Review of Tom Clancy's Special Forces
I gave this book 5 stars because I knew what it was going to be when I purchased it. It is a documentary-style book outlining the training that United States Army Special Forces soldiers go through. There is a fictional mission toward the end of the book that is Tom's take on the kind of mission that a Special Forces team would undertake. A good informational read for those interested on what it takes to become an SF guy. One caveat, however, is that, of course, their training is constantly changing. It is still a good overview, though.
