4.0 von 5 Sternen "Dogs and Pony Show" aber trotzdem gut. 8. Februar 2004
Von Jason
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
"Dogs and Pony Show", so heißen die gestellten Bilder bei den wahren Mitgliedern von Spezialeinheiten. Und so ist leider auch das Bildmaterial, oder von anderen Medien, die wenigsten leider wahrscheinlich selber gemacht. Schade. Aber trotzdem sehr schön und mit Liebe zum Detail gemacht! Allerdings fehlerhafte Übersetzung ins Englische. Trotzdem super aktuell und sehr informativ, geht aber nicht in die Tiefe. Ich habe es gekauft und es nicht bereut, es gibt zur Zeit nichts besseres. Danke Eric!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Riddled with errors 20. Oktober 2003
Von J. Chang - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Well in addition to getting most of the operational details incorrect in this book many of the photos (of the US SOF at least) seem to be randomly attributed to different units operating on the line. His section on Delta Force and DEVGRU are so inaccurate it's like reading fiction. My personal fav is a picture of US Army Special Forces with a caption that says SAS. How do I know those guys aren't SAS? You can find the pcitures on the DOD website!
What's more, Micheletti has chosen not to block out the faces of the soldiers on most pages of this book. So whoever buys this book gets a good look at active duty men working in the field who can now be identified by their enemies and put in danger of retribution. This puts these men and their families in danger. Any operator will tell you this is just wrong.
Almost every image in this book can be found online at [...] and in most cases, with the faces obscured.
Do not support this book. Do not buy this book. It is a comedy of technical errors in addition to being a threat to the men who do this work for real.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not for the specialists 23. Dezember 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
A coffee-table book packed with pictures. If you are looking for highly specialized infos, give it a miss. If you want loads of pictures (including reconstructions) and some background infos, go for it.
The original text was obviously in French and the translation is not always 100% but it remains readable.
Good infos on non-US units and interesting pictures taken by the in-house "RAIDS" reporter, Yves Debay.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Poor translation and innacurate details 22. Dezember 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
1. The book appears to have been tranlated from French to English very poorly. I estimate 80% of the sentences have obvious grammatical errors and/or mispellings.
2. Many of the detailed facts specifically in the timeline section are innacurate.
3. I intended to use the book for research on Spec Ops role for an Afghanistan Campaign analysis. I didn't use anything from this book because it lacked factual credibility.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A slightly flawed, yet intersting book. 15. Juli 2006
Von Lee Bishop - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
First off, I have to point out the flaws:

1. The CIA "Jawbreaker" team that went into Afghanistan was mostly armed with AKs and Browning High-power pistols, NOT state-of-the-art M-4 and M-16 variants. They bought their gear and equipment mostly from REI, not a military clothing sale store. I found the segments and desrciptions of the CIA equipment to be laughable, and several books, such as "First In" discuss this.

2. The translations are lacking. That being said, they sure did a better job that I ever could!

3. The reconstructions were good, but you could clearly see that a lot of the equipment shown was just what they could get their hands on (early M-4s, M-249s used with M-16 mags that jam in real life, stuff like that), not what was really used. I found it odd that the news photos they used didn't even match them!

Okay, now that THIS is out of the way, all in all, it's still a darned good book. Sure, there are some errors, but when you're dealing with Special Ops, it shocks me they got as much right as they did, pure and simple.

Yes, it's mostly for the modelers, airsofter crowd or "gear collector" types. So what? The bottom line is that it's still a great book with a lot of info you just don't see anywhere else. And it's great that the units of our allied nations FINALLY got their due. I can't comment on the authenticity of these sections, but I know their efforts are rarely ever written about.

The next time you hear someone say, "Gee, we were in places OTHER than Iraq?" shove this book under their noses!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Tip Of Spear � SPEC OPS � Afghanistan 16. Oktober 2003
Von T.A.L. Dozer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Outstanding tribute to coalition SPEC OPS Forces fighting in the "STAN". This is the first time in history that Special Forces are responsible for winning a conventional war with a few hundred operators and in less then forty-nine days they put an end to the Taliban regime with the fall of Kandahar. Book covers that story in word and pictures. All major operations and high lights of selected missions are covered. Book details all the major and minor coalition SOF units from Australia (SAS), New Zealand (SAS), Turkey (Special Forces), Danish (Commando), Norwegian (Commando and Rangers), German (KSK), French (SSAG), and Canada (JTF-2), as well as American SOF. That is just some of the countries and units covered. The book does not forget anyone I can see, they have also sections on CIA commandos, Search and Rescue units, Psy-ops and civil affairs The book explains the unit function/organization and its participation in STAN. Now what makes this book better then other titles on Special Forces, well for one this title focus on Afghanistan and the units operating their giving this book much more focus, now I must also say this book is not meant to be an exhausted historical text but a detailed synopsis of the events in STAN. The books winning point are the illustrations and color photos, there are literally hundreds. Most are unpublished but I did notice a handful you can easy find online, but this in no way takes away from the book for the other photos make up for them few. Another interesting feature is the book has numerous reenactment photos of operators in full kit, displaying gear and weapons used by each unit. This would be ideal for collectors, gear-nuts, historians, air-softer and as already said reactors. The photos are generally studio shots of models wearing a particular countries kit and weapons, with multiple angles with text descriptions. I must say that these portions of the books photos are superb. The book has its flaws, some pictures are described wrong as well as some of the finer points of selected units but as a whole for what the book was intended for it did quite a good job and I highly recommend it to anyone one seeking information on the elite units that fought in STAN, and as a final not some of the units covered here I have never seen in print else were. This is by far one of Eric Micheletti best work to date.
