The Mission, the Men, and Me: Lessons from a Former Delta Force Commander

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Pete Blaber

Narrated By: Joe Barrett

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: December 2013

Duration: 9 hours 58 minutes


As a commander of Delta Force—the most elite counterterrorist organization in the world—Pete Blaber took part in some of the most dangerous, controversial, and significant military and political events of our time. Now he takes his intimate knowledge of warfare—and the heart, mind, and spirit it takes to win—and moves his focus from the combat zone to civilian life.

As the smoke clears from exciting stories about never-before-revealed top-secret missions that were executed all over the globe, readers will emerge wiser, more capable, and more ready for life’s personal victories than they ever thought possible.

“His thesis is that there aren’t that many different situations in life, and there aren’t that many different ways of dealing with them—have a few simple principles and, when in doubt, refer to them. He’s a stoic with a sense of humor, and I very much enjoyed his book.”—David Mamet
