I'm a voracious reader of Military history, also a vet and long ago a member of Special Forces. Naturally I was very interested in this new tome about aspects of SF antecedents.
Frankly I was very disappointed in the book. It doesn't handle the information very interestingly. Volkmann and company was undoubtedly successful at what he did but the book was unsuccessful at presenting the story. Alas!
I've read five books on the First Special Service Force from whince the Special Forces Crest draws Two of its ingredients, the Crossed Arrows and the center piece, the V-42 fighting knife. Any book I've read about this amazing Canadian/American Force feeds the reader with inspiration and awe. "American Guerilla" while on the cover make you want to buy, consume and relate, essentially fails deeply in this dept! alas
