ROGUE WARRIOR: SEAL FORCE ALPHA

By Richard Marcinko (Author) , John Weisman (Author)

Pub Date: March 1st, 1998
ISBN: 0-671-00067-5
Publisher: Pocket

 This fifth in a wildly successful series (Rogue Warrior: Designation Gold, p. 85, etc.) mixing brutal action and high-tech toys doesn't stray far from the formula. Marcinko, himself a former Navy SEAL (a career described in the nonfiction Rogue Warrior, 1992), once again celebrates the adventures of a fictive Richard Marcinko and his lethal, rowdy band of SEALS as they put paid to schemes aimed at destabilizing America. The villains here are the Red Chinese, who have, with the collusion of a variety of defeatist and depraved members of the Washington elite, hatched a bizarre scheme to greatly humble the nation. Marcinko and his team handle, with gusto, both enemies without and traitors within, using their wits, a staggering array of weapons, and an obvious appetite for violence. A slick, streamlined, outrageous but entertaining product. (Author tour)
