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. Task Force Black 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.

Task Force Dagger is the 2nd book in The Blades S.A.S Series: a fictional account of life as a S.A.S operator following Danny Archer's career across a number of historical S.A.S missions set within historical conflicts from 1998 to the present day. October 2001: In the aftermath of the 9/11 attack on the United States by Al-Qaeda, the Taliban regime controlling Afghanistan refuse a diplomatic ultimatum to hand over Osama bin Laden and his Al-Qaeda leadership to face trial. In response, the United States rapidly forms Task Force Dagger: an international coalition of Special Forces inserted into Afghanistan to support the rebel Afghan Northern Alliance warlord militias to retake power from the Taliban regime. Archer’s Patrol from S.A.S Seven Troop are inserted in a daring H.A.L.O raid to disable a fortified Taliban Anti-Air position to open the Panjshir Valley for the U.S Special Forces helicopter insertion, before joining their colleagues from the British S.B.S (Special Boat Service). Once in Afghanistan they undertake a series of missions to take strategic objectives and capture high-value Al Qaeda targets, culminating in the siege of bin Laden’s cave complex at Tora Bora: Operation Jawbreaker, where more than 2,000 international Special Forces operators supported the Afghan militias in an attempt to kill or capture Osama bin Laden. Task Force Dagger is a fictionalized story based on the historical campaign to retake Afghanistan from the Taliban and dismantle Al-Qaeda’s terrorist network — widely considered the most successful military operation of the Afghanistan conflict.
