A Good Read on a New Spec Op Unit

Pugliese pulls together a pretty good read on a unit that is so new, there is almost nothing known about it. Canada's top special operations unit appears to be more active than the country knows, and the author appears to have some unique insight to their missions. If you are interested in Special Forces, Delta, SEALs, SAS, GSG-9, GIGN and the like, this book will offer you an interesting perspective on Canada's counter-terrorism unit.

a must read for all canadians

The amount of information the author gathered about jtf2 is very impressive, especially considering 99 percent of the canadian public has never hered of that unit. I learned a fare amount about jtf2 when I served in the Royal Canadian Regiment, but not nearly to the extent of this book, at the same time I'm sure there's a few things that this book did not uncover. I would recommend this book to all canadian citizins and anyone with an interest in special forces units.

A Piece Of The Puzzle

Trying to find information on an Elite group such as this is exhausting to say the least. With this group of individuals being a relatively classified, closely guarded bunch by their government, you will find yourself reading and researching many other forms of literature that may touch upon the JTF2 and their predecessors. This is where the real struggle of fact finding begins. Many things are conflicting like the age of this elite group, training facilities and the pre-existence of the group. The author does a wonderful job giving the reader leads for researching. Good Luck ** This IS an exceptional group as pointed out by another reader, Dave from Falls Church.

insightful

Wow, facinating book. A real eyeopener. A must read even if you're not a military buff. Well researched and easy to read.

Great look at Canada's top counter terrorist team

This is an excellent read on Joint Task Force 2, Canada's version of Delta Force and the SAS. Lots of details on the history and missions of the team (Bosnia, Haiti, Nepal, Kosovo, Central Africa, Rwanda), info on weapons, aircraft etc. There is also a wide range of photos showing JTF2 guys doing their thing. I appreciated the extensive list of sources at the back of the book where the author lists that his information comes from. Most, if not all, are from official Canadian Forces documents and interviews (JTF2's unit history,etc) so it boasts the credibility and accuracy of the book. The one drawback, I found was that some of the photos are grainy, being taken from the official JTF2 training video but I can easily overlook that when compared with all the information that is presented.
