US Navy’s elite force, the Navy SEALs is considered as one of the top Special Forces in the world today. Their existence actually gained acceptance followed by popularity since the Hollywood Movie “Navy SEALs” featuring Charlie Sheen, Michael Biehn, Rick Rossovich, and Bill Paxton among others. You can see Navy SEALs in action in several other movies like GI Jane (1997), US SEALs (1999), US SEALs II (2001), US SEALs – Dead or Alive (2002), Tears of the Sun (2003), and SEAL Team VI (2008). There are several games also based on Navy SEALs where you can use advanced weapons and several different environments for accomplishing different tasks.
Games and movies are purely for entertainment and so are books. If you are looking for hard-core Navy SEALs information then you can find quite a few of them.
