Williamson. When diplomacy failed, President Carter ordered the newly formed Delta Force to conduct a raid into Iran to free the hostages. The U.S. forces flew C-130s into the Iranian desert to a desolate patch that was to be the base of operations, Desert One. But Desert One proved not to be deserted, and between the man-made chaos and the unforgiving desert sandstorms, disaster was close at hand. This true-life event reads like thrilling fiction. 80 pages, 7½"x 9¾", softcover.
