Publisher Comments:

What does it take, both physically and mentally, to join the worlds most respected—and feared—military units? Lewis looks at the origins, training, tactics, weapons, and achievements of regiments such as Britains SAS and Paratroopers, the US Navy SEALS, Delta Force, Army Rangers and Green Berets, Russias Spetsnaz, and the Israeli Special Forces, as well as the codes that bind their members together. He looks at training in everything from wilderness survival to hand-to-hand combat.
