For the first time, the Project Delta Quiet Professionals finally share their amazing 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. As the primary sources of intelligence collection for Project Delta, these tough and tenacious recon men recount hair-raising adventures from personal recollections.The Ether Zone is certain to appeal to those with an interest in Special Operations Group, the Vietnam War, special operations and military history in general.
