Spycraft and Special Operations on the Front Lines of Afghanistan
The explosive memoir that the American government tried to ban
Lieutenant Colonel Anthony Shaffer was part of a secret detachment of the US Army known as the 'Jedi Knights'. In Operation Dark Heart, he reveals for the first time, and in amazing detail, the otherwise secret world of black operations and clandestine intelligence plots conducted by the Western allies in an alien terrain against often undefinable enemies.
This book is a gripping and compulsive insight into the espionage world and into a complex labyrinth of agencies that do not like to share secrets. It is also the true and moving story of a twenty-first-century warrior.
Please note that sensitive information in this book has been redacted in accordance with the requests of US intelligence agencies.
