Excellent research Mr. Martin! If you like this bit here you can read more of Chris Martin at SOFREP.com where his articles continue to be thoroughly researched, vetted and provide much information to all (that is the opinion of this reviewer). DISCLAIMER: The only vestment I have in Chris Martin's success is to read more of his work. Other than that I do not know any more about him than what he chooses to write about, so save the "paid advertisement" accusations for someone else. Compliments aren't always used to get something from somebody, they're occasionally used to congratulate as well.
You can see some of Chris's work on SOFREP.com
If you are looking for something that reads like a novel, or want to read about specific battles or "operations" in detail then you may be disappointed. However, for the price, if you have any interest in this topic I strongly urge you to give this book a try!
There are several things that I feel are not fully fleshed out and addressed in the book, which keep me from giving it 5 stars. Organization, training, equipment, and quality of life for families and operators are all topics on which the reader will not learn much new. All these are topics which can be touched upon without revealing tactics, techniques, or procedures (TTP's) that would place operators in danger. Everything Martin uses has been previously published, and so he does not tread new ground in anything he covers. However, his analysis is missing in exploring deeper on what this can mean, and what people should take away from it.Read more ›
