It is a brilliant book that fills some important gaps about both the Cold War and aspects of the Iran Hostage Crisis.

Essential reading for those interested in US Army Special Forces and SOF history.

At 0.99c itís a steal.

I was in B/4/6 INF, McNair Barracks during the early 70's and only heard rumors about "those guys" at Andrews Barracks. I just ordered the book.
