INSIDE DELTA FORCE
THE STORY OF AMERICA?S ELITE
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 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, 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.

I actually just used the Audible version of this and was intrigued with the subject matter.
Was blown away by what I learned (i.e. that operatives were taught by thieves or were trained to live as practical terrorists). Very cool!
It also gave some really cool behind the scenes details of missions/operations from around the world.
Listening to it as one big story was a great experience. I felt connected to the people and could visualize the journey!
Anyone into history of the Delta selection process and trial of individual prospects to qualify will see into the grit and dedication required.
