A 5 minute read. Jan. 23 2012
By Edgardo Gierbolini - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was dissapointing. As I former member of Marine Force Recon I was expecting a detailed accounting of our standards, history, training, and past missions. Instead this book covers all those areas in about three pages. It is heavy into pictures and command structure and comparisons in structure with other special forces type groups. The crux of really interesting information could have been released as a pamphlet. If you don't like to read and just like to look at some cool pictures, this book is for you. If you know anything at all about Marine Recon you will not learn anything new here. This is one of those books you eventually find in a big pile for 75 cents along with other "picture books" with no real substance.

MARSOC book is recruit propaganda for teens. April 18 2012
By R. Gilchrist - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is more of a overview of what MARSOC does and can do.

I was actually looking for something more like a detailed history of Marine SO. This was not. I will not recommend this for anyone looking for the history of such operations.

"SUPER FORCE RECON"? May 21 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Interesting book, very good information, not for casual reading
but for anyone who is interested in the MARINE CORPS as it
evolves into the new(?) small(?) conflict warfare role, it shows the
weapons and other gear in use.
Being a proud Marine who served years ago and carried a BAR, I found
it informative and interesting.
A very good reference book.

Outstanding up-to-date scoop on MARSOC equipment with good history of MARSOC predecessors Dec 21 2012
By Kyle Roberts - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a former Marine and current US History teacher (both High School and College) this is a good "nuts-and-bolts" book to get an overview of the equipment and some of the selection and training of our newest generation of supreme warriors. There is a very good "30,000 foot level" synopsis of how MARSOC came about as new SPECOP units were formed and strategically where the USMC now fits in the SPECOP community. The history section on previous generations of Marines like Lieutenant Presley O'Bannon and USMC special forces types as seen in Colonel "Red Mike" Edson give a superior picture of the pride generated by United States Marines. Respectfully submitted, K L Roberts

Since this was a gift, I did not read the book myself. My father told me that he enjoyed it very much.
