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 Fantastic"

    This audiobook covers one Operator's experience going from a sergeant with the Rangers, through Delta selection and operations, all the way through some insights in 2005. I cannot recommend this enough.

    "eEnergy Rush of intrigue and suspense"

    I really love the story obviously discretion is used to protect the truth about Delta Force really works. So encouraging to see that there's men that are willing to put their lives on the line for our country that we really should appreciate our freedom

    "Amazing"

    I can't think of one thing I didn't like about this book. I will be listening to this book again and maybe a 3rd time. Robertson Dean also has a great voice for this book. I can't recommend it enough. You are the man CSM Haney!

    Story
    "Excellent book!"

    I'm not sure how anything I say about this book can convey the thanks and appreciation I feel toward the author and other Delta Force members for living the lives with which to write it.

    The audio was engaging, the material very insightful and interesting.

    Again, thank you to the author, his comrades, and their supporting families for your service to our country; even when those self-serving people were putting the lives of people greater than themselves on the line for their own selfish, arrogant pride.

    I have recommended this book already to family and friends. It's been great discussion material.

    "great story, unfortunate propaganda"

    would give 5 stars, if not for the eagerly passed on 2nd hand Islamic propaganda against Jews.

    Story
    "Far better than expected"
    What did you love best about Inside Delta Force?

    It was written from the author's experiences, not as a historic documentary.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    author


    What does Robertson Dean bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I didn't notice his voice detracting from the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I drive 3 to 6 hours per day and actually looked forward to getting in the car, just so I could listen.


    Any additional comments?

    You will learn things that the news media never told us, from the author, who was there. Some are good, and some bad.
