Reviews

"This book is not limited to US Delta forces in Iraq, but provides detail on Special Forces from other nations including Britain, Australia, and Canada. Equipment, clothing, and vehicles are key components included and color illustrations are provided by Richard Hook. However, the majority of the book is dedicated to detailing some of the recently uncovered operations conducted by the Special Forces since 2003. Much of the war has been criticized by the media and population in general; however, this text is able to accentuate the successes of those fighting behind enemy lines and often in highly dangerous situations. Packed full of color illustrations and photographs provided by those in the field, this is an excellent resource for those with a penchant for the military." --Timothy Baghurt, The Traveler (January 2009)"Special Operations Forces in Iraq, by Leigh Neville, provides a brief, yet comprehensive overview of special operations forces (SOF) from around the world that have participated in Operation Iraqi Freedom... While that alone could easily fill up 64 pages, Neville still managed to squeeze in a rather thorough description of the operator's weaponry and kit (I'm talking right down to the brand of gloves worn). The book highlights the many SOF successes in Iraq, which like Afghanistan, has proven their significance in achieving strategic objectives in both modern and asymmetric warfare. Bottom line: The book is a must read for those interested in learning more about Special Operations Forces in Iraq." --Shadowspear.com (January 2009)"Leigh Neville's Special Operations Forces in Iraq draws on the author's SOF contacts in several countries and pack in recently declassified materials to offer first-hand accounts and photos of IRaw. Military collections strong in SOF history and modern warfare will find this a fine addition." --The Bookwatch (February 2009)
