    Rainbow Six, a novel by Tom Clancy, describes Rainbow as an international counter-terrorism operation hosted by NATO.

    The base of operations for Rainbow is said to be located in Hereford (home to SAS), due to the United Kingdom being one of the most accessible countries in the world and also due to the press constraints that would not be possible to impose in the United States. Most of the characters in Rainbow are American or British, however, the NATO countries of Canada, France, Germany and Italy, plus Israel have one representative each.

    Clancy describes the structure of Rainbow as having one Director, who oversees the entire operation, and one Deputy Director, who is second in command. Rainbow is portrayed as the "blackest of black" operations, and it works off of its very own intelligence service which has intelligence contacts all over the world. In the book, when Rainbow is called upon for help from another country's government to deal with a terrorist situation, usually only one of the two teams will be sent, but in some situations both will be sent. Both teams have an officer as team leader and a senior NCO that is second in command. Not including the team leader, each team is made up of eleven men.

    In the book, there are separate incidents which later identified as being initiated by the same organization.

    You should read the book. It's a little thick, but makes a great reading. In fact, read all Clancy's books. I love them.
