Raid

RAID

Raids carried out by small units, special forces and counter-terrorist groups can be astoundingly successful, defying the odds and all logic as a small number of soldiers operating in difficult environments are able to exact massive tactical victories, which can change the course of a war. Or the raiders can find themselves isolated, surrounded by a superior enemy force and, with little chance of escape, facing complete failure.
Raid, the new series from Osprey Publishing, looks at both sides of these engrossing stories. Its unique approach will give the reader a detailed study of each raid, describing the background and history behind each engagement, assessing the initial assault strategy, evaluating how the raid was implemented and providing an analysis of its achievements.
Complete with stunning artwork, maps, detailed bird’s eye views and dozens of photographs, the Raid series brings each of these epic engagements to life, revealing some incredible tales of heroism and military skill, discussing what went right and what went wrong, and revealing the men behind these bold actions.
