American Commander Ryan Zinke read online review & book description:

In recent years, the world has learned just what is required to bravely serve America through the navy’s most elite SEAL Team. Now, for the first time, we hear from their commander.

For more than half a decade, Ryan Zinke was a commander at the most elite SEAL unit. A 23-year veteran of the US Navy SEALs, Zinke is a decorated officer and earned two Bronze Stars as the acting commander of Joint Special Forces in Iraq. Zinke trained and commanded many of the men who would one day run the covert operations to hunt down Osama bin Laden and save Captain Phillips (Maersk Alabama). He also served as mentor to now famous SEALs Marcus Luttrell (Lone Survivor) and Chris Kyle (American Sniper).

Written with #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of American Sniper, Scott McEwen, American Commander will offer readers the hard-hitting, no-nonsense style the SEALs are known for.

When Zinke signs with the US Navy he turns his sights on joining the ranks of the most elite fighting force, the SEALs. He eventually reaches the top of the SEAL Teams as an assault team commander. Zinke shares what it takes to train and motivate the most celebrated group of warriors on earth and then send them into harm’s way. Through it, he shares his proven problem-solving approach: Situation, Mission, Execution, Command and Control, and Logistics.

American Commander also covers Zinke’s experience in running for Montana’s sole seat in the United States Congress. Zinke’s passion for his country shines as he conveys his vision to revitalize American exceptionalism. Scott McEwen and Ryan Zinke take readers behind the scenes and into the heart of America’s most-feared fighting force. American Commander will inspire a new generation of leaders charged with restoring a bright future for our children’s children.

    Good read. I like an insiders perspective. I spent 10 years during the eighties in the Philippines as a civilian contractor at Subic and had many SEAL friends as they were forward deployed in the PI. I find the depictions accurate and feel very proud to call them my friends. I applaud Z man continuing his duty to country by joining Congress, a broken institution that can use men like Ryan Zinke to bring it back to a functioning organization dedicated to improving the life of everyday Americans. Maybe Commander Zinke could do a lot more as President than just a Congressman....just remember, The only easy day was yesterday!

    As our Nation transforms from large land or sea-based armies to confront large targets, to SEAL, DELTA, Ranger, & other small units organized & trained for most modern day warfare, backed-up by drone & air assets as overwatch around the target area. As our military forces change to meet our enemies, we need to be there to support them.

    Ryan is a great story teller. He captures the essence of how a small town boy grows up to lead one of the most lethal group of warriors in the world and wraps in a birds eye view of the many challenges our country faces in Homeland Security, energy, environment and bureaucratic largess. Great read!

    American Commander is fascinating! Once you start the book you won't be able to put it down. Not only does it provide insight into the life of a SEAL, it also helps to gain an understanding of the Middle East situation and brings to light the shortcomings of our bloated military structure! I continue to predict that Ryan Zinke will eventually become President of the United States!
