No way out : a story of valor in the mountains of Afghanistan by Mitch Weiss( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It seemed like an impossible mission right from the start. A Special Forces team in Afghanistan planned to land in an enemy-held valley and scale a steep mountain to surprise and capture a terrorist leader. But before they found the target, the target found them. The elite soldiers fought for hours, huddled on a small rock ledge as rocket-propelled grenades and heavy machine gun fire rained down on them. They tended to their wounded and kept fighting to stay alive. When the battle finally ended, ten soldiers had earned Silver Stars--the most awarded to any unit in one battle since Vietnam. Based on dozens of interviews with those who were there, this is a compelling narrative of an epic battle that also serves as a cautionary tale: Be careful what you ask a soldier to do, because they will die trying to accomplish their mission.--From publisher description

For the first time anywhere, the first-person account of the planning and execution of the Bin Laden raid from a Navy Seal who confronted the terrorist mastermind and witnessed his final moments. From the streets of Iraq to the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips in the Indian Ocean, and from the mountaintops of Afghanistan to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden's compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group - commonly known as SEAL Team Six - has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines. No Easy Day puts readers alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the twenty-four-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives. The blow-by-blow narrative of the assault, beginning with the helicopter crash that could have ended Owen's life straight through to the radio call confirming Bin Laden's death, is an essential piece of modern history. In No Easy Day, Owen also takes readers onto the field of battle in America's ongoing War on Terror and details the selection and training process for one of the most elite units in the military. Owen's story draws on his youth in Alaska and describes the SEALs' quest to challenge themselves at the highest levels of physical and mental endurance. With boots-on-the-ground detail, Owen describes numerous previously unreported missions that illustrate the life and work of a SEAL and the evolution of the team after the events of September 11. In telling the true story of the SEALs whose talents, skills, experiences, and exceptional sacrifices led to one of the greatest victories in the War on Terror, Mark Owen honors the men who risk everything for their country

Hunter killer : inside the lethal world of drone warfare by T. Mark McCurley( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Remotely piloted aircraft (RPA), commonly referred to by the media as drones, are a mysterious and headline-making tool in the military's counterterrorism arsenal. Previously, their story has been pieced together by technology reporters, major newspapers, and on-the-ground accounts from the Middle East, but it has never been fully told by an insider...In Hunter Killer, Air Force Lt. Col. T. Mark McCurley provides an unprecedented look at the aviators and aircraft that forever changed modern warfare. This is the first account by an RPA pilot, told from his unique-in-history vantage point supporting and executing Tier One counterterrorism missions. Only a handful of people know what it's like to hunt terrorists from the sky, watching through the electronic eye of aircraft that can stay aloft for a day at a time, waiting to deploy their cutting-edge technology to neutralize threats to America's national security...Hunter Killer is the counterpoint to the stories from the battlefront told in books like No Easy Day and American Sniper. While special operators such as SEALs and Delta Force have received a lot of attention in recent years, no book has ever told the story of the unmanned air war. Until now
