In The Greatest Stories Never Told: Special Ops, attorney and author Larry Yadon has written some of the greatest tales about special forces and operations - not twice- or thrice-told tales, but the ones you haven't heard before. It is an unforgettable collection, and includes stories of legendary operations from the late 18th century, when special forces emerged, up through present-day Afghanistan and Iraq.
The Greatest Stories Never Told: Snipers is an unforgettable collection of heart-stopping stories of well-known contemporary American snipers but focuses primarily upon other practitioners of the silent art who few contemporary readers in this genre have encountered before. They begin in south central France, at the dawn of the Thirteenth Century, and end in our present era of modern warfare. They include stories from the Civil War, the Great War, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq, and more.
The Greatest Navy SEAL Stories Ever Told is the first book to place side by side extraordinary stories of SEALs who put their lives on the line, and then go out and do it again the next day. They illustrate the SEAL maxim, The person who will not be defeated cannot be defeated. SEALs in action - men of courage and ingenuity, from the rice paddies and hills of Vietnam to the plains and mountains of Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan - appear in these pages. These stories cover the most significant overt and covert operations conducted since the U.S. Navy established Sea Land and Air Teams (SEALs) established in January 1962. The one common denominator in these chapters is the courage and ingenuity of those who proudly call themselves Navy SEALs. Sometimes SEALs and other participants in these stories recall differing versions of the same events, as recounted here for the reader to make his own judgments. So far as I know, no previously classified or sensitive information is revealed in these pages.
This rollicking history covers oil and mining frauds, town-site frauds, land swindles, and railroad rackets of the Old West era, many of which occurred in Nevada, Arizona, and California. It even includes a swindler's dictionary, defining such insider terms as ace, banco, country send, and wipe.
