When American and British forces invaded Iraq in March 2003, select
teams of special forces and intelligence operatives got to work
looking for the WMD their governments had promised were there. They
quickly realized no such weapons existed. Instead they faced an
insurgency--a soaring spiral of extremism and violence that was
almost impossible to understand, let alone reverse.
Facing defeat, the Coalition waged a hidden war within a war.
Major-General Stan McChrystal devised a campaign fusing special
forces, aircraft, and the latest surveillance technology with the
aim of taking down the enemy faster than it could regenerate.
Guided by intelligence, British and American special forces
conducted a relentless onslaught, night after night targeting
al-Qaeda and other insurgent groups.
In "Task Force Black, " author Mark Urban reveals not only the
intensity of the secret fight that turned the tide in Baghdad but
the rivalries and personal battles that had to be overcome along
the way. Incisive, dramatic, exceptionally revealing, the war in
Iraq cannot be understood without this book.
