Description

Kill Bin Laden The mission was to kill the most wanted man in the world--an operation of such magnitude that it couldn't 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 America's supersecret counterterrorist unit formerly known as 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta; more popularly, the elite and mysterious unit Delta Force.
The American generals were flexible. A swatch of hair, a drop of blood, or simply a severed finger wrapped in plastic would be sufficient. Delta's orders were to go into harm's way and prove to the world bin Laden had been terminated.
These Delta warriors had help: a dozen of the British Queen's elite commandos, another dozen or so Army Green Berets, and six intelligence operatives from the CIA who laid the groundwork by providing cash, guns, bullets, intelligence, and interrogation skills to this clandestine military force. Together, this team waged modern siege of epic proportions against bin Laden and his seemingly impenetrable cave sanctuary burrowed deep inside the Spin Ghar Mountain range in eastern Afghanistan.
Over the years, since the battle ended, scores of news stories have surfaced offering tidbits of information about what actually happened in Tora Bora. Most of it is conjecture and speculation.
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.

    This book presents a look at the first days of the largely untold story of the fight in Tora Bora. The most striking detail to take away is the delicate nature and nonstop frustrations of the relationships with the Afghanistan alliances and tribal groups. The important overall lesson: a small team of US commandos took over a mountain range and decimated the enemy in just a couple of days, while the Russians failed to take over the same area after ten years of fighting the same enemy.

    A great book a first hand account on what really happened at Tora Bora. The story is genuine and gives you a secret look into one of America's most secretive elite counter terrorist unit. Dalton Fury and his men deserve a lot of credit for a job well done despite the limited capabilities politically to chase down Bin Laden in one of the worlds most unforgiving terrain. Hard to put down, and gives you a great deal of pride knowing that their are great Americans like Dalton Fury and his men. A book every American should read.

    I won't rewrite the book here, but just say this is a compelling and well written account of one of the most infamous battles of our time. I highly recommend to any history buff, or anyone who wants to get a little bit into the psyche of a special forces operator.

    Amazing story that finally tells the truth of what happened at Tora Bora. Book was a great read and provides the American public with an insider's account of the incredible political and environmental challenges these warriors faced, but pressed on and overcoming each every one, except for the political ones. Dalton Fury and his men are true American heroes who put their lives on the line and had the skill, leadership, and courage to do whatever it took to bring down the most sought after terrorist in the world. Although the mission did not end the way these warriors would have wanted, they inflicted impressive damage to the enemy. Had the politics not played such a critical role in allowing Bin Laden to escape, Dalton and his men would have gotten the job done ten years ago. Hopefully, the leadership of this country learned a valuable lesson and will never allow such a mistake again. Anyone interested in reading about some amazing spec ops bravery, dedication, and courage, then this book is a must read!
