Boots on the Ground - The History of Project Delta  New!
by Stephen A. Carpenter
Early in the Vietnam conflict the U.S. command structure recognized a need for solid verifiable intelligence about enemy locations, movements and tactics. Much of the enemy's covert activity was occurring in Laos and Cambodia, areas where U.S. presence was not permitted. Project Delta was the first successful unit that evolved to perform long range reconnaissance and other counter insurgency missions deep in enemy territory. Project Delta's operations remained classified until 1996. For the first time, the history of this storied unit has been recorded from volumes of declassified military documents and from hundreds of hours of interviews conducted in 2009. The author is a former member of the U.S. Army's Special Forces and was a recon team leader in Project Delta.

The Ether Zone by Ray C. Morris
Project Delta and its clandestine special reconnaissance operations proved to be one of the most successful Special Operations units of the Vietnam War, yet few Americans have ever heard of them. This small unit, comprised of less than 100 U.S. Army Special Forces men, amassed a record for bravery second to none. Now, for the first time, the Project Delta "Quiet Professionals" finally share their story. Highly trained as experts in special reconnaissance techniques and procedures, the covert Project Delta missions were accomplished through recon team insertions into enemy territory. The primary sources of intelligence collection for Project Delta, these tough and tenacious men recount hair-raising adventures. Enter the world of a highly classified project to learn what makes U.S. Army Special Forces soldiers tick, and learn the legacy of these men of honor, their breathtaking heroics, humility, humor, camaraderie and brotherhood.
