By Brandon Webb

The Red Circle: My Life in the Navy SEAL Sniper Corps and How I Trained America's Deadliest Marksmen

"If you want to know what makes up the DNA of a Navy SEAL and have a behind-the-scenes look at the best sniper program in the world, then 'hold 1 right for wind' and read The Red Circle."-Chris Kyle, SEAL Team Three Chief and bestselling author of American Sniper

Brandon Webb's experiences in the world's most elite sniper corps are the stuff of legend. From his grueling years of training in Naval Special Operations to his combat tours in the Persian Gulf and Afghanistan, The Red Circle provides a rare and riveting look at the inner workings of the U.S. military through the eyes of a covert operations specialist.

"Impressive and well-written...The Red Circle is a great book."-Howard E. Wasdin, Navy SEAL and bestselling author of SEAL Team Six

Yet it is Webb's distinguished second career as a lead instructor for the shadowy "sniper cell" and Course Manager of the Navy SEAL Sniper Program that trained some of America's finest and deadliest warriors-including Marcus Luttrell and Chris Kyle-that makes his story so compelling. From his days as a student going through the sniper course to his hair-raising close calls with Taliban and al Qaeda forces in the northern Afghanistan to his vivid account of designing new sniper standards and training some of the most accomplished snipers of the twenty-first century, Webb reveals how the Special Operations warriors at the forefront of today's military are forged.


"A recounting of the hellish mental and physical tests required to earn a SEAL's trident pin."-San Diego Union-Tribune

This edition of the book is the deluxe, tall rack mass market paperback.

"An impressive and well-written account of the most elite snipers in the world. Webb recounts with heartfelt and vivid description the training, trials, and heartache that are all costs of choosing this lifestyle. Like all true warriors, he does no chest thumping, but rather gives an honest account that proves that, after all, SEAL snipers are only human. "The Red Circle" is a great book."

--Howard E. Wasdin, Navy SEAL and bestselling author of "SEAL Team Six"

"Another forceful statement from the Brotherhood of SEALs, Brandon Webb's "The Red Circle "illustrates why he wanted to be a SEAL, what it takes to be a SEAL, how you survive the life of a SEAL, and the value of mind over matter. A valuable read for anyone aspiring to reach goals that seem unattainable--in "any "walk of life."

--CDR Richard Marcinko, USN (Ret.), founding father and first commanding officer of SEAL Team Six and bestselling author of the "Rogue Warrior"

"The story of today's Navy SEALs is Brandon Webb's to tell, and "The Red Circle" does it masterfully. This definitive work at once proves and explodes the myths behind Navy Special Warfare and the men who meet its challenges. Strap in for a wild ride."

--CDR Ward Carroll, USN (ret.), editor of Military.com
