The warrior series examines specific units and armies of a particular nation. In this installment the all-white and world renowned South African unit who was one of the most innovative and successful anti-terrorist units in the modern world.
For the Warrior series, the chapters are organized as follows:

The book is illustrated with photographs in black and white and color, several descriptive paintings and maps of the individual areas that are listed above. I really enjoyed the knowledge and hearing about the various backgrounds that this elite unit came from. A lot of the Helicopter tactics they employed were extremely informative.
My thanks to IPMS, and Osprey Publishing for giving me the opportunity to review this book. I love learning and this book provided me insight to a unit I never even heard of until the opportunity to review this book.
