Synopses & Reviews
The mission was to kill the most wanted man in the world—an operation of such magnitude that it couldnt be handled by just any military or intelligence force. The best America had to offer was needed. As such, the task was handed to roughly forty members of Americas supersecret counterterrorist unit formally known as 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta; more popularly, the elite and mysterious unit Delta Force.
This is the real story of the operation, the first eyewitness account of the Battle of Tora Bora, and the first book to detail just how close Delta Force came to capturing bin Laden, how close U.S. bombers and fighter aircraft came to killing him, and exactly why he slipped through our fingers. Lastly, this is an extremely rare inside look at the shadowy world of Delta Force and a detailed account of these warriors in battle.
“A riveting account of one of the most important—but also least understood—battles in the war on terror.” —Time
“The best book ever written by a special operations insider. This guy Furys men are the real-deal Delta Force operators. You need to know what happened at Tora Bora, and this great book will tell you.” —Colonel David Hunt, U.S. Army (Ret.), New York Times bestselling author of They Just Dont Get It and On the Hunt, and FOX News special ops and counterterrorism analyst
“Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta is without doubt one of the most fearsome military units ever assembled. Delta officer Dalton Fury didnt just take part in the battle of Tora Bora, he commanded all the special operations troops, both U.S. and British, who were there. Kill Bin Laden is a proud, riveting, warts-and-all account of that battle, one of the most important special operations missions of all time.” —Michael Smith, author of Killer Elite: The Inside Story of Americas Most Secret Special Operations Team
“An important, must-read book about real warriors.” —Cofer Black, former chief of the Central Intelligence Agencys Counter Terrorist Center
