The Author: Michael Frederic Dilley is a former paratrooper, serving in XVIII Airborne Corps and the 82nd Airborne Division. He served in Vietnam for two years. He retired from the U.S. Army in 1984 after duty as a counterintelligence agent, intelligence analyst, case officer, and interrogator. During his last eighteen months in the 82nd Airborne, he helped to develop SERE training for high risk personnel. He has a B.A. in History from Columbia College in Missouri.

Michael has written four books, one of them with Lance Q. Zedric, a fellow military history author. He has contributed to two anthologies. Three of his books deal with special purpose, special mission units regardless of their country or their time in history. In addition to these books he has written many articles and book reviews dealing with the same subject matter for various publications. Elite Warriors  and Great Raids in History  were both selections of the Military Book Club. His most recent book, Behind The Lines - A Critical Survey of Special Operations in World War II, was published in late September 2013 by Casemate Publishers, both in the U.S. and the UK.  The fourth book, Interrogation Approaches (editions 2004 through 2008) was written for an employer to be used in a course of instruction. Michael is the unattributed author of this book, which is not available to the public at large.
