Description

Since the attacks of September 11, one organization has been at the forefront of America's military response. Its efforts turned the tide against al-Qaida in Iraq, killed Bin Laden and Zarqawi, rescued Captain Phillips, and captured Saddam Hussein. Its commander can direct cruise missile strikes from nuclear submarines and conduct special operations raids anywhere in the world.

Relentless Strike tells the inside story of Joint Special Operations Command, the secret military organization that, during the past decade, has revolutionized counterterrorism, seamlessly fusing intelligence and operational skills to conduct missions that hit the headlines and those that have remained in the shadows - until now. Because JSOC includes the military's most storied special operations units - Delta Force, SEAL Team Six, the 75th Ranger Regiment - as well as America's most secret aviation and intelligence units, this is their story, too.

Relentless Strike reveals tension-drenched meetings in war rooms from the Pentagon to Iraq and special operations battles from the cabin of an MH-60 Black Hawk to the driver's seat of Delta Force's Pinzgauer vehicles as they approach their targets. Through exclusive interviews, reporter Sean Naylor uses his unique access to reveal how an organization designed in the 1980s for a very limited mission set transformed itself after 9/11 to become the military's premier weapon in the war against terrorism and how it continues to evolve today.

Meticulous

I was still in the military for a year after the 9/11 attack and have many friends who served after I left, some in JSOC.

This is a fascinating and meticulously researched account of the development of our most elite operators and their unit structures/capabilities. I highly recommend it and would also suggest Team of Teams, as well as The Mission, The Men, And Me.

Awesome

This is a must read for anyone wanting to learn more or to know about special operations and what these people do for us. These men and women do this every day without asking for any sort of recognition or thanks.

Fascinating History of JSOC!

A must read for anyone interested in US military history. The storyline is detailed but does jump around throughout the years so readers must pay attention to detail or may get lost in the events. The narrator does a great job keeping your interest throughout the book. Overall, this is an excellent book and provides readers a fascinating look into US special operations.

Horrible narrator

Every sentence the narrator says... ends the exact same way. Whether its something exciting... or its dull and drab. Every sentence is read... like its the last sentence of the book. The only thing this guy should be narrating... is a childrens christmas book.

Listen to the clip before you buy and youll see why i wrote them like that.

Insight

Extremely hard to swallow all the glaring evidence that policymakers don't work for us. Hopefully people will read this and not forget history.

A must read to understand contemporary military history

An excellent historical treatment of the US military's "black" special operations units, tactics, equipment and actions, from its historic roots in the Iranian desert, to its most recent operations against the Islamic State. Excellent narrator, and well written.

unbelievable

Makes me feel like I did nothing in my time of service haha but filled me with a great deal of respect for all the JSOC guys. it's like I knew they were amazing but reading their stories shed a new light on it all. Nice to see the author included a lot about the CAG dudes and Ranger BN's since the SEALs seem to get all the glory being as they write books and make movies about 12 times a year. either way, amazing book, read it.

Don't Talk About It...

I was deployed with SOF (not to be confused with JSOC) when this book published. We were explicitly told, "you can read it,but don't talk about it." (i.e., discussing stuff that's still classified despite being in this book).

I'm not going to talk about it or even really review this book. However, as an intel guy in SOF I appreciated the history on TFO, where previously I only had Bowden's, 'Killing Pablo' to reference.
