Navy SEALs: America's Secret Warriors
History, Documentary, Reality, Military, War
The Navy SEALs are one of the most elite fighting forces in the world, with the group's formation dating back to 1962 and its predecessor group going as far back as World War II. This docuseries traces the history of the SEALs from their formation through the decades to the Sept. 11 attacks and the subsequent war on terror, which increased the SEALs' workload from occasional missions to near-daily raids in Afghanistan and Iraq. Some of the high-profile missions that are covered include rescuing Capt. Phillips from pirates, rescuing kidnapped aid worker Jessica Buchanan in Somalia, and -- perhaps their most famous accomplishment -- raiding Osama bin Laden's compound.
