Overview

Uncover the history of specialized military forces, their mission, and the role they have played in international conflicts. This series shows young readers how special forces personnel infiltrate behind enemy lines to support guerrilla warfare operations, then go on to organize, train, equip, and direct the use of non-U.S, forces in guerrilla operations. Learn how special forces personnel are trained in survival techniques, languages, communications, weapons, first aid, and explosives. Most important, these specialized units can move quickly to any area of the world, striking by land, sea, and air, and all are specially trained to make surprise raids behind enemy lines and participate in other similarly daring operations. A celebration of true esprit de corps, these books show how special forces meet the stark challenges faced by today's modern military.
