Entebbe,Mogadishu, Grenada, the siege on the Iranian Embassy: these are the flashpoints of history. Sporadic shots in an incessant hail of warfare that has been waged across the world since 1945.
At times of political high tension, it is secret armies like the SAS, Spetsnaz and Delta Force that form the cutting edge in today's international conflicts. These are the special forces that have won. and lost- the most spectIcular military operations since the last World War, and that are destined to be in the vanguard of the next.

Drawing on previously unpublished material, SECRET ARMIES is a terrifying yet thrilling account of irregular .warfare. from 1945...through to a future under the ominous shadow of the ultimate confrontation.
