of fiction.
