In 1991 the United States and coalition forces liberated Kuwait after its brief occupation by Saddam Hussein’s Iraq. One of the abiding memories of that conflict was the activities of the coalition’s special forces soldiers deep in Iraq, hunting down SCUD missiles and their launchers before they could be fired on Israel. Since that date, elite military formations have played an increasingly important role in the policing of the modern world. Special Forces in Action is a detailed account of the operations of the world’s special forces over the last 20 years. From the Gulf War to the invasion of Iraq, via the war in Afghanistan, the search for war criminals in the Balkans, the drug baron hunting in South America, hostage rescues in Africa, and the counter-terrorist initiatives since 9/11, and the killing of Osama Bin Laden, the book brings the reader full details of the often clandestine activities of the world’s elite soldiers. Illustrated with action photographs, Special Forces in Action shows how the world’s special forces have become a vital part of any government’s military machine, and the parts they have played in recent world events. With an authoritative text and rare photographs, the book is a highly illustrated guide to the recent operations of these most secretive – and successful – soldiers.

World War II saw elite units take a prominent role on the battlefield for the first time. The Encyclopedia of Elite Forces in the Second World War is a wide-ranging guide to the excellent units on land, sea or in the air whose success was usually hard- won against the odds, and whose actions had an impact on the course of the fighting around them. The best units from both sides of the fighting are represented, as are the two main theatres of war. Arranged by combatant nation, the book covers such famous units as the US Rangers, British SAS and German Waffen-SS, as well as some of the less well-known units like Popski’s Private Army, the Long Range Desert Group and KG200. Not all the units featured in the book were officially designated as elite forces - indeed, some of those involved were only ordinary soldiers -but they achieved elite status through their deeds. Illustrated with black-and-white and color action photographs, The Encyclopedia of Elite Forces in the Second World War is a comprehensive guide to the elite forces of both sides during the 1939-45 war. Each entry describes the unit's strength, date of formation and gives a brief overview of its combat record during the war. Covering all aspects of warfare and both the European and Pacific theatres in World War II, the book will appeal to anyone with an interest in either World War II or elite units at war.
