About the Book

From New York Times bestselling author William Doyle, a gripping, definitive history of the most elite soldiers on the planet, the U.S. Army Special Forces.

They are the best of the best of the United States Army, tasked with undertaking its most dangerous missions, including hostage rescue, counter-terrorism operations, and special reconnaissance. Army Special Ops is the first comprehensive history of these elite heroes skilled in unconventional warfare who risk—and often have sacrificed—their lives in service to the nation, including the Green Berets, Rangers, Night Stalkers, and Delta Force. 

America’s Special Forces soldiers have been involved in many of the most famous military activities of the last seventy-five years, from fulfilling key strategic objectives in Europe and the Pacific in the Second World War, to infiltrating enemy lines in Vietnam, to engaging in the bloody firefight known as the Battle of Mogadishu—captured in the bestselling book and film Black Hawk Down—to capturing and killing Osama bin Laden in a midnight raid. William Doyle relates these stories and many more in thrilling detail, and explores how Special Forces have responded to the shifting nature of modern warfare today.

Based on thousands of pages of declassified files and interviews with the military personnel who have helped shape history,  Army Special Ops introduces the epic personalities and chronicles many of their hair-raising, seemingly impossible missions, rescues, and assaults. Filled with epic stories of military heroism, this thrilling history pays tribute to the tragedies and triumphs of the soldiers of U.S. Army Special Operations, from their founding during World War II through the wars in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan, to today.
