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 best America had to offer was needed. As such, 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. 

The American generals were flexible. A swatch of hair, a drop of blood, or simply a severed finger wrapped in plastic would be sufficient. Delta’s orders were to go into harm’s way and prove to the world bin Laden had been terminated.

These Delta warriors had help: a dozen of Britain’s elite commandos, another dozen or so Army Green Berets, and six intelligence operatives from the CIA who laid the groundwork by providing cash, guns, bullets, intelligence, and interrogation skills to this clandestine military force. Together, this team waged 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 our fingers. Lastly, this is an extremely rare inside look at the shadowy world of Delta Force and a detailed account of these warriors in battle.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The best book ever written by a special operations insider. This guy Fury’s men are the real-deal Delta Force operators. You need to know what happened at Tora Bora, and this great book will tell you.”

    Colonel David Hunt, US Army (ret.), New York Times bestselling author of They Just Don’t Get It

  • “Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta is without doubt one of the most fearsome military units ever assembled. Delta officer Dalton Fury didn’t just take part in the battle of Tora Bora, he commanded all the special operations troops, both US and British, who were there. Kill Bin Laden is a proud, riveting, warts-and-all account of that battle, one of the most important special operations missions of all time.”

    Michael Smith, author of Killer Elite: The Inside Story of America’s Most Secret Special Operations Team

  • “A riveting account of one of the most important—but also least understood—battles in the war on terror.”


  • “An important, must-read book about real warriors. A story that so positively reflects what on the ground decision making, professional acceptance of risk and maximizing interagency cooperation can do. Dalton Fury shows us with amazing detail and insight what highly trained and motivated special operators can accomplish successfully in combat out of all proportion to their numbers.”

    Cofer Black, former chief of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Counter Terrorist Center

    " An interesting viewpoint on the early campaign in Afghanistan, especially the Tora Bora battle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Gavin | 1/23/2014

    " This is a must-read. My only "complaint" about it is that the writing is kind of cheesy, which is unfortunately typical of books like this. It is easily overlooked; the author is a soldier, not a master of literature. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Dan | 1/18/2014

    " Interesting pre-Bin Laden kill take on the hunt. Reads in part like a novel, and in part like a historical narrative. I was in the middle of the read when they got BL which made the book that much more interesting. Not a lot of details about the operations which remain classified but enough for us to use our imagination. " "
