Description

Bill Dawson, the last living member from the first class of Naval Special Warfare operators, then known as as Naval Combat Demolition Units, one of the predecessor groups that evolved into the modern day Navy SEALs. Bill provides a rare first person look into the training, personalities, and non-classified activities of his unit in the Pacific Theater of Operations from 1943 until the end of his service after the Japanese surrender. The book reproduces photographs Bill took during his service, vintage clippings and rare examples of Japanese propaganda. Retired Navy SEAL Commander and noted Naval Special Warfare historian Tom Hawkins adds historic perspective and detail.
