Overview

Sometimes, the outcome of a war depends upon special forces with the skills and the daring to go beyond the call of duty—and undertake especially dangerous assignments. Dividing his accounts into commando raids, air and seaborne actions, and postwar elite missions, author David Eshel—himself a retired officer in the Israeli military—charts 39 events where special forces have played a crucial role. They range from the "bridge too far" at Arnhem to the audacious raid at Entebbe, and include early storm troopers in World War One, the Dambuster bombers, and underwater warriors. It will make clandestine operations just a little less secret. 240 pages, 35 b/w illus., 5 X 7 3/4.
