Publisher Comments:

Go inside the elite and often-covert world of today's Special Forces. Superbly trained, these special operations commandos are the world's ultimate military (and para-military) tacticians. Learn about their stealthy organization, their training, uniforms and equipment, and their specially developed weapons. Fabulously illustrated with dramatic action photos, this timely reference highlights both the need for and the rapid deployment of today's Special Forces. See them in action!

His specific awareness of Mathew Brady's work came from a longtime interest in early photography, the American Civil War, and US postage stamp design, for which numerous attributed and unattributed Brady photos have been used as sources.Ray Bonds has been a defense journalist, editor, and publisher during a career spanning over thirty five years, covering periods and activities as wide ranging as the American Civil War, anti-ballistic missile systems, stealth warfare, and modern military intelligence gathering.
