Inside Delta Force: The Story of America’s Elite Counterterrorist Unit

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).

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.

    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who hasn't read any books about the Navy SEALs or Special Forces.


    What was most disappointing about Eric L. Haney???s story?

    It wasn't that exciting. It was filled with mundane events and conversations obviously put in just for filler.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Robertson Dean?

    I don't have a favorite but definitely someone who has more experience. He sounds like this is maybe his first attempt. He needs a lot of practice and or training before he should be turned loose.


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I can appreciate the men who serve not only in Special Forces but in the military period. Thanks for bringing them to our attention.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read several books on the Navy SEALs and compared to what they go through becoming a member of Delta Force seems like Boy Scout Camp.

    "Good listen"
    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    It was an in depth look at an organization the US government still denies even exist


    Could you see Inside Delta Force being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    The author is an producer on the TV show "The Unit" based on his experiences
