"In the past thirty years, the devastating effects of international terror have forced their way into the forefront of world affairs. To counter this new threat to civilization -- and to the safety of ordinary people -- a new breed of soldier was created to fight the terrorists on their own terms. Armed to the hilt with the most hi-tech weaponry the modern military world can provide, and trained to combat the enemies of the countries they serve with a breathtakingly ruthless efficiency, the legend of these men is as awesome as the battles that they fight." -- Book jacket.
