    Default Element of Surprise

    It was the most elegantly executed special-operations raid to date in modern American warfare. High risk. The chances of returning were 50 percent. Of the six helicopters involved, one would crash-land inside the targetís high-walled compound.

    There's a couple of books covering the raid, IMHO, the best one is simply title "The Raid".
