Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

France today maintains a strong global presence. Investment bankers may have replaced foreign legionnaires in Africa, Indo-China and the Middle East. but French government and business plays an active role throughout the world. To safeguard foreign installations and individuals, and to provide security for Metropolitan France itself. France has concentrated all its air land and sea special forces in a single Special Operations Command, or COS.<P>As always, the many illustrations gathered here by Histoire & Collections are of inestimable value to collectors, gamers and military buffs. Micheletti opens up an unknown (in the U.S.) world of intrigue and special warfare. French special forces are active in Guiana, Chad Tahiti and Diibouti, facing everything from well-intentioned environmentalists to hard-core terrorists. COS also provides extra security for French forces in Saudi Arabia and Bosnia.<P>American readers will also learn here for the first time about France's secret war in Corsica, a war the U.S. media feels Americans "wouldn't be interested in." Full details of French counter-terror aid to Algeria are still under wraps, but readers will also gain some insights into this developing trouble spot.
