With their work in Afghanistan and other parts of the globe so much in the news, Clancy's SHADOW WARRIORS gives a much needed perspective on the Special Operations Forces (SOF) of the U.S. military. The author uses the career of one officer General Carl Stiner (Ret.) to illustrate the history of U.S. SOF in general and the Green Berets in particular. In addition, the role of other SOF, such as the Navy SEALs and Army Rangers. in other recent conflicts are highlighted. There is also a postscript with Clancy's view of the present war with militant Islam. George DiCenzo does a fine job in reading this abridgment. His deep voice is clear and has a confident air of authority. His pace is deliberate, almost plodding, but never monotonous. When reading quotes from Stiner, who is from Tennessee, the narrator affects a Southern accent that quite suffices for this work. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 02]
