    About "Dalton Fury"

    1. Dalton Fury

      Thomas Greer, the former special operations commander who wrote a series of books under the pen name Dalton Fury and exposed the American public firsthand to the modern exploits of the military s most secretive units, died October 21, 2016 from cancer.Starting as an enlisted soldier and instructor in the elite Army Rangers in the mid 1980s before becoming an officer, Greer later joining U.S Army Special Forces Operational Detachment Delta, commonly known as Delta Force, the Army s version of SEAL Team Six He published Kill Bin Laden in 2008, recounting his participation in the unsuccessful 2001 mission to capture elusive terrorist leader Osama bin Laden when he was holed up in the Tora Bora mountains of Afghanistan He went on to write a series of other books, including a fictionalized account of special forces operations.Greer, 52, was perhaps the first in what has become a long series of shadowy warriors turned authors who traded their rifles for pens to meet the public s growing enthusiasm for details on the government s most classified missions Civilian leaders and military planners increasingly rely on these elite commandos to accomplish secret missions in modern war zones, creating tension between those willing to tell the story and others who choose to uphold their pledge to secrecy Every one of us was dubbed persona non grata by our former organization, Greer told U.S News in 2015 To some, that doesn t mean squat To others, it can be pretty painful as you lose a lot of close friends He spoke shortly after Matt Bissonnette, one of the SEALs who contributed to the 2011 mission that killed bin Laden, came under formal Pentagon inquiry for writing his own book, No Easy Day, as did Robert O Neill, another of the SEALs on that mission, who revealed himself on Fox News and claimed he fired the shot that killed the al Qaida leader.Their actions prompted top SEAL leaders to write a letter to those within their ranks, admonishing those who break from what they described as the critical tenet of our ethos, to not advertise the nature of their work or seek recognition for it We do not abide willful or selfish disregard for our core values in return for public notoriety or financial gain, Navy Rear Adm Brian Losey and Force Master Chief Michael Magaraci wrote at the time.Both Bissonnette and O Neill claimed they chose to tell their stories for the sake of the American public It was UBL, the biggest target of our generation, Greer explained at the time, using the military s prefered acronym for bin Laden, and referencing the fact that the White House confirmed reports the SEAL unit had conducted the assault Once the gates were opened by the Obama administration, I believe both Biss and Rob decided to make their claim to history while it was still marketable The greatest source of criticism for the former commandos centered on their decision not to seek approval through established channels at the Department of Defense for discussing classified information Greer submitted copies of his proposed books for review, as most others like him do, and any information the Pentagon deemed sensitive was either changed or stricken.Others who knew Greer say he was at least in part inspired to write his own book by a perceived barrier between the general public and the less than 1 percent of them who fought the seemingly never ending wars in Iraq and Afghanistan It brings a lot of pride to the American people, especially in times that are needed, says Jim Reese, founder of security consulting firm TigerSwan who served with Greer in both the Rangers and Delta as a fellow officer You ve got this organization that is in the shadows, and part of it should be But this is the New York Yankees What Tom was able to do with both his books and his fiction books was to bring the reality to Middle America, to let Americans be proud of this small element of Americans.

    1. The introduction to this novel and washed out Delta Force Operator, Kolt Raynor Racer needs no further intel for the reader, or else it would ruin the intrigue What I can say is that I enjoyed the almost minute by minute play of the suicide mission Racer is inserted into, to rescue his Delta Elite pals who were captured, three years prior, while trying to rescue Racer and his unit on a different mission The red herrings and strategic plans of the mission goes beyond a rescue It was brilliant and [...]


    2. Okay.good book if you like military action There are some flaws, there are some cliches but over all a good read, as you can probably tell from the 4 star rating.Kolt is the quintessential think for yourself leader in Delta Sadly he makes a decision that leads to a disaster not really his fault, but definitely his responsibility and it gets him cashiered from the unit.He then basically destructs, he crawls into a bottle He can t hold a job, he stays in the trailer he and his best friend who was [...]


