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.

    Story
    "My favorite book of all time."

    Just an outstanding view into special forces, army style, and the special men who serve in delta force. I am fascinated with men of grit, character, toughness, and wisdom, and these men have those and many other positive qualities in spades. And they are deadly as hell.

    Story
    "fascinating, candid first hand account of the earl"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Inside Delta Force to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version


    What did you like best about this story?

    It reminded me of some of my own experience in training with the US Army in the 1980s. The author wrote candidly and frequently made the association between the immediate details of his mission with the global context.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I particularly enjoyed the author's description of the selection and qualification experience. I felt like I was there with him.


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

    The reality of serving on a counter terrorism task force in the 20th century.

    Story
    "Making these heroes humans."

    The story is riveting, and the performance spot on. It gives the listener a rare opportunity to see that these larger than life heroes, these iconic, mythical fighting machines are actually just people; remarkably gifted, insanely disciplined and tremendously selfless people, but flesh and blood none the nonetheless. I thank Eric Haney for his service to our Nation and for his unwavering honesty.

    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.
