I wanna be an Airborne Ranger, I'm gonna read about a life of danger. Sound off…
If you haven't noticed, I am a woman. Why is that important to note? Because I will never be in any kind of Special Forces unit. The closest I can get is reading about them. I think I might not be alone in wondering if my instincts are on-level with these elite warriors.
Can You Survive in the Special Forces is divided into three missions, and for each you are in charge of a Special Forces team, a Ranger team or a Navy SEAL team. If you don't know what any of these teams are, don't worry. The book explains what each specialty does and the best way to go about your mission. This book is not for the faint of heart. There are options where you will fail your mission, get team members killed and die yourself.
Could I survive in the Special Forces? The answer is: "kind of." I would do okay: I'd make a terrible Ranger, but an incredible SEAL. I had an extraordinary time making judgments for these Special Operation units. Please visit and tell me if you faired any better!
I work in Youth Services, and like to read all kinds of books, although nonfiction is not my favorite. I spend a good portion of my time rooting for the Reds with my basset hound sleeping in my lap. I have been known to ride my scooter, watch Tim Burton movies and sing silly songs.
