Members of the Navy SEAL elite sniper corps must complete some of the toughest and longest military training in the world. This is the dramatic tale of how Brandon Webb overcame a tough childhood to live his dream and enter the exciting and dangerous world of Navy SEALS and Special Forces snipers. From his gruelling years of training in Naval Special Operations to his combat tours in the Persian Gulf and Afghanistan, The Making of a Navy SEAL is a rare look at the inner workings of the U.S. military through the eyes of a covert operations specialist.
But it is Webb's second career as a lead instructor for the shadowy "sniper cell" and Course Manager of the Navy SEAL Sniper Program that trained some of America's finest warriors - including Marcus Luttrell (Lone Survivor) and Chris Kyle (American Sniper) - that makes this story so special. The Making of a Navy SEAL is Webb's tale of overcoming the odds to be the best, and a secret look inside one of the finest and most difficult military training courses ever.
