Shadow Warriors   (book)

Shadow Warriors: Inside the Special Forces
Shadow Warriors: Inside the Special Forces

Military history and the different forces, political and otherwise, at work in the military are very interesting to me. This book by Tom Clancy and retired General Carl Stiner is a crash course in the history of many overseas military conflicts, and the different ways they are handled and possibly resolved. Much of the book is about the development of the US military's special forces - units like the Green Berets, the Army Rangers, the Navy SEALs, etc. Clancy and Stiner trace the need for and use of these units over many decades, establishing sometimes disturbing patterns in miltary thought.
