Wanted: Volunteers for Project Delta. Will guarantee you a medal. A body bag. Or both. With this call to arms, Charlie Beckwith revolutionized American armed combat. Beckwith's acclaimed memoir tells the story of Delta Force ("the Army's most elite commando unit."—Los Angeles Times) as only its maverick creator could tell it—from the bloody baptism of Vietnam to the top-secret training grounds of North Carolina to political battles in the upper levels of the Pentagon itself. This is the heart-pounding, first-person, insider's view of the missions that made Delta Force legendary.

    Very dull

    I read this book for the history and to be entertained. I had to literally make myself finish it after the first 70-80 pages. A book about Delta should have more action and alot less board meetings and typing reports. I regret this purchase. Having said that, the Col. is still an american hero for sticking with his beliefs and making Delta happen.