    3. Kolt Raynor a Delta Force Major is still trying to recover from asecret mission gone bad Three years before Raynor made a split second decision in Pakistan that got some of his teammates killed and the restcaptured Now he has been given a second chance at redemption but at aprice He must return to Pakistan to find his captured men and bring them home He is heading for a black site a secret US prison but whathe does nt know is that al Queda is headed in the same direction This is the first in a s [...]


    4. More accurately, I would give it a 3.5 Three is too low and four is too high It had an amazingly compelling plot, but the characters left much to be desired in terms of personality The action scenes bore the mark of an expert of violence.Admittedly, this is Fury s second foray into writing and his first into fiction, and by his own admission, he is not a writer by trade But he has potential, and if he continues to practice the tips of the trade, I can easily see him ranking with Flynn and Thor i [...]


    5. Move over Brad Taylor, Brad Thor and others Dalton Fury has move into the area and he is taking over What an outstanding book and story Fury is former Delta himself and was involved in the operation to stop Osama Bin Laden He wrote a book about that, which was his first published piece In it he gives the details of the operation Black Site is his first foray into the fiction side of publishing and has done an outstanding job Cannot wait for the next episode.


    6. 3.5 stars really.why isnt there an option for half stars Good action and good pacing in thus book The plot was good as well I loved the epilog.


    7. I checked this book out for my 15 year old son who is into nonfiction stories of modern soldiering I wanted to get him to read some fiction, and thought to stick with the things he s interested in mostly shooting and fighting Black Site is a solid action story, and induced compulsive reading behavior in me, which is a certain kind of measure of literary worth It s just about right for everyone s inner 15 year old boy Dalton Fury peppers his tale with believable details about weapons, tactics, at [...]


    8. This was my first Dalton Fury book As I scanned through previews prior to reading it, I noticed that a female reader of this type of genre was almost nil That being said, I was kept intrigued with this one Fury acknowledges that he wasn t interested in learning anything in his English classes in school, which I found amusing because I truly enjoyed his writing As far as the subject, in this time of the world, it is realistic no matter what political or ethical or religious views a reader has I w [...]


    9. What happens when a washed up due to bad judgment and lack of discipline former Delta operator gets a second chance on what looks like a suicide mission A lot of technically informed action happens Of its kind, the book is top shelf.


    10. All I can say about Dalton Fury s BLACK SITE is wow I m a huge fan of Vince Flynn and Brad Thor, and this absolutely blew me away Gritty and realistic, written by a guy who has actually been there and done that, it s a ride to hell and back that I won t soon forget Now to read TIER ONE WILD



    11. Kolt Raynor Racer , a former Delta forces Major, now an alcoholic security guard assigned to a passive role sailing the shipping lanes off the Somalia coast, seizes upon an opportunity for redemption Three years prior, he led a failed mission in Afghanistan which cost not only the lives of his entire team, but the apparent loss of a rescue team headed by his best friend, Lieutenant Col Josh Timble T.J Raynor is particularly suited to the netherworld of special operations where CIA operatives, sp [...]


    12. Book source Many thanks to Macmillan Audio for providing a review copy in exchange for an honest review.Kolt Raynor, code name Racer, was at the top of his game as a Delta Force Commander when one bad decision on a covert operation plunged him into the abyss After being kicked out of Delta Force and the military completely, for three years he took odd jobs to get by and drank his life away Then one day there was a knock at his crappy trailer door and he was offered the chance to get back into th [...]


    13. Black Site is an action packed debut novel from former Delta Force Commander, Dalton Fury Fury introduces the character of Kolt Raynor whom he has stated for the record is not based on himself , a former Delta Force team member who has fallen from grace, and is brought back into the fold when new intel discovers information on a situation very close to him This is a very entertaining book from cover to cover that feels genuine and clearly based on Fury s experience, if not himself, directly.Rayn [...]


