9780786718269: The Mammoth Book of Special Ops: The 40 Most Dangerous Special Operations of Modern Times (Mammoth Books)

The shadowy activities of special forces have grown into an increasingly exposed element of 21st century warfare and anti-terrorist activity. Here, in one giant volume, are 30 of the most dangerous special operations of modern times. Drawn from the flashpoints of the world, and above all Iraq and Afghanistan, these first-hand and reported accounts of missions by the Delta Force, Green Berets, SAS, Commandos, and other forces will leave you on the edge of your seat. The accounts include Blackhawk Down — the US Delta forces debacle in Mogadishu, Somalia, 1993; British Special forces fight Al Qaeda at close quarters in Afghanistan 2003; Task Force Raider — US Special forces teams track down of Saddam Hussein, 2003; the British 'Blackhawk Down' — Paras shoots their way out of trouble in Majar, Iraq 2003; and the capture of insurgent leader Chemical Evil Fat Mama, Fallujah, November 2003.
