Retired Army Command Sergeant Major Eric Haney discussed his memoir Inside Delta Force, published by Delacorte Press. A behind-the-scenes chronicle, the book reveals the story of the elite counter-terrorist unit, 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-D or Delta Force. The book covers Haney’s experiences during the formation and early operations of Delta Force and the details of some of his assignments. In the fall of 1978, Haney was recruited and ordered to report to Fort Bragg, NC, where he underwent a rigorous selection process. His training included advanced work with explosives and weapons, and a “final exam” in which the class was sent to Washington, DC and given assignments that involved evading the FBI. A question and answer period followed the presentation. close
