Black ops : the rise of special forces in the C.I.A, the S.A.S, and Mossad by Tony Geraghty ( Book )
5 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
After eight challenging years in Afghanistan, the new U.S. strategy, aimed at winning hearts and minds rather than search-and-destroy, refocuses the conflict on Special Forces: unorthodox soldiers who work outside of traditional military forces to combine secret military operations with nation building. Tony Geraghty, an expert author in this field for almost thirty years, unveils the evolution of this refined style of war-making from its roots in anti-guerrilla warfare in Ireland and Palestine, by way of the creation of the CIA, the SAS, the Green Berets, America's Office of Strategic Services (OSS), and many others. Israel's Special Forces, including Mossad, are an organic part of the same coherent history, and their story is narrated here for the first time. This is more than a tale of derring-do, it is a sweeping examination of Black Ops at a time when they represent the future of an open-ended global war against terrorism.--From publisher description
Soldiers of fortune : a history of the mercenary in modern warfare by Tony Geraghty ( Book )
3 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: The freelance solider, or mercenary, whether fighting for money or reputation or an adopted cause, has always been a fascinating and controversial phenomenon. Now, as a result of the situations in Iraq and Afghanistan, he has become not simply a mercenary but a vital part of modern and privatized warfare. For some, he is a heroic figure, doing the work governments are too squeamish to admit to; for others, he is a bloodthirsty killer. In Tony Geraghty's starling history, he sheds new light on their activities, which has until now been shrouded in secrecy. Many of the soldiers have spoken to the author about their experiences for the first time, revealing details of operations that have never before been reported in the media

The Irish War : the hidden conflict between the IRA and British Intelligence by Tony Geraghty ( Book )
5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the late 1960s, as the civil unrest in Northern Ireland turned from agitation and street violence to practiced urban warfare, the British government responded with increasingly sophisticated countermeasures, including military force. Both sides played down their intentions: the IRA took cover in democratic protests and the British claimed to be successfully containing civil unrest. Yet behind the scenes both were developing the strategy and technology of a full-fledged war." "In The Irish War military veteran and historian Tony Geraghty reveals the sinister patterns of action and reaction in this domestic conflict. Drawing on public and covert sources, as well as interviews with members of British intelligence, the security forces, and the Irish Republican Army, he brings to light the disturbing inner workings of an organized terrorist group and its military opposition. Tracing the roots of the Northern Ireland Troubles from the greatly mythologized Battle of the Boyne in 1690, The Irish War shows how the battle expanded to embrace forms of surveillance, interrogation, chemical analysis, and electronic eavesdropping, all of which carried dangerous implications for the population at large."--BOOK JACKET
