There are no greater American Heroes than those who serve in Special Operations. Semper Fidelis, Oliver North. A note about terminology

There are no greater American Heroes than those who serve in Special Operations. War is an inherently dangerous undertaking. It is especially so for those who conduct small unit actions deep in hostile territory, far from the nearest "friendlies. A note about terminology. The world of Special Operations is nebulous and full of mystery and so it isn't surprising it is easy to become confused by some of the terms you will read in this book.

This is the second book by Ollie North I purchased. I must say I liked this one better, though his Heroes book is very good as well. If you are interested in the Iraq & Afghanistan wars, his books explain away a lot of the politics & dynamics behind the missions in a way that doesn't bore the reader. He is fair to include every branch & type of service with his stories, explaining specific roles & missions that our military & civilian people do everyday so we can rest easy. In my opinion, Mr. North is a hero among his heroes. You can almost feel the respect of the people who had the honor of having his presence among them in the heat of the battles. This is not a book written by the sidelines, this was done at war as a FOX News correspondent. Bravo Mr. North! I'll be buying more. Thank you for your service & your bravery & fortitude for opening my eyes about what really went on.

I bought this because one of the stories is about my brother-in-law who died in Afghanistan. The book and stories are okay. I think the reason I don't give it a better rating is because the stories are all very short and don't give much detail. It might not really be fair to rate a book of "short stories" by their length and content. I don't really know if a "short story" could be more interesting. My judgement might not be fair. It may be that I'm just the type of person who really likes to get into a story and hear everything there is to know. This just didn't do it for me, but might be a great book for those who aren't big readers and would just like to hear the basics about what happened in each event.

Its a great book, written with utmost respect. Theres a saying that goes back probably a couple of thousand years, about war fighters, and it goes something like this: "Of the 100 soldiers you sent me, 90 are totally out of place and barely able to function. 8 are well trained and will take the fight to the enemy. But 2 are true warriors who can perform under extraordinary stress, and its thanks to those 2 that the whole 100 are likely to return home"
...or words to that effect. This book is basically filled with stories about the 2%. God bless them.

Not a particularly well written book, but more of a summary of newspaper articles with some insight. The men depicted deserve our heartfelt thanks and appreciation, but don't look for more than a written documentary would provide. The book is extended a bit with a summary of the actual action-award ceremony given to each recipient at the end of each story. It's more of a collection of war stories as told to an interviewing reporter. I respect Col. North for his dedication & daring, but a writer he's not.

I bought this book largely for the photographs after looking through it at the library. I wanted to own it. It served its purpose as a great, general photo reference for Spec Ops for the early part of OIF and OEF. In talking to a few operators that were in Afghanistan at the outset of our endeavor there, I learned that they were forbidden to take pictures and if they did, any personal photos were not made readily available to anyone outside of the community. So there are no pictures of guys wearing RBA vests with Desert Storm era PAGST helmets painted tan carrying briefcases full of cash whilst on horseback with the Northern Alliance or Pashtuns. And once the 'Big Army' showed up, these Spec Ops guys mostly wore civvies or whatever they wanted (lots of private purchase stuff early on I was told)

The synopsis' of the various missions are well done and I am not sure without looking how many of the photos are DoD releases or posted elsewhere besides in the book but the pics are helpful for seeing the equipment and uniforms used. And, I also really like Ollie North. He is the product of another time in our nations history . He is the real deal and even if he only gets a fraction of a penny for every copy sold, I want to support him. This book is written in conjunction with FOX news (North works for them still, I think) so it is pro-military. No rumblings about collateral damage or questioning the mission as a whole. It just gives a glimpse into the missions of these brave soldiers. Buy it. Cannot find a single reason not endorse the book.

Oliver North is writing about another "Greatest Generation" that is on the horizon. The missions are intense and the results don't always have a happy ending; there have been many sacrifices made to keep our shores safe since the terror attacks of 2001. Oliver North lets the reader know about Army, Navy, Airforce, Marine and DEA operatives that are at work around the clock and around the world. I read "Special Operations" along with the the book about finding Bin Laden ("Manhunt: The Ten Year Search for Bin Laden..") and they are both excellent reads if military stuff is your interest.
