Marcinko's Navy Seal commandos cut, blast, and cuss their way around modern Germany as they take on a would-be Hitler and wipe out him and nearly everyone around him. Marcinko exposes us to a military culture in which a shooter (warrior) is identifiable by greater and greater extremes of foul, insulting language. As reader, Marcinko brings a certain versimilitude to the narrative by the ease with which he handles both technical and scatalogical terminology. But he reads too fast, almost tumbling over himself on numerous occasions. Although the breathless pace is sometimes exciting, the listener is left benumbed by the kaleidoscopic speed and the incendiary phraseology. D.R.W.
