Warrior Soul is a book about the warrior spirit, and it takes the listener all over the world. Former Navy SEAL Chuck Pfarrer recounts some of his most dangerous assignments: On a clandestine reconnaissance mission on the Mosquito Coast, his recon team plays a deadly game of cat and mouse with a Nicaraguan patrol boat. Cut off on the streets of Beirut, the author’s SEAL detachment must battle snipers on the Green Line. In the mid-Atlantic, Pfarrer’s unit attempts to retrieve - or destroy - the booster section of a Trident ballistic missile before it can be recovered by a Russian spy trawler. On a runway in Sicily, his assault element surrounds an Egyptian airliner carrying the Achille Lauro hijackers.
These are only a few of the riveting stories of combat patrol, reconnaissance missions, counter-terrorist operations, tragedies, and victories in Warrior Soul that illustrate the SEAL maxim "The person who will not be defeated cannot be defeated."

Tends to wander
I'm sure this guy had an exciting and varied career as a SEAL officer but sometimes it would be hard to tell based on this book. There are some fascinating tales of missions he took part in and it's a pity that he did not concentrate more on this side of his military career instead of wandering off into long history lessons and background information, most of which is generally already well known and doesn't add anything to his personal experiences. Whether this is done because he not allowed to expand too much on the mission details themselves, or because he thought it would add to the narrative I don't know but, for example, you end up listening to hours on the history on the causes and effects of the Lebanon conflict with very little detail of what he actually did while he was there and this seems to be a pattern throughout the book. I started out enjoying this book but my interest waned by the end of book one and I struggled through the start of book 2 which is a shame when the subject matter promised so much.

Excellent book and excellent author!
Would you consider the audio edition of Warrior Soul to be better than the print version?
I have not read the print version, but hearing it from the horse's mouth so to speak means a lot to me.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Of course my favorite is Chuck. He's the real deal!
Which scene was your favorite?
Impossible to choose. I loved every minute of the book.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
I'm not into catchy tag lines. The story speaks for itself.
Any additional comments?
I completely disagree with what others have said in their reviews about Chuck not being a good narrator for this book. I found his voice not monotone, but calm and soothing. Exactly what you would NOT expect from a true ass-kicker. He's intelligent, trustworthy, and a true American hero. One of my favorite books of all time for sure.
