    Lieutenant General William “Jerry” Boykin has served in a variety of posts during his 36-year career in the Army, most of them involving Delta Force and Special Forces. He is an original member of the Army’s Delta Force and participated in almost all of the U.S.’s special operations since 1979, including the Desert One hostage-rescue attempt in Iran in 1980, Panama in 1989, and the invasion of Grenada in 1983, where he was wounded by a .50 caliber machine-gun round through the chest.

    He was commander of the Delta Force units in Mogadishu, Somalia, during the “Black Hawk Down” incident in 1993, where he was wounded by a mortar blast. He has also participated in numerous smaller special-ops missions, including the rescue of American missionaries in the Sudan in 1983 and the capture of drug lord Pablo Escobar in Colombia in 1992. His last post was as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence in the Pentagon, overseeing the gathering and exploitation of intelligence during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    Never Surrender (Hachette) is his first book.
