âA must read for anyone who wants to understand the new American way of war.âÂ Â âÂ General Michael V. Hayden, former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency
A former special operations member takes us inside Americaâs covert drone war in this headline-making, never-before-told account for fans of Zero Dark Thirty and Lone Survivor, told by a Pulitzer Prize-winning Wall Street Journal writer and filled with eye-opening and sure to be controversial details.
For nearly a decade Brett Velicovich was at the center of Americaâs new warfare: using unmanned aerial vehiclesâdronesâto take down the worldâs deadliest terrorists across the globe. One of an elite handful in the entire military with the authority to select targets and issue death orders, he worked in concert with the full human and technological network of American intelligenceâassets, analysts, spies, informantsâand the militaryâs elite operatives, to stalk, capture, and eliminate high value targets in al-Qaeda and ISIS.
In this remarkable book, co-written with journalist Christopher S. Stewart, Velicovich offers unprecedented perspective on the remarkably complex nature of drone operations and the rigorous and wrenching decisions behind them. In intimate gripping detail, he shares insider, action-packed stories of the most coordinated, advanced, and secret missions that neutralized terrorists, preserved the lives of US and international warriors across the globe, and saved countless innocents in the hottest conflict zones today.
Drone Warrior also chronicles the US militaryâs evolution in the past decade and the technology driving it. Velicovich considers the future it foretells, and speaks candidly on the physical and psychological toll it exacts, including the impact on his own life. He reminds us that while these machines can kill, they can also be used productively to improve and preserve life, including protecting endangered species, work he is engaged in today.
Joining warfare classics such as American Sniper, Lone Survivor, and No Easy Day, Drone Warrior is the definitive account of our nationâs capacity and capability for war in the modern age.
