Book Report, Part 1: “The Unit” the DoD’s most secretive special missions unit

Today, we’re talking about a groundbreaking new book, “The Unit” by Adam Gamal and Kelly Kennedy. It delivers a look inside the military’s most secretive special missions unit, which is so covert that even its name is classified.

Our book reviewer is National Security reporter Jack Murphy who served as an Army Ranger, Sniper, and Special Forces operator within Joint Special Operations Command.

He describes some stories inside the book, and shares personal anecdotes about the rare occasion when he encountered this covert team in the field.

We are currently working our back channel communications to land interviews with authors Adam Gamal and Kelly Kennedy … but the book is so damn intriguing, we couldn’t wait to discuss it!
