The gripping tale of a top-secret Navy SEAL unit deployed to Grenada to face a vastly underestimated enemy. It was a mission doomed to failure & perfect for the SEALS!
- Gripping profiles of courage in the most difficult circumstances.
- Each episode presents the detailed story of an extraordinary encounter.
- SEAL Team Six takes on its first ''hot'' operation as a counterterrorism unit.
From Delta Force Operators to CIA Field Officers, SWAT teams to Navy SEALS, HEROES UNDER FIRE recounts the stories of those who distinguish themselves above all others in perilous situations of combat, rescue missions, covert assignments, drug wars, and hostile intelligence operations.
Grenada, October 25, 1983: the first American military operation since Vietnam.
Two decades before the modern War on Terror, an elite counterterrorism unit, Navy SEAL Team Six, received its first mission: rescue Grenada's Governor from the communist forces that overthrew his government.
Intel informs Team Six to expect light resistance. Instead, they fast-rope into a hornet's nest of small arms fire and anti-aircraft artillery. Before it's over, the rescuers become the rescued and Team Six barely survives its baptism-by-fire.
The Invasion of Grenada, famously closed to the press, remains a little-understood chapter in modern warfare. This in-depth analysis of one valiant unit's experience shines much-needed light on America's performance there.
