Special Forces: War on Terror

British special forces lead the world. The Green Berets and Delta Force in the U.S. and the special forces in other countries are based on the UK’s SAS and SBS. Nigel Cawthorne looks into the activities of the British special forces since the September 11 attacks. They have close ties with the American special forces, which meant the SAS and SBS were itching to aid Britain’s most important ally. With such close ties, it was also natural that the Americans would want the British Special Forces working alongside them in Iraq and Afghanistan. This book examines the relationship between the UK’s special forces and their American counterparts as they pit themselves jointly against common enemies.
