I am surprised at the level of detail that this book gets into - while it is a fairly thin book, relatively speaking, the pages are large and contains a ton of excellent quality images. Each page is packed with detail, breakdowns of historical missions and has a wealth of information about the equipment, techniques and tactics that special forces use on a daily basis. Well worth the purchase.
