No easy task : fighting in Afghanistan by Bernd Horn( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Afghanistan has long been considered the graveyard of empires. Throughout their history, Afghans have endured the ravages of foreign invaders, from marauding hordes and imperial armies to global superpowers, while demonstrating a fierce independence and strong resistance to outside occupiers. Those who have ventured into Afghanistan with notions of controlling its people have soon discovered that fighting in that rugged, hostile land is no easy task. Afghans have proven to be tenacious and unrelenting foes. No Easy Task examines this legacy of conflict, particularly from a Canadian perspective. What emerges is the difficulty faced by foreign forces attempting to impose their will over Afghans who, for their part, have consistently adapted tactics and strategies to stymie and defeat those they perceive as invaders and interlopers. It is within this complexity and challenge that the difficult counter-insurgency must be fought."--

Special operations forces : a national capability( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In order to expand the dialogue of Canadian Special Operations Forces and their unique range of capabilities with their partners within the defence community, the media and the Canadian public, a symposium was held at the Royal Military College of Canada in 2010. This volume represents an amalgam of the presentations and ideas that were put forward by scholars and military practitioners in order to both educate, as well as create, discourse on the subject of SOF. Beginning with the Canadian SOF legacy and how it has evolved to meet the nation's needs, it moves on to look at crucial components of force develpment and ways in which SOF help to shape the area of operations. It explores important issues such as the role of SOF as an economy of effort/economy of force option in the contemporary operating environment as well as the budding media-SOF relationship
