9780007183296: Jane's - Special Forces Recognition Guide (Jane's Recognition Guide)

Comprehensive guide to the world’s special forces and their kit.

Special forces can be defined as ‘a military unit trained for unconventional operations and especially counter-insurgency’.

The often covert and unique nature of these unit’s duties require specially manufactured weaponry, transport and reconnaissance hardware, and this guide provides a compact and authoritative guide to kit used by the elite forces of the world.

Up-to-the-minute photography and information comes from the leaders in the field of defence and security information, Jane’s Information Group. The author is retired Lt. Colonel Southby-Tailyour who served with the Royal Marines and is the established editor of Jane’s Amphibious and Special Forces.

This is the authority on Special Forces, ideal for any level of military enthusiast. So if you want to know about Special Forces weapons or transport or even their elite use of surveillance equipment including human presence sensors then this is the kit you need!
