The mission was to kill the most wanted man in the world - an operation of such magnitude that it couldn't be handled by just any military or intelligence force. The task was handed to roughly forty members of America's super-secret counter-terrorist unit formerly known as 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta; more popularly, the elite and mysterious unit Delta Force. Delta's orders were to go into harm's way and prove to the world bin Laden had been terminated. The team laid a modern siege of epic proportions against bin Laden and his seemingly impenetrable cave sanctuary burrowed deep inside the Spin Ghar Mountain range in eastern Afghanistan. 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. This is the real story of the operation, the first eyewitness account of the Battle of Tora Bora, and the first book to detail just how close Delta Force came to capturing bin Laden, how close US bombers and fighter aircraft came to killing him, and exactly why he slipped through.
