Delta Force has earned itself a near mythical status since its inception. Delta or the ‘Unit’ as it is also known, has been at the heart of a vast, if hidden, global war waged by America's special operation forces. They are part of dismantling, in what U.S. General David Petraeus, the former NATO commander, has described as “an industrial-strength insurgency”. Even highly trained Delta Operators with their advanced weaponry and immense fire support at their disposal were put to the ultimate test of skill and courage, fighting in Afghanistan.
This book is based on real operations, with fast paced action being both gritty and graphical at times, as Delta Operators battle against overwhelming odds in a hostile land. Fighting a war hardened enemy with years of experience fighting occupying forces. Using Guerilla tactics and deadly IEDs to maim and kill as many coalition forces as they could. From the battle of Tora Bora, 10 weeks after 9/11 to the rescue of Helen Johnston the book gives a real insight into some fierce firefights and courageous rescue missions Delta undertook.
