Summary
Each branch of the U.S. military supports a group dedicated to what are broadly labeled "special operations." Working in small teams, these extraordinarily well trained and disciplined forces rely on stealth, surprise, speed, and accurate intelligence to accomplish their objectives, which include reconnaissance behind enemy lines, assaulting well-defended enemy military bases and airfields, and rescuing soldiers and hostages. Pulitzer Prize winning photographer David Bohrer received unusual access to special forces training in all four military branches and presents a volume dominated by color photographs of men and equipment. His supporting text describes in detail the rigorous training these individuals endure, the high-tech equipment they use, and audacious missions they carry out.
