Gentlemen Bastards

On the Ground in Afghanistan with America's Elite Special Forces

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

The Green Berets—a legendary corps of soldiers whose exploits made military history. But now, its very identity and role as a fighting force may be forever changed . . .

Until the war in Iraq, Special Forces were the military’s counterinsurgency experts. Their specialty was going behind enemy lines and training insurgent forces. In Afghanistan, they toppled the Taliban by transforming Northern Alliance fighters into cohesive units. But since that time, Special Forces units have focused on offensive raids.

With time running short, the Green Berets have now gone back to their roots.

Award-winning journalist Kevin Maurer traveled with a Special Forces team in Afghanistan, finding out firsthand the inside story of the lives of this elite group of highly trained soldiers. He witnessed the intense brotherhood, the rigorous selection process, and the arduous training that makes them the best on the battlefield. Here, Maurer delivers a compelling account of modern warfare and of a fighting force that is doing everything in its power to achieve victory.

Awesome Book!

My dad was in Special Forces and was injured, so all I ever hear is the bad. Its always nice to read about it and hear about the "good." I just finished Horse Soldiers and it was excelent but was pretty boring. For war being boring this guy made it intresting. Hooha fight on Brothers!
