In 1978, Jerry Boykin joined what would become the world's premier Special Operations unit, Delta Force. The only promise: "A medal and a body bag." What followed was a .50 caliber round in the chest and a life spent withAmerica's elite forces bringing down warlords and war criminals, despots, and dictators. InColombia, his task force hunted the notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar. InPanama, he helped capture the brutal dictator Manuel Noriega, liberating a nation. FromVietnamtoIrantoMogadishu, Lt. General Jerry Boykin's life reads like an action-adventure novel. Boykin's powerful story will keep you riveted as he reveals how his military duty worked in tandem with his faith to bring him through the bloody storms of foreign battle-and through the political firestorm that ambushed him in his own country.

This is a great book written by a decorated Delta founding member and Retired Lieutenant General. The author describes the same selection and training procedures that Delta operators go through as described in other media. The author puts special emphasis on his faith throughout the book, as way to further explain his background and beliefs. As it turns out, the author's faith ends up being the center of a political storm later in his career. The book is well written and once I picked it up, I could not put it down. I got to learn the details about Delta's involvement in the hunt for Pablo Escobar (that was something new). I am surprised though that the author, a Lt. General, was open about the existence of Delta and its operations, given that, until this day, the U.S. government does not officially admit the existence of Delta.
