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.
