Publisher's Summary

Delta Force—the US Army’s most elite top-secret strike force. They dominate the modern battlefield, but you won’t hear about their heroics on CNN. No headlines can reveal their top-secret missions, and no book has ever taken readers inside—until now. Here, a founding member of Delta Force takes us behind the veil of secrecy and into the action to reveal the never-before-told story of First Special Forces Operational Detachment-D (Delta Force).

He is a master of espionage, trained to take on hijackers, terrorists, and enemy armies. He can deploy by parachute or arrive by commercial aircraft, survive alone in hostile cities, speak foreign languages fluently, strike at enemy targets with stunning swiftness and extraordinary teamwork. He is the ultimate modern warrior: the Delta Force operator.

In this dramatic chronicle, Eric Haney, one of the founding members of Delta Force, takes us inside this legendary counterterrorist unit. Here, for the first time, are details of the grueling selection process—designed to break the strongest of men—that singles out the best of the best.

With heart-stopping immediacy, Haney tells what it’s really like to enter a hostage-held airplane. From his days in Beirut, he tells a remarkable tale of bodyguards and bombs, of a day-to-day life of madness and beauty, and of how he and a teammate are called on to kill two gunmen targeting US Marines at an airport. As part of the team sent to rescue American hostages in Tehran, Haney offers a first-person description of that failed mission that is a chilling, compelling account of a bold maneuver undone by chance—and a few fatal mistakes.

From fighting guerrilla warfare in Honduras to rescuing missionaries in Sudan and leading the way onto the island of Grenada, Haney captures the daring and discipline that distinguish the men of Delta Force. Inside Delta Force brings honor to these singular men while it puts us in the middle of around-the-world action that is sudden, frightening, and nonstop.

    "Interesting"

    A fascinating look into what it takes to work in special forces and how much strain it takes to work in these high stress situations. I enjoyed it a lot.

    "Great listen"

    If you love military reads, you'll enjoy this book. The author is not voicing a Gung Ho approach to his background. It's a b good story about a unique unit and one man's experiences with the unit and its men.

    "Loved it."

    Fascinating details told by someone who obviously lived in them himself. I have read a decent amount of military books and this is in my top three.

    Story
    "Delta Force"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Inside Delta Force to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print.


    What about Robertson Dean’s performance did you like?

    A good narrator


    If you could give Inside Delta Force a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Details of Delta Force!


    Any additional comments?

    I guess because I am a woman, I found it overwhelming. It left me behind on so much details. I observed that many of the comments were men who fell right in with it and many who were in the military understood every word of it. Sorry, I wish I could have given it five stars.

    "Read the print version"

    The audiobook was tough to get through because the narrator was very robotic when reading emotional statements and punch lines. I wish I read the book in hindsight. The book held great information and a few incredible stories in between a lot of self-righteous descriptions of other people.

    "Do not pass this up. A read that's unforgettable"

    This is a military history book that everyone should read. It tells a tale that none of the other books 10 + now on military that I have
    read even come close to.

    "A must read!"
    If you could sum up Inside Delta Force in three words, what would they be?

    Educational, interesting, memories


    What about Robertson Dean’s performance did you like?

    Though very factual, his voice did not make it seem so.
    He managed to make it enjoyable without being too dramatic or boring.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish the book had been longer, or that there was another book. There were many times where being busy around world came without details.
