Publisher Description

In 1978, Jerry Boykin joined what would become the world's premier Special Operations unit, Delta Force. The only promise: "A medal and a body bag." What followed was a .50 caliber round in the chest and a life spent with America's elite forces bringing down warlords and war criminals, despots, and dictators. In Colombia, his task force hunted the notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar. In Panama, he helped capture the brutal dictator Manuel Noriega, liberating a nation. From Vietnam to Iran to Mogadishu, Lt. General Jerry Boykin's life reads like an action-adventure novel. Boykin's powerful story will keep you riveted as he reveals how his military duty worked in tandem with his faith to bring him through the bloody storms of foreign battle-and through the political firestorm that ambushed him in his own country.

NEVER SURRENDER

Great book. Having served with SF units, I was thankful that the General gave credit where it was due and held back where he needed. Many guys are writing books and in my view giving up too much. We didn't sign up for that. The General held true to his duty.

Never surrender

A wonderful book by a true hero. Mesmerizing accounts of the seminal events that shaped the last thirty years. A must read book for students of history. No single person did more to reverse the fortune of the Special Forces from the humiliation in the desert to the successes of "The Horse Soldiers".
