content around the World of Special Operations.

The magazine consolidates multiple popular web properties into a single, large-scale destination for military interest and elite special operations forces content, creating the “Superhero Universe of Special Ops Content.” Reports on Notable Content Every
Day of the Week

magazine has earned special praise in the journalism community for a list of
articles. One of these was a breaking story by Managing Editor of
and a veteran of the Greek Army (National service with 575th Marines Battalion
and Army HQ), Stavros Atlamazoglou. This history-changing story only broke
weeks ago.


Saturday, October 26, 2019, a Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) operation
in Syria resulted in the death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the
Islamic State and one of the most wanted men in the world. The JSOC operation
took place in the Syrian province of Idlib and sources with private knowledge
of the plan confirmed to SOFREP that the assault force came from Delta Force
and the 75th Ranger Regiment.

Trump tweeted at the wee small hours of Sunday morning that “Something very big
has just happened!” The White House alerted the country to expect a big
announcement to come down today.

to reports received by Newsweek, President Trump had approved the action almost
a week earlier.. Although there is little skepticism that the Delta team got
its guy, complete confirmation is pending on the DNA examination from the
terrorist leader’s remains.

After his (al-Baghdadi) forerunner was killed by a joint U.S.-Iraqi Special
Operations team, the militant cleric climbed the rocky ranks of power and in
2010 became the commander of the Islamic State of Iraq (ISIS) – which he
increased to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (the Levant) in an attempt
to encroach into the neighboring countries, which were encountering severe
civil strife as an outcome of the Arab Spring. In Syria, that unrest turned in
to a bloody civil war. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had a $25 million bounty on his head.

editorial team at was the first to acquire details on how Delta
Force conducted the raid on al-Baghdadi and was the first publication to
discuss the reason that Delta Force was called on instead of SEAL Team 6.

interesting note to the reader:
If you were ever looking to contact SOFREP
Managing Editor, Stavros Atlamazoglou, you can ‘usually find him on the top of
a mountain admiring the view and wondering how he got there’. With a central
subject focused so heavily on the heavy subject matter that naturally comes
along with ‘military-grade content, it’s nice to know that a sense of humor
will always be found inside the tough content on and that can be
validated in the author byline of the online publication’s Managing Editor.


you haven’t already heard, SOFREP just released the long-awaited return of
“Inside the Team Room” with U.S. Navy SEAL Snipers!

series is available exclusively to our Team Room members. Not a Team Room
member yet? We’ve released the first three episodes for free on our SOFREP
YouTube channel. Check them out below.

2012 published the first Team Room series featuring Navy SEAL and
American Sniper, Chris Kyle. SOFREP founder Brandon Webb had the thought for a
show concept that would take viewers behind the scenes and since then, the
series has been viewed millions of times behind the SOFREP Team Room members
division and has featured the more notable authors, and characters in the
Special Operations community.


We Tell It Like It Is

editorial staff of SOFREP does not gush about the United States military;
rather, they tell the truth or as their website touts, they simply ‘tell it
like it is’. An example of this is in an article that details the Army’s
controversial decision to purchase a large number of Sig Sauer pistols for its
soldiers. The handgun model in question was full of defects, and Sig Sauer
competitor Glock issued a formal complaint to the Department of Defense
alleging that the Army was putting pistols into the hands of its soldiers that
did not meet their own quality standards.

Sig Sauer is working with the Army to resolve the issues, the author implies
that purchasing them in the first place was a bad decision. He also notes that
many of the faulty guns were issued to service members and that the problems
with these guns needed to be fixed ASAP.

want our audience to tell it like it as well.

Crate Club Group Created SOFREP to Put an
Emphasis on the Elite

reporting often focuses on the best of the best: the elite special forces
teams. In one notable article, the author compares and contrasts Delta Force
and SEALTeam Six. The article came in the wake of confusion over exactly which
branch of the military was responsible for taking out Bin Laden.

points out that one of the units emphasizes old-school fighting techniques that
are at the very core of combat. The other, by contrast, is about employing the
emerging fighting techniques of the future in order to be on the vanguard of
how wars are fought.

there, he gets into a comparison of how the two units select team members. One
looks closely at the results of tryout exercises in the Appalachian Mountains
while the other emphasizes the soldier’s reputation in previous field exercises
and actual combat.


radio is a companion site to the magazine’s main site and offers podcasts
featuring interviews with military and other experts. The content can be about
pretty much anything a person of action would be interested in. For example,
one recent episode is about fighting pirates on the high seas. Another features
an interview with an American astronaut.
