In the classic 1957 Sci-Fi film The Monolith Monsters, a meteor hits the earth and explodes, scattering strange, rock-like fragments far and wide around its impact crater. Those fragments then become activated by contact with water and grow into gigantic towering megaliths which then topple over, only to begin growing again as long as water is present. So long as there is rain or an underground water supply, they continue to grow, fall, shatter, and grow again, destroying everything in their path (and fusing human tissue into a stone-like substance).
I have a room full of military history books, and have been reading them since I was a kid; but I don’t think I have ever seen a book on Special Operations that was this current– and especially this well illustrated (though many faces are understandably blurred.)
Chock full of great stories well told, and shadow warfare lore, this book is appropriate for anyone old enough to appreciate it. Oliver North and Chuck Holton also co-authored American Heroes in the War Against Radical Islam, which is fine in its own right. But the particular focus of this book makes it uniquely compelling. A great gift.

Wouldn’t you love to hear your least favorite progressive talker make that their new year’s resolution?
For the first time since the glory days of Monday Night Football with Howard Cosell, Dandy Don Meredith and Frank Gifford, a prime time regularly scheduled NFL football game (not the Super Bowl) appeared as the week’s top-rated television program for the 15th week in a row.
NBC’s ratings for Sunday Night Football have been quite good since its debut, but they took an immediate double digit jump this year, not after something was added to the show, but after someone was dropped.
Namely, Keith Olbermann. Talk about addition by subtraction.
