Shadow Warriors inside the Special Forces

By: Tom Clancy and General Carl Stiner (Ret.)

During any given week, an average of more than 3,500 Special Operations Forces (SOF) are deployed overseas and some sixty-nine countries. Their missions range from counterdrug assistance and demining to peacekeeping, disaster relief, military training assistance, and many other special mission activities. As such, they function as instruments of US national policy, and develop relationships with the militaries and governments of the hose nations in a best serves our national interests now and in the future.

Needless to say, however, some of these missions and capabilities are sensitive and cannot be revealed for national security reasons. Likewise, the names of some of the personnel, as well as family members, must be protected for personal security reasons.

What I like most about this book is that it had a lot of high intensity action. Its really not one story, its comprised of many missions that the Navy Seals, Army Rangers, and Night Commandoes had to go on. There was this one mission the Navy Seals where sent out to complete. It involved a terrorist’s high jacked cruise ship out in the Mediterranean Sea. When the Seals got there though, they didn’t have anywhere to land the Black Hawk so they used the rope and dropped down into the sea. They welded there way into the hull and started the “Search and Destroy” mission. They got to the control tower and there where fourteen to fifteen terrorists on board. It took the Seals exactly 46 minutes and takes back control of the ship and guide it to the nearest American port. There was yet another case of terrorism boiling up in Tehran. A mob was invading and American Embassy. Fifty three people became hostages to the new religious led Iranian revolutionary government.
