9780809486007: Special Forces and Missions (New Face of War)

This entry in Time-Life Books' "The New Face of War" series takes a look at the men and missions of America's special-ops organizations. Few individuals combine the native intelligence, stamina, self-confidence, and resourcefulness necessary for the arduous work that is required of these elite forces. If there is a single trait that characterizes these modern warriors, it is a ferociously assertive can-do attitude, a belief in their own invincibility. It shines through whether they are asked to help whip a friendly army into shape or to kill the enemy, unhesitatingly, with almost unimaginable violence, often in face-to-face encounters. Against many of the threats found throughout the world today, a few highly trained men of steadfast resolve may accomplish more than all a nation's tanks and infantry to achieve a political goal by force, whether they train others to do the shooting or take direct action themselves.
