    " This book opened a whole new world of unconventional warfare and military history to me. A really great book on special forces from WWII and beyond. "

    " My dad is mentioned briefly in this book, and I can't help but love it because it's true and good account of the lives of SF ops and keep his memory alive. It makes me so proud of his work. "

    " Factual reading. Interesting details. Not a life changer. If you are into military history and especially special ops its worth a look. "
