  1. Unusual among military memoirs the author is introspective and frank than the average person, and he makes himself quite vulnerable emotionally in looking back over his past The result is a story that is gripping in some places and poignant in others.Much than a lot of there I was memoirs, this gave me a feel for the author s character and inner life as much as his career and military experiences, and his psychological and emotional growth over time Of course, as a SEAL, he centered his life o [...]


  2. Funny story, but I never would have read this book if people at my second job hadn t started calling each other Chuck around the office It became a thing Hey, Chuck, I need _____ Chuck, can you get this for me Chuck Turns out that this book is behind that silly bit of office shennanigans It s the memoir of a Navy SEAL, and Chuck Pfarrer pulls no punches as he tells the tale of how he graduated from a surfer dude to one bad ass mo fo It made the rounds at the office, and I finally got a chance to [...]


  3. Warrior Soul is the memoir of Navy SEAL Chuck Pfarrer, a true account of his training, experiences and exploits I read it as research for my own novel, Falcon Strike It s always difficult to review a book whose content concerns a matter the reviewer has never personally experienced I believe the book is authentic and honest, but only another SEAL is really qualified to make such judgments.I grew to like the author as I got to know him through his own words Pfarrer is a man with clay feet, but re [...]


  4. Intriguing account of what it takes to become a SEAL and how they operate out in the field I am not from a military family nor have I ever had familiarity or experience in understanding that lifestyle so reading this was a true education for me I absolutely had no idea what is involved in reaching the level of skill they have and, to be honest, I had no idea people were that skilled I am absolutely stunned by the level of training they continually undergo I had heard of Hell Week through their B [...]


  5.

  8. Not a glamorous tale, but full of grit and fog of war Glad America has SEALS and other special forces at the tip of the spear.


  9. Originally posted on Sarahsbookshelf This book, written by retired Navy SEAL Chuck Pfarrer, was a very interesting read As you know, I enjoy reading memoirs from members of our military Navy SEAL memoirs are of particular interest because their experiences are so much intense than other branches of the military They have autonomy than other special operations forces and go on much unpredictable missions, some that end successfully and some that do not.Many memoirs are written for family membe [...]


  10. I cannot believe I failed to write a review of Warrior Soul when I first read it last summer And now that I do, I fail to remember what it was exactly that I liked about it so much,You should know this, however Warrior Soul was the book that started my recent bout of reading military themed books I read it on vacation yes, southern France, thanks for asking, and no, I don t think you need to be there in order to enjoy the book, but you would surely enjoy being in Southern France for other reason [...]


  11. This is an honest and well written account of one of the most interesting occupations out there, the SEALs, who I would summarize as extremely well trained pirates who double as stunt artists and spies As for the literature itself, Pfrarer is the most well written surfer dude you ve ever read The prose is lean and poetic, the dialogue is realistic, and Pfrarer manages to walk this amusing line between being a thoughtful writer and a bad ass commando But aside from all the Hollywood hype around t [...]


  12. A terrific tale of what it takes to be a SEAL and most importantly what it actually takes to live every second of your life in the way of the warrior.An epic biography of a former U.S.Navy SEAL having his own fair share of tragedies,triumphs and near death experiences.I have been trailing this book for a really long time till I got my hands on it.There have been sections where I almost cried and sometimes did and also incidents which made me spread a grin and some which just engage you till you [...]


  13. Warrior Soul is an autobiographical account of the experiences of Chuck Pfarrer as he endures application to, training, and later experiences in the Navy SEAL units He lived the life, and has a unique insider s perspective on some of the best training and teambuilding in the world He also has a writer s ear and eye, and is able to accurately describe and comment on his experiences and the events in which he participated as a member of this elite military organization At the end, as he describes [...]


  14. A book that takes you into the already well trod world of the navy seal From the brutal Hell week to the endless evolution Ops the writer does a good job of making these practices interesting However, much of what s related is just practice, which leeches the drama from any scene Even the bookend story of his escape from a faulty parachute comes from a training mission Nevertheless, Pfarrer can write and he does an excellent job of detailing what went wrong in Lebanon that resulted in the bombin [...]


  15. I thought this book was okay Though the topic is interesting, I found the book s tone to be a back slapping, frat boy, research paper approach rather than a memoir that revealed a tremendous amount of personal growth There was one exception when the author describes his experience of being Beirut when the Marine barracks were bombed, you are transported to that terrible scene and can feel his pain I just wish Mr Pfarrer had brought of that approach to the rest of his book Even his admissions ab [...]


