An in-depth, behind-the-curtain look at one of the most elite fighting forces in the world. Part 1 takes us through the incredible history of the SEAL’s predecessors in WWII and Korea–the underwater demolition teams that helped secure the beaches of Normandy and the Pacific–through their evolution into elite warriors, fighting in the jungles of Vietnam, the formation of SEAL Team 6, executing secret missions in Panama and Grenada, all the way up to 9-11– the event that will change the way America fights wars.
A look at how the SEALs were instrumental in the battle of the War on Terror, where they undertook missions in Afghanistan and Iraq, and executed high-profile rescues of Captain Phillips from pirates and Jessica Buchanan in Somalia, plus the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan.
