In America's war against terrorism, Special Operations ForcesSOFsplay a huge role. But who are they? What have they done in previous conflicts? How do they train for a war that the President has said will be like no other?

Their proud heritage goes back to the daring commando missions of World War II. Green Berets, Rangers, Delta Force, Navy SEALs, and USAF Air Commandosthese "quiet professionals" are today the best-trained and best-equipped Special Operations units in the world. Their crucial missions range from homeland security, counter-terrorism, intelligence gathering, hostage rescue, and humanitarian assistance to "direct action" combat and unconventional warfare.

Samuel A. Southworth and Stephen Tanner authoritatively describe not only the forces under the Special Operations Command (SOCOM), but also Marine Force Recon, Airborne troops, mountain infantry, and the CIA's shadowy paramilitary assets. The book concludes with "A Special Forces War," which dramatically details just how America's elite soldiers came together to win victory in Afghanistan following the September 11 attacks.
