Raids carried out by small units, special forces and counter-terrorist operatives are a military quandary. They can be astoundingly successful, defying the odds as a small number of soldiers operating in difficult environments are able to exact a massive tactical victory, sometimes capable of changing the course of a war.

Or the raiders can find themselves isolated, surrounded by a superior enemy force and with no chance of escape, their mission a colossal failure. Raid is the new series from Osprey Publishing, which looks at both sides of these engrossing stories. Its unique approach will give the reader a detailed analysis of each raid, describing the background, the initial strategy, how the action played out, and an assessment of its success.

Bringing each of these epic engagements to life, Raid uncovers some incredible tales of heroism and military skill, discussing what went right, what went wrong and revealing the men ­behind these bold actions.
