Kill Bin Laden
The mission was to kill the most wanted man in the world--a mission requiring the best America had to offer: roughly forty members of America's super-secret counterterrorist unit, an élite and mysterious unit known as Delta Force. And these Delta warriors had the best help they could ask for: the CIA, a dozen of the British Queen's elite commandos, and another dozen or so Army Green Berets. This team waged a modern-day siege of epic proportions against bin Laden and his seemingly impenetrable cave sanctuary, deep inside the Spin Ghar Mountain range. Over the years since the battle, news stories have surfaced offering tidbits of information about what actually happened in the caves of Tora Bora, most of it conjecture and speculation. This is the first firsthand account of this battle, and an inside look at the extraordinary nature of Delta Force and how they operate.--From publisher description.

This book is an account of the Battle of Tora Bora (December 2001), written by an ex-Delta Force commander who was there. The name of the author (Dalton Fury) is different from the real one, for security reasons. The book gives an insight into the dynamics between the U.S. Special Forces and the mujahedin, who were supposed to be U.S. allies. It also describes why the battle was a military failure, and how bin Laden escaped the mountains when he was pretty much defeated. The book also gives an insight into the Delta Force.
