The staff of the United States Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) History Office has composed a superb picture of this war and its aftermath. The book relates the importance and effect of special forces in Iraq dirough the eyes of the soldiers involved, from planners and generals to operatives in various special-forces teams. Despite the subtitle, the study deals not only with USASOC but also with many of the conventional operations during the war, including deployments and the history of Iraq under Saddam Hussein.

When the war in Afghanistan ended in 2002, the country was largely governed by Afghans. This result came about because, rather than inserting thousands of troops into the country, the United States fought the war using a new type of military operation that relied on special forces, airpower, and Afghan allies.

Great seller. Book was packaged well, and as expected. Book seems interesting.

Really in-depth, with great details of the unit by unit movements during the invasion.

This is a stunning, comprehensive, and readable account of the war in Iraq in 2003.

To the book's credit, it is loaded with details without becoming overwhelmed by military jargon. It takes a long view: providing focus to both operational planning/management while being full of first-hand detailed accounts of grunts on the ground.

The snappy design includes something like 400 color illustrations (none of them huge, obviously) maps, charts, portraits, some sketches, and a timeline. 517 pp, List of Figures, Glossary, Index.

Here's some of the blurb from the back cover. "This historic book details the planning and direction provided by General Tommy Franks to the U.S. Special Operations Command Central and on down the line to the two Combined Joint Special Operations Task Forces (North and West), and a Naval task force -- and then, as in all campaigns, how the units and individual soldiers executed their specific missions with courage and skill. To ensure accuracy in their reporting, the authors received unparalleled access to classified documents and personal accounts from soldiers on the battlefield."

For a book that is published in 2013, one would hope there would be a little more analysis of the screw-ups leading up to the war and the execution of it, and what the next 10 years brought. It seems like this book was written in about 2004 and not much analysis. Very snappy layout, paper, pictures, etc. But it is a military book, a history to be studied supposedly by future military. But I thought it had a very narrow focus and took for granted the assumptions and BS that led us into the war. Including WMD, Chalabi, US/British "intelligence", etc. One can almost hear Rce, Cheney, and Powell. Certainly not going to learn too much valuable military history for future good use by swallowing all of this. And the tax-payers paid for the book. Oh, great.

That's for sure a realy interesting book for those who are interested in Special Operations Forces and/or Iraq war...But I'm little disappointed to see that this history book mention the capture of Saddam Hussein on december 2004, considering the operation Red Dawn was launched one year before, in 2003...We can read it on page 15 : "Saddam was ultimately captured by U.S. forces on 13 december 2004 and imprisoned"...I first though it was a single mistake, but it isn't because the same mistake is repeated on page 17 and also in the timeline shown in the lower part of EACH page...

Ok, it's only a date and it's not so important...But I can't agree considering this is an official history book, wrote and published by the USASOC History office and moreover this is THE event that no one will forget since the world famous "We got him"...

In a so-called "history book", this kind of mistake is realy important and ask the question "what's the real historical value of this book ?"... And if it exists a mistake for this major event, which credit can we give to minor events referenced in this book ?

Out of this consideration, it's an excellent book and I've no regret having purchased it...
