Eric L., served for more than 20 years in the United States Army's most demanding combat units. Today Haney lives and writes in the relative peace and quiet of Marietta, Georgia. Its as though CSM Haney is telling you the stories over a beer, or around a campfire. There are a lot of players involved, but for the most part it was easy to remember who was who. I suspect some liberties were taken in describing the operational parameters of the training and missions, but this is to be expected.

The Unit is as much about the families of Delta Force operators, and how the various missions impact their lives, as it is. .The book itself is very enjoyable.

The Unit is as much about the families of Delta Force operators, and how the various missions impact their lives, as it is about the missions themselves. There is nothing about the families or family life in this book. A few times CSM Haney mentions going home, which is clearly not in the barracks, but that's it. The timeframe is also quite different. It starts with the creation of Delta Force and the training and selection of the first batch of Operators, which Haney was one of. It describes their first major mission, the attempted release of the Iran hostages from the Embassy in Tehran in 1980. Several other major operations were familiar.

My friend, Eric L. Haney, Command Sergeant Major U. S. Army (Retired), founding member of Delta Force, wrote the book "Inside Delta Force"! Before Eric joined the U.

It is also interesting to note that while he does give a complete description of what he saw on the failed Iran Hostage Mission that this portion of the book is very small in comparison to the rest of the book.

This book has been redacted from its original publication. It lacks all of the mission details from the original publication yet has no "second edition" or "edited copy" notice anywhere on the book... Very disappointed and somewhat aghast that the book could be redacted in such a way, makes you wonder what powers that be would want this...? There was a fair bit of indirect criticism of the CIA and American foreign policy in the first edition... Just saying...

A massive read and look into the Delta Force.

I actually just used the Audible version of this and was intrigued with the subject matter.

Was blown away by what I learned (i.e. that operatives were taught by thieves or were trained to live as practical terrorists). Very cool!
It also gave some really cool behind the scenes details of missions/operations from around the world.

Listening to it as one big story was a great experience. I felt connected to the people and could visualize the journey!

What’s it like to be a member one of the most elite fighting forces in the world? The cream of the crop? So secret that no one knows where you work or what you do? Eric Haney lays it out for us in a terrific book that became the basis for the Series “The Unit”.

It was an excellent inside read on the beginnings of "Delta Force" by a key player who was there. Seeing as how Delta was modeled after the British SAS I was pleased to see "our guys" putting just as much effort into finding low tech common sense solutions to solving terrorist scenarios oft times avoiding the American penchant for unnecessary, but, big, sexy, expensive technology. Haney shows the importance that the unit places in not being "a breed apart" but as a force multiplier for the Green Berets, the Rangers, and the infantry. For that matter, as he explains, the Secret Service, the State Department, the F.B.I., the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker. The variety of skills the Deltas amass tier one expertise in is truly impressive. I better understand now what the Delta operator meant on T.V. when he said that they were never told exactly what skills the evaluators were looking for in order to be selected. "They accept not the 'best' guy but the 'right' guy." I just wish there were more excellent books like this on the Delta Force. They are very close mouthed on the subject. I do, however, understand the wisdom of not going Hollywood like the Navy Seals. Their lives can be on the line.

Haney did a great job in helping us understand a little bit about SFOD-D and what it does. Delta are the quiet professionals who don’t kiss and tell so it’s hard to understand them in contrast to DEVGRU. This book fills in a few questions. This is a must read to understand how America’s tip of the spear works.

I decided to read this book because every time I stumble across the TV show "The Unit," I really enjoy the show and I thought I would enjoy reading the book that serves as its basis. I was not disappointed, this was a very enjoyable book.

As a memoir, there's no real formal plot to follow, but Haney does a great job of creating a narrative flow that makes sense. The reader is guided through the creation of Delta Force from the perspective of a member seeking admission. Readers learn about how the selection process works gradually, just like Haney does as he's going through it. Once on the force, Haney guides the reader through the intense training required to prepare for real-world missions. Finally, Haney takes the reader through several early Delta Force missions, demonstrating how all the selection and training was essential to creating a team that was able to effectively respond to worldwide threats.

I'm not a military buff, and I appreciated that the book was written in such a way that was accessible to me. I learned enough about the military to properly frame the events described, but not so much that it was completely overwhelming and took away from the narrative. Additionally, much of what Haney describes with respect to discipline, training, honor, dedication, etc. is not limited to military life -- these principles are directly applicable in business settings or anyone's personal life. From that standpoint, there is much in that book that is generally inspirational.

As I read, I highlighted several passages. Haney's matter-of-fact observation on winning versus losing battles struck me as interesting and true: "In combat, there are no winners. The victors just happen to lose less than the vanquished." The book is full of statements like that, where Haney makes an observation and moves on without getting mired in attempting to discuss deep philosophy.

Haney's observation on how to improve an organization struck me as applicable to a business setting as to the military: "There is no better way for an organization to improve itself and move forward in a professional manner. But it is a process that must be fundamentally rooted in trust and mutual respect. The very instant it becomes a weapon rather than a lens for diagnostic analysis, the process is dead." This observation was made after describing the process of an "after-action review" where "each man's actions were gone over in complete detail... mistakes were analyzed and successful methods were noted." It seems that Delta Force was able to successfully perform self-analysis -- including detailed examination of errors -- without using that analysis as a way to punish the low performers. This is how teams are successfully built and strengthened, and is something that the business world would do well to take note of.

Finally, one of my favorite quotes from the book came as Haney discusses the problems encountered when decisions were made and/or overruled by top officials who didn't have a good understanding of what was actually happening: "Nothing is impossible for those who don't actually have to do it." I see this mentality all the time.

A note about the Kindle edition: the book contains a selection of photographs. For the print version, I don't know how the photos are presented in the book, but it's somewhat awkward in the Kindle version. They photos are stuck at the very back of the text, with no explanation or indication that they are there, and appear to simply be a direct representation of the photo page. I think the formatting of those photos could be improved. As far as the text goes, it was formatted for the Kindle just fine.

Do I recommend this book? Unquestionably yes.

I`m reluctant to perchase this type of book because they are often boring with too much background history that I ususally find myself skipping over. This book is different. Though the first half of the book is about the selection/training process that whittled down over 170 Green Berets, Rangers etc to a dozen is well written and entertaining to read. The training itself has some unconventional elements that give inight to how these soldiers carry out such diverse missions. The book is also needed to better understand what you are watching if you watch the TV series "The Unit". Thank you Eric Hanley for writing this book and bringing some well earned apprication to this very special group of American Soldiers.
