My family and I are glad that we have the men and the will to create, deploy and support a unit such as this. I hope that we can all learn what it means to be an American from this book and the Night Stalkers.
Read this book - you will not be disappointed! NSDQ

I am keeping this book (i received a free copy) for my son so when he is older he can read about what his grandfather did and about the silent heroes who put their lives on the line to keep America safe. I would actually purchase this book if I hadn't received the free copy, and would love to see it on the Kindle-it would definitely be worth having! It's also neat to read about men who I knew and to think about their families whom I was/am close to.Read more ›
It's really a shame that the American taxpayer cannot see all they are getting for their tax dollars from the members of the 160th, and the units they support. SPEC OPS is perhaps the biggest bang for the buck in the military today. I'm glad some of the declassified missions were able to come to the light of day. NSDQ! Night Stalker 1986 - 1998
As a former member of this regiment, Mr. Durant is evidently well prepared to tell the stories "from within". Unfortunately, as with so many books dealing with the rather secretive Special Forces, the need to keep (still widely used) tactics and procedures secret means that sometimes many interesting facets of the operations are kept untold. At least I found myself (too) many times asking "why" and "how", without finding any answers in the book.
Nevertheless, the brief glimpse that the reader is allowed into this secretive world reveals a long succession of very professional men (and women) with a strong dedication to their job and a deep sense of duty and honor. The overall reading experience is positive and interesting, it's just that many times you wish the authors would be allowed to tell us more of the full story behind the few facts uncovered. In case you wonder, only the truly gripping description of the (failed) mission in Afghanistan is well worth the price of the book!
Overall, the authors provide us with a unique insight into an area of the US military forces that is usually invisible for us "mortals", and does so in an interesting and engaging way - recommended.
Already among my favourites.
I think this is one of the most descriptive accounts about what the Night Stalkers do and a very detailled description of the few missions that can be talked about.
An excellent book.
