The Story of America’s Elite Counterterrorist Unit
Eric L. Haney Command Sergeant Major, USA (ret.)
They are the U.S. Army’s most elite, top-secret strike force. But you won’t hear about their heroics on the news, and no one–even their families–can know who they are. First Special Forces Operational Detachment-D–Delta Force, America’s supersecret counterterrorist unit. On paper they do not exist, but without them, our lives wouldn’t be the same. From learning to open padlocks with a soda can to rescuing hijacked airplanes, these men are masters of espionage and warfare. They are the anonymous heroes who protect us everyday from the threats we’ll never know existed.

From the Inside Flap:

Delta Force. They are the U.S. 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 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-D (Delta Force).
INSIDE DELTA FORCE
THE STORY OF AMERICA'S ELITE
COUNTERTERRORIST UNIT
He is a master of espionage, trained to take on hijackers, terrorists, hostage takers, 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 behind-the-scenes 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: the Delta Force Operator.
With heart-stopping immediacy, Haney tells what it's really like to enter a hostage-held airplane. And from his days in Beirut, Haney tells an unforgettable 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 U.S. Marines at the Beirut airport. As part of the team sent to rescue American hostages in Tehran, Haney offers a first-person description of that failedmission 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, Eric 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 action that is sudden, frightening, and nonstop around the world.
