A top-secret US Army Special Operations unit has been running covert missions all over the world, from leading death squads to the hideout of drug baron Pablo Escobar to capturing Saddam Hussein and, in one of the greatest special operations missions of all time, helping to track down al-Qa'eda leader Osama bin Laden. "The Activity," as it became known to insiders, has achieved near-mythical status, even among the world's Special Operations elite.

Armored cars, burner phones, top-notch weaponry, and top-secret missions - this is the life of today's private military contractor. Like author Simon Chase, many PMCs were once the world's top military operatives, and since retiring from outfits like US Navy SEAL TEAM Six and the UK's Special Boat Service, they have devoted their lives to executing missions too sensitive for the government to acknowledge. Chase reveals here for the first time the operations too hazardous and politically volatile to be officially sanctioned by his employers.

amazing book, can't stop going back. it's an amazing adventure that will take you across the world, telling the story of trials and tribulations not only of a soldier. but the human psyche itself. 10/10. narrator was one of the best on audible imo.

Rest in peace Simon. you were a true hero.

Simon died in a suicide bombing in a cafe in Afghanistan shortly after the book was written. his body was found on top of a woman. as he was attempting to save her by shielding her body from the blast.

this was a very good "Story". take it as a story and don't read it as fact, and you will go on a rollercoaster of emotions through this action packed story.
