The title of this book is slightly misleading in that it’s not about American justifications for various interventions but is a far more credible look at the special counter terrorism units around the world.

The title of this book is slightly misleading in that it’s not about American justifications for various interventions but is a far more credible look at the special counter terrorism units around the world. That means it takes in SWAT, RAID, GIGN, BRI, GSG9 and various elite Police units. As well as explaining about the various units though, there’s highly entertaining looks at various criminal actions that they then thwarted. These include an attempted kidnapping of Victoria Bechkam. It really puts everything into perspective and makes for a much more entertaining read than you might have been expecting. Recommended.
