JOHN MOODY; NAVY SEAL: The Kola Peninsula Conspiracy Audiobook

JOHN MOODY; NAVY SEAL: The Kola Peninsula Conspiracy

Author: Dick Couch Narrator: Joe Barrett Release Date: July 2016

John Moody grew up ranch tough on a small cattle spread in Wyoming. A pair of gifted hands and the ability to run precise routes sent him to college on a football scholarship. In college he played wide-receiver and partied a lot. Now he's a Navy SEAL. A hard calling, but he was hard long before he arrived for SEAL training in Coronado. With the Berlin Wall down and the Cold War cooling off, there was little work for this young SEAL lieutenant. So he partied on-until the Kola mission tasking. In the far reaches of the Northern Military District, a Russian general is trying to keep his underpaid and under-equipped forces intact. To do this, he is reconfiguring tactical nuclear warheads and selling them on a cash-and-carry basis. And America's newest adversary, the Islamic extremists, desperately want them. The CIA has indications but no proof that this is taking place. The proof America needs is in the hands of a well-placed agent in this same general's forces. That agent has gone silent. In order to reestablish contact, a team of Navy SEALs trained in winter warfare is sent secretly into northern Russia-to the frigid Kola Peninsula. And that team is headed by none other than John Moody.

By Honor Bound: Two Navy SEALs, the Medal of Honor, and a Story of Extraordinary Courage Audiobook

By Honor Bound: Two Navy SEALs, the Medal of Honor, and a Story of Extraordinary Courage

Author: Dick Couch, Mike Thornton, Tom Norris Narrator: Jeff Gurner Release Date: May 2016

In April of 1972, SEAL Lieutenant Tom Norris risked his life in an unprecedented ground rescue of two American airmen who were shot down behind enemy lines in North Vietnam, a feat for which he would be awarded the Medal of Honor--an award that represents the pinnacle of heroism and courage. Just six months later, Norris was sent on a dangerous special reconnaissance mission that would take his team deep into enemy territory. On that mission, they engaged a vastly superior force. In the running gun battle that ensued, Lieutenant Norris was severely wounded; a bullet entered his left eye and exited the left side of his head. SEAL Petty Officer Mike Thornton, under heavy fire, fought his way back onto a North Vietnamese beach to rescue his officer. This was the first time Tom and Mike had been on a combat mission together. Mike's act of courage and loyalty marks the only time in modern history that the Medal of Honor has been awarded in a combat action where one recipient received the Medal for saving the life of another. By Honor Bound is the story of Tom Norris and Mike Thornton, two living American heroes who grew up very differently, entered military service and the Navy SEAL teams for vastly different reasons, and were thrown together for a single combat mission--a mission that would define their lives from that day forward. With Dick Couch.

Tom Clancy's Op-Center: Into the Fire: A Novel

Author: Dick Couch, George Galdorisi Narrator: George Galdorisi, Henry Leyva Release Date: May 2015

When a team of assassins murder a high-ranking North Korean general and his family in their sleep, making it look like a robbery, events are set in motion that could shake the balance of world powers. Meanwhile, a U.S. naval combat ship, the USS Milwaukee, is attacked by North Korean forces in the middle of a training exercise off the shore of South Korea, and Commander Kate Bigelow is forced to ground the ship to avoid being captured. The crew takes refuge on a tiny island, trapped dangerously between the grounded ship and a fleet of hostile North Korean soldiers. Op-Center intelligence discovers a secret alliance behind the attack a pact between China and North Korea that guarantees China total control of a vast oil reserve found beneath the Yellow Sea. As both sides marshal their forces for a major confrontation at sea, Chase Williams and his Op-Center organization devise a plan to secretly spirit the American crew from the island and out from under North Korean control. But the North Koreans are not finished. In a desperate gamble, they unleash a terrorist cell on the American homeland. Only Op-Center can uncover their plan and stop it in time to prevent a major catastrophe that could lead to all-out war.

Navy Seals: Their Untold Story Audiobook

Navy Seals: Their Untold Story

Author: Dick Couch, William Doyle Narrator: Will Damron, William Doyle Release Date: November 2014

Written with the unprecedented cooperation of the Naval Special Warfare community, here is the definitive history of the U.S. Navy SEALs, a thrilling chronicle that reveals the inside story behind the greatest combat operations of our nation's most celebrated warriors. New York Times bestselling authors Dick Couch, former SEAL, Vietnam veteran, and highly respected military writer, and award-winning author William Doyle draw on exclusive interviews with more than 100 special operators (including multiple Medal of Honor recipients), as well as thousands of pages of declassified documents to create a vivid, unparalleled portrait of the SEALs in action. Navy SEALs: Their Untold Story charts the dramatic evolution of the frogmen from their origins in World War II, when the daring Naval Combat Demolition Teams, Underwater Demolition Teams, Scouts and Raiders commando units, and OSS Operational Swimmers proved instrumental at D-Day, Okinawa, and many other critical campaigns. In the Korean War, the Navy UDTs cleared mines and scouted landing sites ahead of the main American forces. After their official founding in 1962 by order of President John F. Kennedy and early covert operations in Cuba, the SEALs came of age in the jungles of Vietnam, where they specialized in executing the most daring missions. Couch and Doyle trace their transformation in the 1980s and 1990s, when America's special operations teams were centralized under the U.S. Special Operations Command, including untold accounts from Panama, Grenada, Somalia, and the first Gulf War. Finally, we follow their rise to preeminence in Iraq and Afghanistan after 9/11. The SEALs and their forefathers have shaped the tides of history; from fighting Hitler to eliminating Osama bin Laden, the frogmen of the U.S. Navy are the spearhead of American military might: the toughest, most highly trained, best equipped, and most invisible, band of warriors. Now many of these quiet professionals, speaking for the first time, reveal what it's like to be the men living on the knife's edge. Navy SEALs: Their Untold Story gives these legendary warriors the epic chronicle they deserve.

