2 Spec Ops

Author : William H. Mcraven
Genre :  Military  Books  History 
Price :  $13.99
Release Date :  1996-06-01
Description :  Vice Adm. William H. McRaven helped to devise the strategy for how to bring down Osama bin Laden, and commanded the courageous U.S. military unit that carried it out on May 1, 2011, ending one of the greatest manhunts in history. In <i>Spec Ops, </i>a well-organized and deeply researched study, McRaven analyzes eight classic special operations. Six are from WWII: the German commando raid on the Belgian fort Eben Emael (1940); the Italian torpedo attack on the Alexandria harbor (1941); the British commando raid on Nazaire, France (1942); the German glider rescue of Benito Mussolini (1943); the British midget-submarine attack on the Tirpitz (1943); and the U.S. Ranger rescue mission at the Cabanatuan POW camp in the Philippines (1945). The two post-WWII examples are the U.S. Army raid on the Son Tay POW camp in North Vietnam (1970) and the Israeli rescue of the skyjacked hostages in Entebbe, Uganda (1976). McRaven—who commands a U.S. Navy SEAL team—pinpoints six essential principles of “spec ops” success: simplicity, security, repetition, surprise, speed and purpose. For each of the case studies, he provides political and military context, a meticulous reconstruction of the mission itself and an analysis of the operation in relation to his six principles. McRaven deems the Son Tay raid “the best modern example of a successful spec op [which] should be considered textbook material for future missions.” His own book is an instructive textbook that will be closely studied by students of the military arts.

3 The Chosen Few

Author : Gregg Zoroya & William H. Mcraven
Genre :  Military  Books  History  United States 
Price :  $9.99
Release Date :  2017-02-14
Description :  <b>The never-before-told story of one of the most decorated units in the war in Afghanistan and its fifteen-month ordeal that culminated in the 2008 Battle of Wanat, the war's deadliest</b><br /><br />A single company of US paratroopers--calling themselves the "Chosen Few"--arrived in eastern Afghanistan in late 2007 hoping to win the hearts and minds of the remote mountain people and extend the Afghan government's reach into this wilderness. Instead, they spent the next fifteen months in a desperate struggle, living under almost continuous attack, forced into a slow and grinding withdrawal, and always outnumbered by Taliban fighters descending on them from all sides.<br /><br />Month after month, rocket-propelled grenades, rockets, and machine-gun fire poured down on the isolated and exposed paratroopers as America's focus and military resources shifted to Iraq. Just weeks before the paratroopers were to go home, they faced their last--and toughest--fight. Near the village of Wanat in Nuristan province, an estimated three hundred enemy fighters surrounded about fifty of the Chosen Few and others defending a partially finished combat base. Nine died and more than two dozen were wounded that day in July 2008, making it arguably the bloodiest battle of the war in Afghanistan.<br /><br />The Chosen Few would return home tempered by war. Two among them would receive the Medal of Honor. All of them would be forever changed.

Description :  <b><i>«Se la mattina vi fate il letto, avrete portato a termine il primo compito della giornata. Questo vi darà una sensazione di orgoglio e vi incoraggerà a concluderne un altro, e poi un altro ancora. Farsi il letto, inoltre, rimarca la consapevolezza che nella vita le piccole cose contano. Se non sapete fare bene le piccole cose, non ne farete mai di grandi».</i></b><br /><br /> Non è un'esperta di riordino o una madre esasperata a dettare questa semplice regola, ma un ammiraglio a quattro stelle della Marina americana. Nel suo discorso tenuto ai laureandi dell'università del Texas alla cerimonia di consegna dei diplomi, William McRaven ha condiviso i dieci principi che ha imparato durante l'addestramento da Navy seal e che lo hanno aiutato a superare le sfide non solo nella sua carriera, ma lungo tutta la sua vita. Perché non è necessario essere un Navy seal per trovarsi in situazioni difficili, dover prendere decisioni complicate o affrontare compiti apparentemente insormontabili. Chiunque, ha detto, può usare queste semplici regole per migliorare se stesso, e il mondo. <br /> Quel discorso, che ha avuto oltre cento milioni di visualizzazioni in rete, è il punto di partenza di <i>Fatti il letto</i>, un bestseller diventato in breve un piccolo classico, ai vertici delle classifiche per mesi e in corso di pubblicazione in 24 lingue. Intrise di empatia e coraggio, queste pagine hanno il contagioso potere di ispirare il lettore a dare il meglio di sé e ottenere il massimo dalla propria vita.

Description :  William H. McRaven, penzionovaný admirál námořnictva Spojených států, má za sebou velmi úspěšnou službu v ozbrojených silách USA. Třicet sedm let byl příslušníkem zvláštních jednotek SEAL, kde velel na všech úrovních.

V této knize předkládá čtenářům deset pravidel, které se naučil při výcviku jednotek SEAL – výcviku, který patří k těm nejtěžším na světě. Obnáší půlnoční plavání v chladných vodách u San Diega, překážkové dráhy, nekonečné posilování a dlouhé dny bez spánku. Je to něco podobného, jako kdybyste vzali všechny výzvy, jímž musí člověk čelit za celý život, a koncentrovali je do šesti měsíců.
