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.

    "Absolutely required reading for all Americans."

    This book describes the formation and development of one of the most important military groups ever created by the U.S. military. These soldiers are nothing short of extraordinary. These are the men who keep us safe so that we can enjoy our freedom.
    Absolutely inspiring.

    "A concise look into these soldiers"

    Couldn't put down, pleasant narrator. I highly recommend. The descriptions of training are vivid and allow the reader to experience just a glimpse into these heroes lives.

    Story
    "Pretty good"

    Writing is solid and interesting. Gives enough detail without getting overly complicated, and keeps a good pace throughout. The reader started off fairly dull, but quickly grew on me, and I appreciated the even tone more and more. I prefer the reader to not try and interpret the emotions of the writer too much when they're not the same person. 4/5 overall. Interesting military autobiography with good storylines.