What happens when a Navy SEAL comes home from war—with a mission? Garrett Walker is a warrior. For the last decade and a half he’s been continuously at war—combat rotation after combat rotation. He’s a veteran of the close fight, and he’s taken a great many lives. Yet, all that combat and all those deaths were in the service of his country. Now, that’s about to change. Since their college days, Garrett and his identical twin, Brandon, have been estranged. They were both in love with the same woman, and she chose Brandon. So Garrett chose the Navy SEALs. Then, following the death of their younger brother, yet another tragedy strikes the Walker family: Brandon is caught in the web of a Russian Mafia organ-theft ring. He’s just another business man in Las Vegas on just another business trip—until strange men enter his hotel room and crudely remove his kidneys after he’s been drugged. It’s a rare crime, but one that happens more than is reported. For those in the black-market organ trade, it’s easy pickings, right? But they didn’t count on the resiliency of the one twin, or the rage of the other. Together, Garrett and Brandon embark on a mission. Together, they put all the rules aside and bring about the ultimate Act of Revenge.

The Finishing School: Earning the Navy SEAL Trident

Author: Dick Couch Narrator: Arthur Morey Release Date: August 2014

In America's new war, the first guns in the fight are special operations forces, including the Navy SEALs, specially trained warriors who operate with precision, swiftness, and lethal force. In the constantly shifting war on terror, SEAL units—small in number, flexible, stealthy, and efficient—are more vital than ever to America's security as they take the battle to an elusive enemy around the globe. But how are Navy SEALs made? Dick Couch, author of the acclaimed Warrior Elite, follows SEALs on the ground and in the water as they undergo SEAL Tactical Training, where they master combat skills such as precision shooting, demolitions, secure communications, parachuting, diving, and first aid. From there, the men enter operational platoons, where they subordinate their individual abilities to the mission of the group and train for special operations in specific geographic environments. Never before has a civilian writer been granted such close access to the training of America's most elite military forces. The Finishing School is essential listening for anyone who wants to know what goes into the making of America's best warriors.

Always Faithful, Always Forward Audiobook

Always Faithful, Always Forward

Author: Dick Couch Narrator: John Pruden Release Date: June 2014

From Dick Couch, author of The Warrior Elite and The Finishing School, comes the true story of the Marine Special Operations Command. The Marine Special Operations Command ("MARSOC") is the newest component of the military's shift toward a fully integrated Special Operations Command structure. At first, the Marines were strongly against any Marines serving under anyone other than another Marine. Then 9/11 happened. In the years following, Marine forces found themselves growing more agreeable to inter-branch operational command, finally forming the Marine Special Operations Command in 2006. Always Faithful, Always Forward follows the journey of a class of Marine candidates from their recruitment, through assessment and selection, to their qualification as Marines Special Operators. The assessment, selection, and training regimes are a combination of psychological testing and intense military training as well as being a physical and professional rite of passage. MARSOC Marines must be efficient, agile, independent, and prepared to live hard in the field. They are warriors trained in the full range of military skills, as well as teachers who can train locals to defend their communities and lead them in battle. But above all, they are Marines. Their ability to leverage their numbers by embedding with the locals and to live in remote locations has, in their short history, made them a valuable force and one with great utility in remote reaches of the world. Retired Navy Captain Dick Couch has been given unprecedented access to this new command and to the individual Marines of this exceptional special-operations unit, allowing him to chronicle the history and development of the Marine Special Operations Command and how they find, recruit, and train their special operators.

Before 9/11 America was protected by a covert force known as the National Crisis Management Center. Commonly known as Op-Center, this silent, secret mantel guarded the American people and protected the country from enemies. The charter was top secret and Director Paul Hood reported directly to the president. Op-Center used undercover operatives with SWAT capabilities to diffuse crises around the world, and they were tops in their field. But after the World Trade Center disaster, in the interest of streamlining, OP-Center was disbanded leaving the country in terrible danger. But when terrorists detonate bombs in sports stadiums around the country leaving men, women and children dead or mutilated, the President executes an emergency order to bring back Op-Center an Op-Center capable of dealing with the high tech crises of the 21st Century, and there is a lethal one brewing in the Middle East. A renegade Saudi Prince with ambitions of controlling the world's oil supply has an ingenious plot to manipulate America into attacking Syria and launching a war against Iran. Next, they would ignite a sleeper cell to attack the America homeland, resulting in a bloodbath unlike any other. Only the men and women of Op-Center, using sophisticated technology, realize what is about to be unleashed. Only they have the courage to issue a warning no one wants to hear. But will anyone believe them?
