NO ROOM FOR ERROR The Covert Operations of America's Special Tactics Units from Iran to Afghanistan

by | Read by Patrick Girard Lawlor

Contemporary Culture • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

The title of this work is somewhat misleading. Although it discusses the activities of the country's Special Operations Forces (SOF) from 1979 to the present, it focuses on the role of the Air Force's Combat Controllers. Colonel Carney, who helped create the Controllers (who are something akin to the Airborne's Pathfinders of WWII), gives us a well-written, engaging memoir of his service and that of his unit. His account of the failed Iranian hostage rescue is well worth listening to, as are his accounts of Grenada, Panama, and other actions through our present war on terror. Lawlor's reading is quite good. His tenor voice makes the story seem to be that of a man younger than the author. This is by no means negative, for Lawlor's delivery is fluid and clear. M.T.F.
