Good illustrations and detailed accounts of counter-terrorist organizations around the world. DK has stepped up their book series on the Special Forces and actually got a lot of facts right....at least they don't have a bunch of pics with guys shouldering M-16s and M-4s.....Special OPs guys and Navy SEALs use many different firearms.....not just standard military issue ones. Anyhow, if you wanted to always find out about other countries special forces and like pictures and illustrations, this book is for you :)
