Special Forces Operations in Afghanistan Osprey Publishing
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Intelligence specialist Leigh Neville identifies, describes and illustrates the Special Operations Forces (SOF) of the British, American and other Coalition forces committed to the 'War on Terror' in Afghanistan since 2001, providing a fascinating insight into specific operations detailing weapons, equipment and experiences in combat. With a surprising amount of recently declassified material from government departments that are yet to be published in the mass media, this is a ground-breaking analysis of the largest mobilization of Special Forces in recent history. With extensive first-hand accounts providing an eyewitness perspective of the fighting on the ground and including information on the British SAS, the US Delta Force, Australian and Canadian special forces as well as MI6 and CIA operational units, this book provides a crucial study of their skills and successes amidst the Afghan mountains.
Fighting Dirty Inside Story ofCovert Operations fromHoChiMin Cassell Publishers Limited
From CIA operations in Eastern Europe after 1945 to the Afghan War and its legacy, "Fighting Dirty" investigates the use of secret armies. As Peter Harclerode reveals, the Afghan War was not the first time western governments have resorted to secret armies -- and not the first time one has turned against its creator. French undercover units in the Algerian war led the 1961 mutiny and tried to assassinate their own President. Others achieved great success: covert operations in Malaya and Oman defeated communist guerrilla movements, and Britain's secret war in Borneo held the line against Indonesian aggression. From MI6 and the CIA in Eastern Europe to the CIA in Tibet, the MACV-SOG in Vietnam, the SAS in Oman and the CIA in Afghanistan - this is the secret story of covert operations.
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
After nearly 20 years of SAS operations, including a never before published role in the infamous Bravo Two Zero patrol, Bob retired from the military to work as an advisor on the international commercial security circuit. Certain his most dangerous days were behind him, Bob settled into a sedate life looking after VIPs. Then 9/11 happened. Bob found himself back in war zones on assignments far more perilous than anything he had encountered in the SAS: from ferrying journalists across firing lines in The West Bank and Gaza to travelling to the heart of Osama bin Laden's Afghan lair. As part of a two-man team, Bob searched for ITN Correspondent Terry Lloyd's missing crew in Basra, Iraq, while in Afghanistan he was forced to spend the night as the only Westerner in Khost -- with a $25,000 bounty on his head. As the War on Terror escalated, Bob contended with increasingly sophisticated insurgents. But the most disturbing development he witnessed was much closer to home: The Circuit's rise from a niche business staffed by top veterans into an unregulated, billion dollar industry that too often places profits above lives. This is a pulse-racing and at times shocking testament to what is really happening, on the ground, in the major trouble spots of the world.
