Publisher Description

In 1991 the United States and coalition forces liberated Kuwait after its brief occupation by Saddam Hussein’s Iraq. One of the abiding memories of that conflict was the activities of the coalition’s special forces soldiers deep in Iraq, hunting down SCUD missiles and their launchers before they could be fired on Israel. Since that date, elite military formations have played an increasingly important role in the policing of the modern world. Special Forces in Action is a detailed account of the operations of the world’s special forces over the last 20 years. From the Gulf War to the invasion of Iraq, via the war in Afghanistan, the search for war criminals in the Balkans, the drug baron hunting in South America, hostage rescues in Africa, and the counter-terrorist initiatives since 9/11, and the killing of Osama Bin Laden, the book brings the reader full details of the often clandestine activities of the world’s elite soldiers. Illustrated with action photographs, Special Forces in Action shows how the world’s special forces have become a vital part of any government’s military machine, and the parts they have played in recent world events. With an authoritative text and rare photographs, the book is a highly illustrated guide to the recent operations of these most secretive – and successful – soldiers.
