The rapid expansion of fast reaction forces worldwide has resulted in the massive development of covert and counter-insurgency aviation operations.

From the start of such activities in WWII through Borneo to Northern Ireland, the Gulf and Eastern Europe, coverage includes special forces throughout the world including the SAS, SBS, Navy Seals and Europe's élite units.

This book describes paramilitary and paramedic agencies including fire-fighters, mountain rescue and medical support teams and drug-busting operations in the Caribbean. It also includes covert specialist and often highly secret aeroplanes and helicopters such as the Bell/Boeing V22 Osprey, Boeing/Sikorsky RAH-66 Comanche and the Westland/Agusta EH101 Merlin.
