“Delta Force is arguably the most effective fighting unit in the world.”
Los Angeles Times
“The Army’s most elite commando unit.”
The Wall Street Journal
“Absolutely compelling...nations without men like this simply don’t survive.”

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.
