seemed very believable ... unit members were courageous warriors and not gun happy cowboys
a bit bland
A well written, interesting story. My husband I enjoyed listening to it on a road trip, and it made for good discussion afterwards. The inside info from events we recalled reading about or seeing on the news was pretty enlightening and even scary at times. The author talked about the human emotions involved in his work, which often involved killing, yet he also demonstrated a sense of humor regarding other things. The narrator's voice sometimes seemed a bit slow but did not detract.
Yes, if you want to read about the lives of our soldiers. it is interesting to know the level of commitment it takes to be the best. these men are amoung the best at what they do. i am glad that we have such commited men and women here in the United States.
the first hand account about the people, the different perisonallities that make up our special forces, and the important work that they do. I thank GOD that we have such men and women.
the oppertunity to here the story. i do not have much time to sit and read, so as i am driving, i listen to books.
yes, and i will listen to it again.
great insight into the training and life of delta member
I liked it
the selection process
Have a Goodn'
What an extra ordinary American - as are all the men and women who serve this country in the most dangerous places. He is remarkable. I wish there had been more about his personal life. I come from a military family and could identify with many of the sacrifices of Eric Haney. I really enjoyed this book.
This is a great book! If you like Military History this is a must read! A good look into the very secret community of special operations.
I love reading and I love Audible. Their fantasy and Sci-Fi selection is excellent!
This is the first military type book I've read in Audible and I enjoyed it. I feel like the details were really packed in the beginning of the book about the creation of Delta Force but seemed to be less dense towards the end. I liked the personality of the author and the tone of the book. I haven't read any other books of this kind so don't have much to compare it to, but found it really interesting.
TRY DOWNLOADING TWICE, ON EITHER THE SECOND PART WORK
HOW THE GROUP FORMED AND THE TEST THEY HAD TO PASS
I've been listening to audio books for well over twenty years (even before audible was available). Secretly, I wish I could be a narrator.
As a Navy Veteran, I used to idolize the Navy Seals until I listened to this book by Retired Sgt Major Haney (founding member of the Army's Delta Force). These guys make make the Navy Seals look like a bunch of prima donnas. Navy Seals typically want glory. Delta force are the true unsung heros of our Armed Forces. They keep their identities secret. Even their families don't even know they're in Delta Force. Delta Force is by invitation only and the attrition rate is 95%. They receive tens of millions of dollars worth of training including secret agent training at Camp Perry (aka CIA's Farm) in Williamsburg, VA. They are truly Super Soldiers and Super Spies. They're the best of the best of the best! I'm just glad they're on our side to protect us from all the bad people in the world.
I sell oil, in Houston ( go figure, right )
Eric walks you through the beginning and a few mission of Delta. Taught me allot about what those guys have to go through...