  16. Outstanding book written by a warrior.Mrrrier had a long and and interesting carrier.a true warrior I have the utmost respect for him and his team mates.


  17. I throughly enjoyed this book It s clear that we are only recieving a glimpse into the author s world, but it was plenty The book is very well written, and documents the author s career as a Navy SEAL, first with SEAL team 5 in Beruit, then with SEAL Team 4, and finally with the elite SEAL team 6 It talks about the selection process for both becoming a SEAL, and then the selection process for the even intese SEAL team 6 It does not go into as much detail as other works on the selection process, [...]


  18. Fascinating read Somewhat depressing though, as it rehashes just how out of touch the government big wigs are to the military men who actually have to function And no one seems to be learning from it The info on Beirut was horrifying, though interesting from the author s point of view, since so much of that seems to be lost unless one specifically goes looking I also liked the other point of view with regards to SEAL Team 6, since I have and have read Marcinko s book Very impressive.


  19. Chuck Pfarrer is an undoubtedly heroic and understandably arrogant individual who sacrificed much to provide an invaluable service to America His account of the 234 Marines who perished during the barracks bombing in Beirut in the early 80s from a SEAL s perspective was very enlightening as I was previously unaware of a special forces presence in that area at the time and the details he provided regarding the environment prior to the incident give a new perspective to the tragic event and the re [...]


  20. This book was about a navy seal and all of his tours of duty that he goes through in syria and the mid atlantic This book also shows how much of a tough ass you have to be to go through the things that happen in war.Text to world Thisbook connectes to the world because everything really did happen and people die everyday in Iraq.Text to Text This book realets to Tom Clancys Ghost Recon because there both true stories about soilders who risk everything everyday.I rated this book like this because [...]


  21. An excellent, beautifully written account of a difficult and challenging Navy SEAL life Pfarrer goes into detail about his training and reflects on the many places his career took him over the years I used this as source material for my novel Bridging Two Hearts Pfarrer captures the life in a way that makes it understandable for even the most sedentary land lubber Highly recommended if you re interested in Navy SEALS.


  22. This was an interesting book It seemed like Chuck told it like it is within the Navy and the SEAL s You have to wonder just what screw is loose that makes these men want to do this, but I am glad that there are people out there that do do this Often things weren t pretty, and even the author didn t paint himself in the best light If you enjoy reading about the military this book will appeal to you.


  23. This is a real good look at the life and experiences of a Navy SEAL This shows how these are guys who are somehow extraordinary while still being normal human beings with all the problems that the rest of us have They just have something inside that makes them just keep going when the rest of us would quit In my opinion, this is a good introduction to SEALs for thosse who wonder about them It is very well written, accessible and fast paced.


  24. Awesome, awesome, awesome Like Beetlejuice, if you say those words three times this book appears on your Kindle app But seriously, this is one of the engaging memoirs I ve ever read for obvious reasons Detailing his journey through BUD s, his time in SEAL Team 4 and his stint in SEAL Team 6, Chick Pfarrer weaves a gripping saga of adventure and emotion that is hard to put down.


  25. An awesome story from a great writerThis book had many very interesting stories, written quite well, about notable times in recent history I enjoyed reading about Mr Pfarrer s life and experience in the SEAL teams I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning about the SEAL teams or Mr Pfarrer s life as a Navy SEAL Thank you sir, for your service and for sharing your story.


  26. I picked it out wanting to learn about the SEALs and I did Pfarrer is a good story teller, blunt and honest His writings about Beirut were really mesmerizing I was reading steadily until Beirut and then I went on a serious binge Could not put the book down I really appreciated how well he explained not only the lifestyle but the details of armor, equipment, and other gear And the jargon Really brings the stories into close focus.


  27. I was about to say in my review that Chuck Pfarrer has a fall back career as a writer because this is so well done, looked him up on here, and he actually is a writer now So I guess he didn t need my advice That aside, it really is a remarkably well crafted book, worth a read whether you re into military memoirs or not.


  28. This book is nothing short of entertaining Chuck Pfarrer walks you through his personal experiences as a Navy seal and his entire military career You begin to see the type of anamalistic nature that one has to acquire in order to become an elite soldier I appreciate the honesty in his stories and was quite taken back by his indifference toward some of his behaviour Nevertheless, a great read.


  29. Violent and bloodthirsty in many ways, but you d expect that of such a book Very readable and even exciting in a perverse way I have to admire the grit and determination of men like Chuck Pfarrer, not to mention the courage and determination It s a shame that the job skills he writes about are still so necessary in our world.