    14. When your a chapter in and you find yourself puchasing the rest of an authors work you know your onto a winner.Black site had me hooked from page 1.


    15. Took me a while to get back to this book but once I did I was very happy with it The book follows the Ex delta operator as he dives head first into a mess that wouldn t be sanctioned in time for any actual American team and gets the Intel needed to disrupt an upcoming attack In the process he gets to redeem himself a little for things in the past Unlike the stories from Brad Thor and Rollins this is about a team guy thrown out on his own to get a job done He s not naturally a lone wolf but he is [...]


    16. A fast paced action novel with a coherent plot and decent ish characters What s not to like This genre is effectively my comfort food Action spy thrillers that dont require me to think too much in order to read it The characters do need work and the oversimplification of good guys vs bad was a tad annoying Still, that seems to be the trade off when you ask for a brutal fast paced thriller.Looking forward to reading other books by this author.


    17. Very well done I enjoyed the perspective of this book as it was probably realistic Kolt Raynor is far from the super hero we see in a lot of these books Also, the CIA is less than scrupulous in its actions I look forward to the next book in this series.


    18. Awesome stuff Very fast paced and kept you glued to the book I recommend this to any fans of military action Has even weight since it is written by someone that has been there and done that Love it



    19. Listened to this book as I exercised and it took longer than expected to finish However, it keep my interest and I expect to read listen to the other books in the series Solid four star rating.




    20. Another good book in the series Better to read series in order, though not mandatory Sorry to hear of his passing.


    21. First off, let me say that I have a strong affinity for special operations SpecOps literature I have read my fair share of books dealing with paratroopers, guerilla warfare, counterterrorism, mercenary activities, and spying I tend to enjoy non fiction e.g Inside Delta Force, The Commandos, Seal , Bravo Two Zero than fiction even if you don t always know what names have been changed and what facts have been glossed over At least it doesn t come across as Hollywood.That being said, Black Site wa [...]


    22. Black Site strives to cover every aspect of the military mission s that the main character endeavors upon and does so impressively Seems little there is left out, despite the knowledge that not all can be revealed without veering into the reality of American military operations that the author claims to know Despite the complexity of all that happens int the book, it is written in a clear fashion making so much easier to digest.This is still another entry in the overflowing literary area of espi [...]


    23. Narrator Ari Fliakos3 stars for the first half, 4 stars for the second I liked it enough this second try to want to continue the series Much of my enjoyment is bound up in the lead character though Ben Coes Dewey Andreas is an exception I love Coes plots and am only so so about Dewey With Dalton, I need to get over his lead character s name Kolt Raynor A little too cheesy for me.Not much I can say about Black Site except that it s another action packed covert ops story and I did end up enjoying [...]


    24. booksbooksbooks.cFast paced, high intensity, heart pounding excitement I love a good story about people in the military stories of honor, courage and commitment Dalton Fury s Black Site definitely is that The author is detailed in his descriptions of characters and situations Dalton s background in the military and Special Forces is evident as you read through his novel and can picture the decisions that are running through the mind of his leading man.The reader is a good one for this he has the [...]


    25. Couldn t put it down Rarely does that happen for me I m a fan of the genre and have immensely enjoyed some of higgins, clancey, snterd this ranks wayyy up at the top with rainbow six and my other favorites.Unlike some of the top sellers and their novels, this is realistic and doesn t leave you with that feeling of the plot being contrived over and over again It flows, the characters are dynamic, and the action is not superficial as you are drawn in and become invested into the outcome.I ve tried [...]


    26. Well, Dalton Fury may be my new Vince Flynn The author, Fury, is a former member of Delta Force and this book sure sounds real But what would I know To me, Fury s main character, Kolt Raynor, is believable than Mark Greaney s larger than life Court Gentry Gray Man or even Brad Thor s, Scott Harvath both of which I also really enjoy reading.The story is one of redemption Kolt Raynor, is a single, 30 something, military operator that had been tossed out of Delta Personal initiative too much cause [...]
