They are 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, but here, one of the founding members of Delta Force lifts the veil of secrecy and takes the reader into the action - to reveal the story of 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-D (Delta Force). In this behind-the-scenes chronicle, Eric Haney takes the reader inside this legendary unit from the beginning. He provides details of the grueling selection process, designed to break the strongest of men, that singles out the perfect soldier, and then the years of training that turns him into the modern warrior that is the Delta Force Operator. From fighting guerrilla warfare in Honduras to close VIP protection in Beirut, from rescuing missionaries in Sudan to the abortive attempt to extract American hostages from Tehran, and leading the way onto the island of Grenada, Eric Haney aims to capture the daring and discipline that distinguish the men of Delta Force.
"Inside Delta Force" aims to put the reader right at the heart of the action and gives a glimpse of a life that is as driven, inspiring and terrifying as they come.
ERIC HANEY served for more than twenty years in the U.S. Army's most demanding combat units. In his retirement, he has protected princes, presidents, CEOs, and rescued American children kidnapped around the world. Inside Delta Force is his first book.
