The mission was to kill the most wanted man in the world—a mission important enough it couldn't be handled by just any American military or intelligence force. This was a mission of international importance, and the best America had to offer was needed. As such, the task was handed to roughly forty members of America's supersecret counterterrorist unit—an elite and mysterious unit known as Delta Force. These Delta warriors had help, about as good a help as you can get. The CIA, a dozen of the British Queen's elite commandos, and another dozen or so Army Green Berets stepped up. This team waged a modern-day siege of epic proportions against Osama bin Laden and his seemingly impenetrable cave sanctuary burrowed deep inside the Spin Ghar Mountain range. 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. Kill Bin Laden is the first ever accurate, firsthand account of this battle and an inside look at the extraordinary nature of Delta Force and how they operate.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The best book ever written by a special operations insider. This guy Fury’s 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, US Army (ret.), New York Times bestselling author of They Just Don’t Get It
A proud, riveting, warts-and-all account of...one of the most important special operations missions of all time. Michael Smith, author of Killer Elite: The Inside Story of America's Most Secret Special Operations Team
“Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta is without doubt one of the most fearsome military units ever assembled. Delta officer Dalton Fury didn’t just take part in the battle of Tora Bora, he commanded all the special operations troops, both US 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 America’s Most Secret Special Operations Team
“A riveting account of one of the most important—but also least understood—battles in the war on terror.” Time
“An important, must-read book about real warriors. A story that so positively reflects what on the ground decision making, professional acceptance of risk and maximizing interagency cooperation can do. Dalton Fury shows us with amazing detail and insight what highly trained and motivated special operators can accomplish successfully in combat out of all proportion to their numbers.” Cofer Black, former chief of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Counter Terrorist Center
