Elite Warriors: Special Operations Forces From Around the World

For Immediate Release

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., USA – July 31, 2017 – East View Press, the publishing imprint of East View Information Services, announces the release of the book Elite Warriors: Special Operations Forces From Around the World. Presenting a collection of essays by leading military and security analysts, Elite Warriors offers a detailed assessment of the organization and capabilities of a selection of the world’s special operations forces.

Elite Warriors is the latest publication from the Centre for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies (CAST), a Moscow-based think tank focused on military and security issues. Co-edited by Ruslan Pukhov, director of CAST, and Christopher Marsh, president of the Special Operations Research Association, it includes data on countries such as China, Iran, Israel, Jordan, Poland, Russia, Turkey, and Ukraine.

The book provides readers with a comprehensive breakdown of the current composition, roles and chain of command of the various types of elite forces within each country. Also included are details concerning personnel recruitment and training, weapons and gear, brief histories and select combat records. Elite Warriors is an ideal reference for anyone interested in the unique role that these special forces play in their respective countries and throughout the world.

Elite Warriors is an extraordinarily important contribution to our knowledge of special operations forces around the world,” says Linda Robinson, an analyst at RAND and special operations specialist. “Ruslan Pukhov and his co-authors give us a vital, inside look at elite units from 14 countries – how these secretive forces are organized, trained and equipped. Researchers and policymakers will benefit from this path-breaking work on SOF and how they are used in today’s tumultuous world of terrorism and unconventional warfare.”

Elite Warriors is available in print and digital formats. Examination copies are available for qualified reviewers. Please visit www.eastviewpress.com/Books/EliteWarriors.aspx for more information or to place your order.
