In CHOSEN SOLDIER, Dick Couch--a former Navy SEAL widely admired for his books about SEAL training and operations--offers an unprecedented view of the training of the Army Special Forces warrior. Each year, several thousand enlisted men and several hundred officers volunteer for Special Forces training; less than a quarter of those who apply will complete the course.

CHOSEN SOLDIER spells out in fascinating detail the arduous regimen these men undergo--the demanding selection process and grueling field exercises, the high-level technical training and intensive language courses, and the simulated battle problems that test everything from how well they gather operational intelligence to their skills at negotiating with volatile, often hostile, local leaders.

Dick Couch paints a vivid, intimate portrait of these extraordinary men in CHOSEN SOLDIER as well as the process that forges America’s smartest, most versatile, and most valuable fighting force.
