By Water Beneath The Walls


  • Behind the SEALs’ improbable rise lies the most remarkable underdog story in American military history—former Navy SEAL Benjamin H. Milligan captures it as never before.
  • Told through the eyes of notable leaders and racing from one longshot, hair-curling raid to the next, BY WATER BENEATH THE WALLS is a tale of the unit’s heroic naval predecessors, and the evolution of the SEALs themselves.
  • It’s also the story of the forging of American special operations as a whole—and how the SEALs emerged from the fires as America’s first permanent commando force, when again and again some other unit seemed predestined to seize that role.
