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 448 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

No Hero by Kevin Maurer( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The companion volume to the multimillion-copy classic No Easy Day by former Navy SEAL Mark Owen reveals the evolution of a SEAL Team Six operator Mark Owen's instant #1 New York Times bestseller, No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission that Killed Osama bin Laden, focused on the high-profile targets and headline-grabbing chapters of the author's thirteen years as a Navy SEAL. His follow-up, No Hero, offers a rare counterpoint: an intimate account of Owen's most personally meaningful missions, missions that never made headlines, including the moments in which he learned the most about himself and his teammates in both success and failure. "I want No Hero to offer something most books on war don't: the intimate side of it, the personal struggles and hardships and what I learned from them," says Owen. "The stories in No Hero are a testament to my teammates and to all the other active and former SEALs who have dedicated their lives to freedom. In our community, we are constantly taught to mentor the younger generation and to pass the lessons and values we've learned on to others so that they can do the same for the guys coming up after them. This is what I hope I have done for readers of No Hero ." Every bit as action-packed as No Easy Day, and featuring stories from the training ground to the battlefield, No Hero offers readers a never-before-seen close-up view of the experiences and values that make Mark Owen and the SEALs he served with capable of executing the missions we read about in the headlines
Hunter killer : inside the lethal world of drone warfare by T. Mark McCurley( Book )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 93 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
