Revue de presse

“Delta Force, considered the equivalent of SEAL Team 6, are far more tight-lipped than the SEALs.” (New York Times)

“Delta Force is arguably the most effective fighting unit in the world.” (Washington Post)

“Absolutely compelling...nations without men like this simply don’t survive.” (The Wall Street Journal)

“The Army’s most elite commando unit.” (Los Angeles Times)

“A page turner. ... Hard to put down. ... One of those rare books that military people will annotate and underline and hesitate ever to lend out. ... Beckwith’s candor is extraordinary.” (Armed Forces Journal)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The definitive insider's account of the U.S. Army's most elite and secretive special-ops unit, written by the legendary founder and first commanding officer of Delta Force

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 ("the Army's most elite commando unit."—Los Angeles Times) 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.

La Delta Force (de son vrai nom 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta ou 1st SFOD-D) est une des principales unités américaines dédiées aux missions spéciales ou secrètes. C'est la principale unité anti-terroriste de l'armée américaine. Elle assure en fait une grande variété de missions, y compris parmi les plus clandestines.

Ce livre raconte la naissance de cette unité spéciale, de la plume même de son fondateur, Charles Beckwith, qui finira sa carrière dans l'armée américaine avec le grade de colonel. Beckwith a d'abord servi dans l'infanterie, avant d'intégrer les troupes aéroportées américaines puis les forces spéciales. Il est conseiller militaire au Sud-Viêtnam dès 1960. Beckwith participe également à un programme d'échange avec le 22 SAS Regiment britannique, dont il prendra le meilleur pour créer la Delta Force. Il participe d'ailleurs avec les SAS à la campagne anti-insurrectionnelle contre les communistes en Malaisie, pendant laquelle il contracte une leptospirose, qui lui est presque fatale. Beckwith rentre ensuite aux Etats-Unis et écrit de nombreux rapports pour promouvoir la création d'une unité sur le modèle des SAS au sein de l'armée américaine, sans succès. Devenu officier opérations du 7th Special Forces Group, il révolutionnaire l'entraînement de l'unité en mettant l'accent sur la formation conventionnelle du Béret Vert et non sur la guerre non-conventionnelle et la formation d'unités militaires au sein de pays amis, comme c'était le cas jusque là.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you are interested in Delta, this book is for you 17 août 2016

After starting to read this book, I couldn't stop. The story flowed very smoothly and was very interesting. Being written by the creator of Delta, it was very informational about the process he took (over a number of years) to even get the program started. He talks about his motivations, the purpose of Delta, and the process (which were my favorite parts) of how he started and developed the unit. Overall, a great read. Seemed to go by quickly but was highly enjoyable and informative. Would highly recommend to anyone interested in Delta.

I was with the advance party of the 101st Airborne Division's in late 67. Lt. Col Beckwith was the commander of us early arrivals. He may not remember me, I was the senior medic for Div Headquarters. With him came many legions. When the remaining Division arrived, he, in formation, turned the advance team to General Barsonti. I was in the rear, but his presentation was made and we then knew he was all a soldier could be. After six months Sgt Maj. Dun naway grated my request and transferred mebto MACV SOG mobile action team training at Dia On. At the same time my father died and I was sent home and was given. Companionate reassignment near my mother, she had become an alcoholic, both me and my brother were in Nam at the same time, he was the xo of a rifle company with 2/5 1 Air Cav. He had two Purple Hearts and highly decorated. We both remained state side, but I digress. I enjoyed this book so much I sat down and read it from cover to cover in two days. If you want to learn about special ops, this is the book. The ending will answer many questions you may have about a true soldier. God bless hard charges Charlie.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 FASCINATING 16 juin 2013
Par S.Ballantine - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
One of the most interesting stories I've ever read. Not only is it interesting from the perspective of learning how Delta Force came into being, but the breadth and depth of the way the operators are trained and the meticulous planning that goes into a mission was a real eye-opener. I started out with a huge amount of respect for Special Forces already, and this book increased that respect to awe, and even more appreciation for and gratitude to them.

What was just as interesting and terribly disturbing was the shortsightedness and turf-protecting response from the military brass that Col. Beckwith had to struggle against for years. He's not shy about naming names either, which I give him a lot of credit for. It's frightening to think that our armed forces are being run by such short-sighted, petty, and "what's in it for me, to hell what's best for the troops or the country" high-level military brass.

Great book, great read, and Colonel Beckwith is a true hero. Thank you, Sir.

This is an interesting book, but in many ways it's not exactly what you might expect it to be. What it is a great history of the origins of "Delta Force" in Vietnam and the creation of this group in the 1970s and 80s by Col. Beckwith.

The book itself is quite interesting and filled with political intrigue and military action. However, half way through it becomes a book on project management as the author deals with the problems of developing the army's elite anti-terrorist unit.

It is interesting to note that Beckwith writes about getting his men training. But doesn't get very specific with the skills he required. I think this was an intentional as at the time the book was published there was little information available about this unit. More current information can be found in Eric Haney's book Inside Delta Force: The Story of America's Elite Counter terrorist Unit and The Mission, The Men and Me: Lessons from a former Detla Force Commander by Pete Blaber.

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. If you are interested in first person accounts of the hostage situation, I would recommend reading 444 Days by Lt. Col. Scott, and Guests of the Ayatollah by Mark Bowdin (not first person).

What I enjoyed about this book is it is well written, shows the author has a sense of humor, and most of the entire trip down Memory Lane. I remember these times. They had a big impact on who I am and what I've done in life. This book is a time capsule.

Charlies book is in route as we speak.My husband had the honor of serving under Charlie back in Vietnam so we're waiting with great anticipation to read this.
It is factual that Charlie had to deal with a lot of red tape political bs to get certain projects( jobs) done.There was a period of time before Delta Force was officially formed where Charlie did some of his best, most amazing work.Some might term it as "Black Ops" as at the time it was a highly secretive mission involving saving the lives of thousands of trafficked children in South East Asia during the Vietnam war.These children aged 3 to teen years were taken away from their families & kidnapped from their villages by traffickers.They were treated worse than any animal in captivity. They were held in underground dirt pits in isolated areas of the jungle,starved and abused in ways sexually by their captors that we as civilized people can't comprehend even in our worst nightmares.
I've been told that it was a horrific scene & no government was up to dealing with at the time.Charlie, a father himself wanted to do something about it.He took this task on willingly despite the fact that initially he got zero cooperation from the higher ups.He found a way somehow to get this project up & running with a group of 5 specially selected young men pulled from various military branches. They were named "The Angel Girls" and my husband was one of them being the youngest member. To anyone who complains about having to read through Charlies distaste with having to deal with the knuckleheads in government, he wasn't being a whiner nor was he making any of that up.It must have been hugely frustrating to see horrific injustices being perpetrated on innocent victims,the inadvertent casualties of wartime and not be able to help. Despite whatever obstacles he faced the project did come to fruition & justice was served to those who deserved it.The lives of thousands of children in southeast Asia were saved.Most importantly Charlie made sure that each & every child was returned to his her or her village back into the arms of their grateful parents.Some folks want to only talk about what happened with Charlie & what appeared to be an unsuccessful mission under Jimmy Carter but honestly but I'm not going to let Charlie go down like that.Charlie wasn't one to brag about all of the amazing, wonderful things that he was involved in, that wasn't his style.I will tell you this, by all accounts Charlie Beckwith was a true American hero,a good man deserving of respect and honor.
