'A hell of a good read. . . . I just could not put it down . . . a sensational story.' --CLIVE CUSSLER, author of The Chase, The Navigator, and Plague Ship
This now-classic tale of SEAL combat action in Vietnam marked Dick Couch's debut as a novelist in 1990 and sold more than 100,000 copies. Hailed for its authenticity, it was the first novel about Navy SEALs to be written by one of their own. Couch, a SEAL platoon leader in the Mekong Delta from 1970 to 1971, includes gripping descriptions of dangerous operations that continue to attract a broad audience, with many bestselling authors calling his book a sensational story they can't put down. This new paperback edition features a foreword by the former head of the Naval Special Warfare Command.

After reading this book, I gave it to a friend, who was a SEAL starting in 1969, in Vietnam. I come from a long line of veterans, myself included, and have many friends/family who served in Nam, so I have a great appreciation for the sacrifices our military makes. The SEALs are a cut-above (and part crazy), however. My friend was trained under some of the instructors in the book, so he can attest to the training. I thought the book was well written, and going by my friend's comments, pretty accurate and not embellished. Being a SEAL is definitely not a glamorous job with little praise or acknowledgment, but thank God for these guys...they get the job done and leave no man behind.
Seal Team One
22 January 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
I have read all but one of Dick Couch's books and know him personally. This book is fun to read, shows the reader what it was like to be a SEAL in Vietnam without you personally fighting the bugs, jungle, and Viet Cong. Dick's writing has progressed since this early novel but SEAL TEAM ONE will put you there. Civilians, need to know what it is like to put your life on the line in the dark of night in a terrain you are not familiar with and come back to camp with the adrenalin seeping out after a night ambush patrol. Dick's book, written from first hand experience, is a winner and a keeper for my war book shelf. Jim Misko, author, THE CUT OF PRIDE

I read Dick Couch's ALWAYS FAITHFUL, ALWAYS FORWARD and since I like his style of writing and his presentation, I read Seal Team One. I enjoyed this book as well. Most books relating to the Seals that I've read delt with the ones having to go to the sand pit; this one deals with 'Nam. Having been there myslef, many of the terms used were familiar. Good book and I have the utmost respect for these very intelligent guys that put themselves in harms way on every mission.
Outstanding! - I'm tired.

Dick Couch did exactly what he set out to do; he took me to Vietnam walking in the shoes of Mr. McConnell. Excellent book! High praise! Highly recommended!
