Special Ops and the Future of American Warfare

Linda Robinson describes how special operations forces have become the go-to force for U.S. military endeavors worldwide. She followed the evolution of special ops in Afghanistan, their longest deployment since Vietnam, and looks at the challenges they face and the constant danger in which they operate. Her book  One Hundred Victories: Special Ops and the Future of American Warfare explores what a tiny band of warriors can do, and cannot do, out on the wild frontiers of the next-generation wars.
