about

Intelligence specialist Leigh Neville identifies, describes and illustrates the Special Operations Forces (SOF) of the US and other Allied (Coalition) forces committed to the 'War on Terror' in Afghanistan since 2001, providing a fascinating insight into specific operations detailing weapons, equipment and experiences in combat. With a surprising amount of recently unclassified material from government departments that are yet to be published in the mass media, this is a ground-breaking analysis of the largest mobilization of Special Forces in recent history.

Extensive first-hand accounts provide an eyewitness perspective of the fighting including a description of the assault on Tora Bora, all illustrated with an array of unpublished photos and full color artwork. Containing detailed information on the US Delta Force, the British SAS, Australian and Canadian Special Forces as well as CIA and MI6 operational units this book provides a crucial study of their skills and success amidst Afghan mountains.

Editorial Reviews

"Military libraries strong in modern operations need Special Operations Forces in Afghanistan: it's a survey of the Western response to terrorist attacks on the U.S. and describes the results achieved by specific units operating in Afghanistan. From successes to failures, chapters cover strategy, include many rare private photos and use the author's SOF contacts for unusual embellishment." -The California Bookwatch (September 2008)"In all, it is an interesting book that shows how difficult it is to operate in these areas and provides insight into past and on-going operations. One that I enjoyed reading and I know you will as well." -Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness (September 2008)
