When America has a dangerous mission, the Delta Force often gets the call. During the War on Terror, intelligence revealed a chance to save prisoners held by ISIS. Delta Force responded, as they have for decades, with lightning-quick action. Inside, read how the dedicated and daring experts of this brave force pulled of one of the most successful raids of the 21st century. From deep in enemy territory, the Delta Force brought the people home. Sometimes a job is so tough, so dangerous, and so important that a singular group of people is needed to get it done. When that happens, the United States military calls upon members of the Special Forces. These elite, dedicated, and highly trained operators use their skills, talent, and courage to complete key missions and save lives. The tales of many of those historic missions are highly classified, but some can be told . . . in SPECIAL FORCES STORIES. Each title in SPECIAL FORCES STORIES includes color photos throughout, and back matter including an index and further reading lists for books and internet resources. Key Icons appear throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities, and expand their viewpoints through our content rich nonfiction books. Key Icons in this series are: Words to Understand shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are set in boldfaced color type in that chapter, so that readers are able to reference back to the definitions, building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content-rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Text-Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each title.

Research Projects are provided at the end of each title and give readers suggestions for projects that encourage deeper research and analysis. Educational Videos are offered in chapters through the use of a QR code, that, when scanned, takes the student to an online video showing a moment in history, a speech, or an instructional video. This gives the readers additional content to supplement the text. A Series Glossary of Key Terms is included in the backmatter containing terminology used throughout the series.
