About this product
- DescriptionSpecial Operations Forces (SOF) have never been an integral element of Canada's military capability. Although units have existed periodically throughout the country's history, they have always been in the shadows. However, the terrorist attack in the United States on September 11, 2001, changed that. In the aftermath of 9/11, SOF became the force of choice. Casting Light on the Shadows consists of a series of essays on SOF-related issues written by individuals with specialized kwledge and expertise in the field. As well as providing a solid foundation for SOF theory, historical background, and evolution, the book also highlights ongoing developments in SOF. Colonel Bernd Horn is an experienced infantry officer and is currently the director of the Canadian Forces Leadership Institute. Dr. Horn is also an adjunct professor of history at the Royal Military College of Canada. Major Tony Balasevicius is an experienced infantry officer who is currently on staff in the Department of Applied Military Science at the Royal Military College of Canada.
