Although, I haven't finished Combat Ops yet, but I got a feel of what's to come. This sequel is the best in my opinion, the first person thoughts of Scott Mitchell. The story involves Mitchell and his Ghost team in Afghanistan, and the are on the hunt for a terrorist who is big in the area.

The story definitely potrays, in my opinion, the chaos, confusion and incompetence of the war in Afghanistan today. I feel that it is done well. The utter chaos that Mitchell goes through is well done, the characters are excellent.

It's a very intense thriller of war and it's a definate must read.

Mission conflict: Two crack army teams operate out of the same compound near Kandahar in southern Afghanistan. One team builds; the other team kills!

Captain Harruck's team is there to win the hearts and minds of the locals. Captain Mitchell and his Ghost Recon team is there to assassinate Mullah Mohammed Zahed, the vicious Zhari district Taliban commander, and overlord of Sangsar. But, intimidation aside, the locals seem to prefer Zahed over the legitimate Afghan government.

Many of the situations Harruck and Mitchell encounter (how the U.S. army pays the Taliban for logistics support and those infamous Poppy Palaces) are right out of current newspaper articles and various white paper reports. The treatment of women as chattel is played out right down to its tragic consequences.

Through Mitchell's eyes we follow two young army captains as they confront these issues, discharge their duties, and narrowly avoid killing each other.

From Clancy I expect action and there's plenty of it here. But there's no denying this is a dark, provocative study, a thinking person's plot, maybe even an important story with a lasting message.

I'm not going to tell you about character development or editing (which were both superb) What I am going to tell you that this book should be on every Military Officer's read list. They need to have conversations about the issues of Honor, Integrity, and the Issues of Command this book brings to life. In the end, the thing most civilians don't and cannot understand is the bond between Special Operators that allows them to function under times where others would have to spend the rest of their lives under mental health care. As a mid level NCO I passed a course that had a 97% attrition rate. I was Commissioned several years after that. As a company grade officer I was forced to attend what passed for a course on how to manage a military bureaucracy. The point here is that many officers are.Now sadly managers - not leaders of men (the generic term). In the end, this is a superb book and it brought out the realities of life under fire.

Frustration of a Ghost Team is not normally what you are reading about. This book shows some of the many ways a mission can go wrong. Great read and you feel the frustration of the main character and you sympathize.

Clancy's wrote like a true & wonderful writer would do war stories. This book put you into the future if you loved war stories. Ghost Recon is a wonder, took out of a game. Clancy's experience notices when used your mind & put you inside the action. The lost of this author is really sad!

I'm not a gamer, so I've never played the Ghost Recon games. I found this to be an interesting sequel to the Ghost Recon series. The only thing I didn't like were the parts where he was talking in the third person.

This is a very captivating and eye opening novel. It reminds me of some of my experiences in the army. The background information gave the story authenticity. Hope to see more about Major Scott Mitchell.

Like many second books, this book was not nearly as good as the first. The first book was all action, keeping you turning the pages. The story of the second book drifted, poorly paced, with a weak story line.
