The story of any military operation revolves not just around strategies and equipment, but people. Having authored over a dozen military deep dives, author Fred Pushies draws on his intimate knowledge of US Special Ops to provide readers a unique look at the people behind CAS--Close Air Support--missions. The work of these Air Force Special Operations Command Air Commandos 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 missions demand a skill set unparalleled even among the most elite military forces. In Deadly Blue, you’ll learn about the mindset, dedication, and daring of the very special brand of airmen who carry out these tasks, including their ability to create airfields and landing strips from nothing. You’ll also learn about the combat controllers who coordinated airstrikes and support during the hunt for Osama bin Laden in Tora Bora and gain insights into the special tactics teams that work closely with Joint Special Operations Task Forces. Whatever your knowledge of the military, this collection of battle stories will draw you into deep awe and admiration for a most unique band of heroes. Read Less
