In 2001 the Canadian government sent elements of the elite Joint Task Force 2 counter-terrorist unit to Afghanistan to assist the United States in its global war on terror as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. Withdrawn a year later, JTF 2 returned to Afghanistan in 2005 to once again assist the Americans with the desperate struggle in the shadows to capture or kill Taliban leaders, facilitators, and bomb makers.
No Ordinary Men peels back the cloak of secrecy and reveals four untold special operations that JTF 2 operators conducted in 2005–06 in which their courage, tenacity, and impressive capabilities meant the difference between life and death. The book takes the reader to the Taliban sanctuaries deep in the Afghan hinterlands and provides a glimpse of Canada’s remarkable legacy in special operations.
