18 Hours: The True Story of an SAS War Hero

By Sandra Lee

HarperCollins, Australia, 2007. Softcover. Very Good Condition. The true story of 18 hellish hours for a soldier in Afghanistan. Jock Wallace was pumped. It was the start of Operation Anaconda, the US-led military offensive to flush out al Qaeda and taliban from their last stronghold in the Shahi Kot Valley in Afghanistan. If intelligence reports were correct, there were between 100 and 250 enemy fighters holed up in the extensive cave systems in the mountain ridges around the beautiful valley. But reports can be wrong. Minutes after the combat-ready troops stormed down the back ramps of the Chinook helicopters, Jock's company was under fire. Eighteen hours of hell was just beginning. With machine-gun bullets dancing about the soldiers' feet, and mortars and rocket-propelled grenades raining down on them, it seemed the al Qaeda terorrists and taliban fighters had them trapped. But there was no way Jock was going down without a fight. Nor were the men he was with. Holding off the enemy, rescuing the injured, reporting to base, calling in air support - Jock gave it all that he had. He was not going to die on foreign soil, not at the hands of al Qaeda. 366 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Military; Military & Warfare; ISBN: 0732282462.

Seal Target Geronimo: The Inside Story of the Mission to Kill Osama Bin Laden

By Chuck Pfarrer

Quercus, Great Britain, 2012. Softcover. Near Fine Condition. On May 2, 2011, at 1:03 a.m. in Pakistan, a satellite uplink was sent from the town of Abbottabad crackling into the situation room of the White House in Washington, D.C.: 'Geronimo, Echo, KIA'. These words, spoken by a Navy SEAL, put paid to Osama bin Laden's three-decade-long career of terror. This is the story of Bin Laden's relentless hunters and how they took down the terrorist mastermind, told by Chuck Pfarrer, a former assault element commander of SEAL Team Six. After talking to members of the SEAL team involved in the raid, Pfarrer shares never-before-revealed details of the historic raid and the men who planned and conducted it in an exclusive boots-on-the-ground account of what happened during each minute of the mission - both inside the building and outside. Pfarrer takes readers inside the operation as the SEALs flew over the wall of Bin Laden's shabby compound and then penetrated deeper and deeper into the terrorist's lair, telling us just what it looked, sounded, and smelled like in that sweltering Pakistani suburb. He takes us to the exact spot where the al-Qaeda leader was cowering when the bullet entered his head. SEAL Target Geronimo is an explosive story of unparalleled valour, clockwork military precision, and deadly accuracy carried out by one of the most elite fighting forces in the world - the U.S. Navy's SEAL Team Six. 339 pages.

The Making of a Royal Marine Commando

By Nigel Foster

Presidio, Great Britain, 1987. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Good. Who exactly are the Royal Marines Commandos and what makes them so special? Why do so many other countries regard the Royal Marines as being the finest soldiers in the world? How do the Corps manage to maintain such high standards in the face of continuing financial cutbacks? What sort of man wants to become a Royal Marine, and what sort of man is ultimately selected? In this completely updated edition, Nigel Foster provides a contemporary account of life with the Corps. He also explains why amphibious operations have become such a cornerstone of British and American strategic thinking, and examines the Special Boat Service, considered by many to be a more extreme and effective unit than the SAS. He also explains the true meaning of the Commando spirit and why the Green Beret is so highly prized by all those who have been privileged to wear it. 190 pages. Quantity Available: 1.
