Publisher's Summary

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 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.

Beckwith Makes Me Proud of my Army!

What did you love best about Delta Force?

How so terribly hard it was for our top Army Officers to recognise truth & the need to change with the times. Very sad, those body counters & fear of change Officers. But, I have seen them in all walks of kife, I'm sad to say.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Delta Force?

When Beckwith showed how his semi Brit tacticts & training works & beats hell out of shoe posish!


Have you listened to any of Alan Sklar’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is by far the best read I have listened to in over 600 Books Just great.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The resistance to change by many Officers up the food chain. But, their unnecessary loss of American lives as a direct result of their stupidity or worse, their use of troops to aid their chances for promotion! The fires of Hell are not hot enough for their male egos!


Any additional comments?

I tip my hat to C. Beckwith & all of my thanks to the reader who brought this story to life. Well done & thank you! NDJohn

Good Military History

If your looking for a historical book from the founders perspective this book is for you. If you are looking for training/missions (other than operation Eagle Claw which is cover in detail) read Inside Delta Force.
