The synopsis' of the various missions are well done and I am not sure without looking how many of the photos are DoD releases or posted elsewhere besides in the book but the pics are helpful for seeing the equipment and uniforms used. And, I also really like Ollie North. He is the product of another time in our nations history . He is the real deal and even if he only gets a fraction of a penny for every copy sold, I want to support him. This book is written in conjunction with FOX news (North works for them still, I think) so it is pro-military. No rumblings about collateral damage or questioning the mission as a whole. It just gives a glimpse into the missions of these brave soldiers. Buy it. Cannot find a single reason not endorse the book.
...or words to that effect. This book is basically filled with stories about the 2%. God bless them.
