Sea Stories

My Life in Special Operations

Following the success of his #1 New York Times bestseller Make Your Bed, which has sold over one million copies, Admiral William H. McRaven is back with amazing stories of bravery and heroism from his career as a Navy SEAL and commander of America’s Special Forces.

Admiral William H. McRaven is a part of American military history, having orchestrated some of the most famous missions in recent memory, including the capture of Saddam Hussein, the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips, and the raid to kill Osama bin Laden.

SEA STORIES begins in 1963 at a French Officer’s Club in Paris, where Allied officers and their wives gathered to have drinks and tell stories about their adventures during World War II — the place where a young William McRaven learned the value of a good story. SEA STORIES is an unforgettable look back on one man’s incredible life, from childhood days sneaking into high-security nuclear sites to a day job of hunting terrorists and rescuing hostages.

Action-packed, humorous, and full of valuable life lessons like those exemplified in McRaven’s bestselling book, Make Your Bed, SEA STORIES is a remarkable memoir from one of America’s most accomplished leaders.
