Summary
The war in Afghanistan has given the public an unprecedented look at what America's special forces can do--their extraordinary skill and stamina and the sacrifices they are willing to make. Now, Tom Clancy and Carl Stiner--the second commander of SOCOM, the U.S. Special Operations Command--take readers deep inside the history, training, resourcefulness, and creativity of the Special Forces soldier. These are first-hand accounts of soldiers fighting outside the lines: counterterrorism, raids, hostage rescues, reconnaissance, counter-insurgency, and psychological operations-from Vietnam and Laos to Lebanon, from Panama to Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Iraq, to the new wars of today
Summary
A look at the U.S. military Special Forces, during the last five decades, through the eyes of retired general Carl Stiner, who has spent many years leading America's Special Forces in such missions as Desert Storm and the Panama invasion
