Shadow Force DVD
In dangerous parts of the world, organized crime runs unchecked, threatening people, wildlife, and the environment. Sometimes it takes an unconventional private military team to do what governments and agencies cannot. Shadow Force, an exciting new seriesfrom History, follows an elite unit of former Special Forces soldiers and specialists as they operate in this menacing, high-stakes world. Among their assignments: combating piracy in Liberia, saving rare mountain gorillas from poachers in the Congo, setting up an alert system to stop tribal wars in Kenya and tracking illegal ivory into the shadows of the black market. Masters of the art of deception, surveillance, and military know-how, the team includes a counterterrorism consultant, a tactical specialist, and a Marine and Naval specialist who inspired Leonardo DiCaprio's character in Blood Diamond. Sometimes without weapons, often outnumbered and always in peril, the unit succeeds for a simple but effective reason: it outmaneuvers its criminal opponents with good old-fashioned smarts.
