Spec Operations William Mcrave

"In his book Spec Ops, the author identifies six principles that define a successful mission, including simplicity, speed and surprise. When his team of Navy Seals flew into Abbotabad in search of Osama bin Laden, they were armed with all six, but perhaps most important was purpose- a tactical art surely, with a larger meaning more difficult to define."
