The Complete History of the Navy SEALs (1999)


This documentary video chronicles the history and the legacy of the famous United States Navy Seals. The film explores their extensive training and the tough work they are required to do.


Long before President Kennedy commissioned the Navy Seals in 1962, the Navy Combat Demolition Units were running demolition, such as on D-Day when the NCDU took over 50% casualties, and the Underwater Demolition Teams were clearing beaches.

As special forces combat teams, the role of the SEALs has evolved to see them employed in arenas of direct action, special reconnaissance, unconventional warfare, hostage rescue, counter-terrorism and other missions. This is a recollection of the stories of honour, valour, and commitment of the backbones of the Navy SEALs.
