Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0007199376, Hardcover)

A fully-illustrated account of the status and role of Special Forces today and what the future holds in view of dramatic advances in technology, their increasing use as political enforcers and the changing face of the battlefield. Including histories of individual units, selection and training procedures, tactics and equipment, The Operators is an extraordinary insight into Special Forces. World-renowned units such as the SAS, Delta Force, French Foreign Legion and Germany's GSG-9 are all covered in detail with personal accounts of recent operations, as are lesser-known specialist outfits including Spain's anti-terrorist Unidad Especial de Intervencion (UEI) and Japan's Special Assault Team. Every unit, tactic and weapon is backed up with photographs of it in action, as well as testimony from operators in the field and a full analysis of its effectiveness.
