    One thought on “American Heroes in Special Operations”

    1. Great book. Not only does North detail some of the kinds of missions SPECOPS soldiers perform in Iraq and Afghanistan, he also introduces the reader to units that aren't as well known as the SEALs or Special Forces. He includes Air Force PJs and JTACs, CIA Special Activities and DEA units on the ground in the war on terror.

    2. American Heroes in Special Operations gives an in-depth look into the hearts, minds, and operations of our elite heroes. It's easy as a observer to idolize these heroes who sacrifice everything, but this book gave me a deeper perspective and appreciation of those sacrifices. With North and Holton embedded with these elite warriors, readers are able to see the intricacies and frustrations these men face on a daily basis. What we see on the news is often slanted and a mere sliver of the truth, and [...]

    3. Big week and big day here @ The Scoop. We are leading off the day with a book that reveals some amazing real life heroes, humanizes them, describes them as real people, and then details the moments of true valor they had. It is hard not to turn the pages in this book and not have a sense of awe at the sacrifices these men and women make on a daily basis so we can enjoy the types of freedoms that we have as Americans. I want to share a few things from and about the book so maybe you can understan [...]

    4. I struggled with the rating for this book because I feel unpatriotic giving anything less than a 5 to a book about guys as BA as these special operators. However, I'll give it three and this disclaimer. I really was blown away by the stories in this book. The men that serve our country in the special operations forces are an incredible group. As I heard each story I would compare it to the stories I knew about the medal of honor winners and couldn't help but wonder why we don't have significantl [...]

    5. The premise of the book is great: to showcase the courage and skill of US Special Forces troops. The execution of the book, however, is disappointing. The descriptions of Special Ops actions feel almost clinical, focusing too much on technicalities and military jargon and not enough on the soldiers and their personal stories. There are some good chapters, but there are many more chapters that are lacking. Each chapter focuses on a military operation from the last ten years, briefly introducing t [...]

    6. There have been many magnificent war stories Novels, but this one tops them all. Special Operations shows us the real life pictures of the Iraq war, and the Soldiers who participate in the Special operations, who go threw this every day. Special Operations, By Oliver North is an extremely splendid novel because of the way the author creates realistic details and shows devastating pictures that explain the whole war from inside the front line, and his marvelous pages credited to dead war heroes a [...]

    7. This book, written by Lt. Colonel Oliver North & Chuck Holten of Fox News, gives the reader into the actions of the various special warfare teams that are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. For a period of time, the authors were embedded with these teams, Navy SEALS, Army Rangers, Air Force Pararescuemen (PJ's)and others, giving the reader a first hand view from the battlefield. gives the average During their time with the various teams, several members perform what we are to perceive as "hero [...]

    8. Good inspirational read for anyone with an interest in today's US Special Operations forces. Not very deep, but enough to stimulate interest in additional research and reading if the desire is there. North presents the men, mission and equipment in a non-technical, easy to understand manner. If you're intimidate or simply annoyed by "mil-speak" you'll appreciate his style. If you're a veteran or serious student of military operations and equipment, you may be disappointed at the lack of detail.O [...]

    9. Wow. Real American heroes their heroic acts are detailed and accompanied with their photos and background stories. I felt humbled and inspired reading their stories. I had to take a break midway though - the loss of so many good men is hard to take. Imagine Black Hawk Down but with real people and real stories. It ripped my heart out to read such good men struggle through hellish situations and often make the ultimate sacrifice. I cried my way through it it was a good hurt though - acknowledgi [...]

    10. I have been a fan of Col. Oliver North for some time and I know when he writes about the military, his writings are based on fact, truth, honor, and love. For he served his country with great honor and he knows what the military person has gone through.This book does not fail in sharing about the lives of those men who are fighting and at times dying for our liberty.They are the best what America is about.Great job Col. Oliver North.

    11. This was an incredibly difficult book for me to read as a woman and a wife, especially as I recognized several of the men featured in this book who have lost their lives defending my freedom. I may never understand what motivates men to serve their country at such an elite level, but I am grateful for their sacrifices. This book is destined to become a classic in this genre.

    12. This book will make you appreciate all people in the military. I learned a lot about the training of Special Forces and admire their unbelievable dedication and courage! It is amazing how these young men and women are so dedicated to their mission. I thank God for each of them who are willing to fight so we can be free.

    13. This book is clearly one of the best books I have read in a long long time. The heroics featured in these stories will amaze you. Honestly, this should be required reading. Oliver North and Chuck Holton are simply speaking on behalf of those too modest or otherwise unavailable to tell their tales. Please read this. Invest your time in getting to know these stories.

    14. I listen to this book on my iPod driving to and from school, work, and clinicals. A very well written/read book. I like how at then end of each story the named the men who had lost their lives and a little information about them.

    15. This is many of the amazing stories of our heroes slaying bodies across the world.It's great to be able to read a story in just a few pages and get some motivation. A few of the stories were so interesting, I had to go look up the full, detailed version.

    16. It was a good books us to understand more the great sacrifice our troops make and the extremely hard work they do for us every day

    17. Very interesting book with very good stores. Recommended read. I've already read some of the stories in Roberts' Ridge and Lone Survivor but still these need to be told.

    18. I am in awe of what our special forces are trained to do and of their dedication, bravery and patriotism. Everyone should be more aware of what they do to protect our way of life.
