Warfare isn’t won and lost by large armies opposing each other on big battlefields. Over the past century, the use of small groups of elite special-forces has become increasingly effective. In Elite Special Forces: 75 Years of Covert Action, author Chris McLeod details some of the most daring and thrilling missions conducted by these groups. That includes the incredible story of how Seal Team Six was able to infiltrate a compound in Pakistan and kill the world’s most wanted man, Osama Bin Laden, all while the US President watched on nervously back in Washington. And many other countries also have their own special elite forces. In the United Kingdom, it’s the SAS. In Russia, it’s Spetsnaz. There are so many elite special forces that all have incredible stories to tell.
Chris McLeod was a newspaper journalist for more than 40 years and has always been keenly interested in investigative stories, particularly those with elements of mystery, conspiracy, and suspicion. Coupled with an interest in all forms of transportation, the mysteries surrounding planes that have vanished captured his attention.
