Before he could forge a band of elite warriors ... he had to become one himself.

Brandon Webb's experiences in the world's most elite sniper corps are the stuff of legend. From his grueling years of training in Naval Special Operations to his combat tours in the Persian Gulf and Afghanistan, The Red Circle provides a rare and riveting look at the inner workings of the U.S. military through the eyes of a covert operations specialist.

Yet it is Webb's distinguished second career as a lead instructor for the shadowy sniper cell and Course Manager of the Navy SEAL Sniper Program that trained some of America's finest and deadliest warriors - including Marcus Luttrell and Chris Kyle - that makes his story so compelling. Luttrell credits Webb's training with his own survival during the ill-fated 2005 Operation Redwing in Afghanistan.

Kyle went on to become the U.S. military's top marksman, with more than 150 confirmed kills.

From a candid chronicle of his student days, going through the sniper course himself, to his hair-raising close calls with Taliban and al Qaeda forces in the northern Afghanistan wilderness, to his vivid account of designing new sniper standards and training some of the most accomplished snipers of the 21st century, Webb provides a rare look at the making of the Special Operations warriors who are at the forefront of today's military.

Explosive, revealing, and intelligent, The Red Circle provides a uniquely personal glimpse into one of the most challenging and secretive military training courses in the world.

A portion of proceeds from this book will go towards The Red Circle Charitable Foundation, which helps families of fallen Special Operations Warriors.

    " Loved the first paragraph...and really liked the rest of the book! Definitely a book you should read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jordan | 2/16/2014

    " Great book. I've read a number of these (military history) and this is up there in regard to the Navy SEAL books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gary | 2/10/2014

    " Very informative. A fast easy read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kris | 2/4/2014

    " Absolutely compelling story about Brandon Webb's journey to becoming a Navy SEAL and his work to improve the SEAL's sniper training course. Lots of good life lessons and principles come out of this great book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Salma | 2/1/2014

    " I've read a few SEAL autobiographies and this has to be my favourite out of the bunch (Chris Kyle and Marcus Lutrell's were the others). Well-written, fast paced and detailed. He spent a lot of time discussing the training (two-thirds of the novel) but that's really what the basis of being someone of his skill does, practice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Burkman | 1/29/2014

    " Well written and easy to follow. Brandon brings to life the perspective of a special op's warrior in the war against terror. His attention to detail is excellent without over indulgence in a level of detail that would detract from the story. Reading it increased my appreciation and understanding of the training and life of a Seal. The risks are high the cost of error can be devastating and deadly. This was a rewarding read that I'd recommend to anyone interested in understanding the commitment and investment required in becoming one of the best the military can provide. "

    " Interesting but not greatly informative. The material is engaging but I felt there was a lot of detail not written about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric Lutz | 12/29/2013

    " Great book about the training and process of becoming a SEAL and sniper as well. Kind of long with less action than "American Sniper", however, I like the details and different viewpoints about training and tactics. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Mccollom | 12/29/2013

    " Very well done. Goes beyond the SEAL training that we've all seen on tv to what it really takes to be part on an elite group. It's 90% in the head, not in the biceps. A study in leadership and perseverance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 P.e.lolo | 11/26/2013

    " I thought this was a good book. I liked how he talked about the teaching of snipers very interesting. Could not get over the amount of u.s. weapons found he first got over there, sad. Heroes once again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jerry | 8/30/2013

    " I knew that the SEALS had a very rigorous training program and high dropout rate - but this really tells you what they go through and how well prepared and important they are in a world of asymmetrical warfare! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn Shapiro | 8/22/2013

    " The first part of the book was tough for to get through. It was a lot of detail, and a little slow for me. I do have a new appreciation for the level of training these heroes go through. The second half was an easier read, and I enjoyed it! "

    " Terrific account of life as a SEAL after Hell Week...as Webb writes, Hell Week is just the first test...then the real training begins. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam Reed | 9/29/2012

    " Very hard book to put down. Gives the reader a tertiary perspective of what it's like to become a Seal. I found it very inspiring/motivating. Really enjoyed hearing about his child and adolescent experiences as well! "
