The patrol vehicles used by Special Operations Forces in Afghanistan and Iraq vary quite dramatically between the theatres as well as amongst the Coalition members, and have been developed and upgraded both in-theatre and out to meet the demands of the deployments in those regions. Covering all the major Coalition nations, but with a primary focus on the 'Big Three' - the United States, Great Britain and Australia - Leigh Neville continues his look at the elite forces deployed in Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom, with this analysis of their vehicles. Tracing the history of the vehicle types, from their historical precedents, through their designs to their operational developments, he discussed the advantages and disadvantages of the vehicles, along with their tactical employment. From the mine-protected vehicles used to counter the IED threat in Iraq, the use of Strykers as armoured raiding platforms by the US Rangers, to the civilian vehicles adapted for military service by both Coalition troops and Private Military Contractors in the regions, this book uses rare in-theatre photographs and colour artwork to show the variety and inventiveness of the patrol vehicles being used in combat today....
