It is an interesting story. It definately isn't the book for you if you want to read about spec ops guys doing super secret missions, but if you want a quick and interesting read this is a fun book. It shows how a lot of things that are now considered to be standard training for most special operations units around the world came to be such as HALO, the fulton sky hook, swimming out of a torpedo tube and so on. My personal favorite is the stories about guys sitting in the bomb bay of fighter bombers and then getting dropped out at high speed.
