A short and sweet account of what exactly JSOC is, how they operate (in great detail), and how the organization fits into the overall military operational structure. The authors have done an excellent job of sticking to facts and giving credit where it's due to the people who have built JSOC into an agile and responsive fighting and intelligence-gathering force. I respect authors who write with candor on a sensitive issue such as this, but retain the decency and maturity to consider operational security issues, as most of the content here is extremely current.

Highly recommended to anyone interested in COIN, intelligence strategy, or military history.
