The United States has deployed its military 11 times to kill or capture a single man. American forces have mounted hunts in sweltering jungles and frigid mountain ranges, desolate deserts and teeming urban labyrinths. Here are photos from five of the more celebrated campaigns—to catch Geronimo (1885–1886), Pancho Villa (1916–1917), Augusto Sandino (1927–1932), Manuel Noriega (1989–1990), and Saddam Hussein (2003). Benjamin Runkle wrote an account of each of these manhunts in "Dead or Alive," part of MHQ's Winter 2012 cover package.
