The Rosen Publishing Group, Inc, Dec 15, 2002 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 64 pages
As a direct response to the onslaught of terrorist acts in the 1970s, the Delta Force was originally organized to free hostages. It has developed into an elite counterterrorist unit of the United States Special Forces. This book covers the history of the Delta Force, their methods of rescue, and the dangerous missions in which they have been involved. Burnett also describes the grueling training every special ops soldier must go through and explains the equipment, weapons, and transport methods they use.
