Following the success of his #1 New York Times bestseller Make Your Bed, which has sold over one million copies, Admiral William H. McRaven is back with amazing stories of bravery and heroism during his career as a Navy SEAL and commander of America's Special Operations Forces.
Admiral William H. McRaven is a part of American military history, having been involved in some of the most famous missions in recent memory, including the capture of Saddam Hussein, the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips, and the raid to kill Osama bin Laden.

Sea Stories begins in 1963 at a French Officers' Club in France, where Allied officers and their wives gathered to have drinks and tell stories about their adventures during World War II-the place where a young Bill McRaven learned the value of a good story. Sea Stories is an unforgettable look back on one man's incredible life, from childhood days sneaking into high-security military sites to a day job of hunting terrorists and rescuing hostages.

Action-packed, humorous, and full of valuable life lessons like those exemplified in McRaven's bestselling Make Your Bed, Sea Stories is a remarkable memoir from one of America's most accomplished leaders.

  • Puzzled

    By The Old Librarian
    Seal books, stories, movies, etc., are over saturating the market. Wasn’t a bad read but his high regard for John Brennan was a little puzzling, but I guess one does not rise to rank of Admiral without some political DNA.
  • Great Career

    This book seems like a small snapshot of someone larger than life. I am happy our paths crossed so many years ago. Jon

  • Another book on being a SEAL

    By Red2184
    It appears every SEAL, who has seen action, feel or is compelled to write a book on being a SEAL. There are several books on SEAL activities and while the Country can be grateful for their service it would be better if the SEAL authors did not flood us with copies of their exploits and go back in the shadows where they belong.
