Currently reading Tom Clancy's "Rainbow Six", looks like a pretty good book so far. Just wondering for when I finish it, any other good books that you lot could recommend about Special Operations units? Fictional or non, I don't have a predisposition atm.

About the only vaguelly similar stuff that I have read is some of the Bourne books, many, many years ago now.

Spec Ops? People gallivanting around jungles killing teh ENEMYS OF FREEDOM?

Er, well, here in Sweden we have the Hamilton series of books by Jan Guillou, very variable-quality tho.

Clancy's "Clear and Present Danger" was alright. Some Spec Ops running around in Central America "doing things" to protect freedom. Of course, you've got to put up with his everpresent Intelligence Analyst being in the book. Clancy needs to interject himself into his world in so many of his books...
