Description

In Navy SEALs: Mission at the Caves, the first book in the Special Operations Files series, highly decorated former Navy SEAL Brandon Webb tells his incredible true story.

Brandon Webb is a Navy SEAL on a mission with his platoon. As the SEALs explore a network of caves in Afghanistan, they encounter enemy soldiers. Outnumbered and with few resources at their disposal, Brandon and his team must call on their training to complete their operation—and to stay alive.

Packed with photos and maps for context, the Special Operations Files series provides insight into the most elite forces in the U.S. military. These uniquely trained soldiers do what no one else can: employ high-tech weaponry and old-fashioned bravery to get the job done!
