    guerrilla warfare, 
    unconventional warfare (UW), 
    foreign internal defence (FID), 
    direct action (DA) 
    counter-terrorism (CT)actions.
  • 6. Special Forces history
    Special forces have played an important role throughout the history of warfare whenever the aim has been to achieve disruption by "hit and run" and sabotage, rather than more traditional conventional army combat using large formations of troops and motorized armour groups.
    Other significant roles lay in reconnaissance, providing essential intelligence from close to or among the enemy, and increasingly in combating terrorists, their infrastructure and activities.
  • 7. The need for special forces team to go behind enemy lines to create havoc and brought terror to the enemy. Psychologically good for the war morale.
    US war of independence (1775–1783), world war II –Doolittle Raid over Japan (18th April 1942)

  • 9. disadvantage
    High turnover-teams aren’t for everyone, scrutinize (inspect critically)
    Social loafing- withhold effort and fail to perform their share of work
    Disadvantage of group decision making-group think leads to poor decision, minority domination –restrictions for others-does not feel accountable.
