"As the [al-Qaeda terrorists] charged one wall, three Green Berets leaned over the parapets...'Focus, squeeze, focus, squeeze' they recited quietly ...Each time the lifeless body of an al-Qaida terrorist would snap back through the desert air and drop onto the sandy courtyard." The war in Afghanistan was the one of the most secret conflicts in recent history; little is known about how it was waged or what really happened - until now. Task Force Dagger: the Hunt for Bin Laden plunges the reader into America's War on Terror, from top-secret meetings on the afternoon of September 11, 2001, through to the liberation of Kabul sixty-two days later and the tragedies of Operation Anaconda - as seen through the eyes of the Green Berets on the ground. This is the story of how a few hundred men changed history and destroyed a hundred-thousand-man terrorist army in less than ninety days. Fully updated to include the 2003 war against Iraq and unique accounts of SAS involvement in both campaigns.
