Abstract:

Perhaps the most striking of heroic images, crack forces like the US Delta Force and British SAS hit the headlines with dramatic and daring feats when they are called upon to deal with seemingly irretrievable crises. But how much do we really know about these highly sophisticated combat units? Ultimate Special Forces, written by Hugh McManners, a former commando and defense correspondent for the London Sunday Times, traces the discipline and principles behind each force and reveals their little-known techniques, specialized equipment, and outstanding military achievement by land, sea, and air.
