The story of any military operation revolves not just around strategies and equipment, but around people. Now for the first time, readers will get an intimate look at the people behind CAS--Close Air Support. Their work is both delicate and deadly, their actions rooted in months of planning and executed with split-second timing. Acting as a bridge between special ops ground troops and lethal air power, CAS demands a skill set unparalleled even among the most elite military forces. But just as important is the mindset, dedication, and daring of a very special brand of Airman. They include: - Advance teams that create airfields and landing strips--from nothing. - The combat controllers that coordinated airstrikes and support during the hunt for Osama bin Laden in Tora Bora. - Special tactics teams who work closely with Joint Special Operations Task Forces. Military enthusiasts, history buffs, and readers inspired by stories of exceptional bravery and patriotism will all be drawn to the heroes of "Deadly Blue," the Air Force Special Operations Command that orchestrates and executes these critical missions.
