Les Forces d'operations speciales (SOF) n'ont jamais fait partie integrante des capacites militaires du Canada. des unites speciales ont certes existe a certaines periodes de notre histoire, mais elles ont toujours ceuvre dans l'ombre, a la limite de la reconnaissance. Elles ont presque toujours ete marginalisees. Cependant, la tragique attaque lancee par des terroristes sur les tours jumelles du World Trade Center a New York, le 11 septembre 2001, a considerablement modifie leur image. Les SOF sont devenues depuis des forces de premier plan. Les essais qui forment cet ouvrage concernant les SOF ont ete rediges par des experts en la matiere. Pris collectivement, ils constituent un recueil exhaustif d'informations et de connaissances sur les SOF canadiennes et sur des questions et sujets qui s'y rapportent. En somme, l'ouvrage permet au lecteur d'acquerir une solide base sur la theorie, le contexte historique et l'evolution des SOF, y compris les evenements qui favorisent leur expansion. Le colonel Bernd Horn est le directeur de l'Institut de leadership des Forces canadiennes (ILFC).

Il a auparavant ete commandant du 1er Bataillon, RCR, et du 3e Commando, Regiment aeroporte du Canada.
