Publisher's Summary

Raiding Forces is undergoing a major reorganization to be better able to carry out small scale raids against Rommel’s only hard topped road, the Via Balbia. It runs along the coast from Tripoli to Tobruk. The plan is for Raiding Forces to be able to strike from the desert out of the Great Sand Sea with gun jeeps and from the Mediterranean using amphibious DUKW’s. 

While this is taking place, the unit is alerted for the invasion of Persia. US Army personnel who have resigned from the army in order to volunteer for the Middle East contingent of the American Volunteer Group (AVG) arrive and are integrated into the unit.

Fun story

Mr Ward has an interesting way to describe the importance of attacking Lines of Communications. I would give 5 stats across the board but his drum rolls get under my skin. I'm looking forward to the next book.

Private Army is about special forces in ww2.

It uses info from many sources to build a great story about a fictional spec force team but is based on many historical occurrences. The Trojan war type myth for the twentieth century
