Special Ops - School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

Focusing on lesser-known U.S. military units, this series is fascinating and informative. A riveting introductory narrative starts each volume and puts readers right into the action, then whisks them through each special force’s history and purpose. The sharp photos, several of which show these brave individuals in action, further illustrate the elite nature of these military forces. Readers will be hard-pressed to put these down.
