Court Martial

(1972)
A novel by

 
 
Why were five Green Beret officers, including the Vietnam chief of Special Forces, accused of murdering a double agent by their commanding General? How was the President forced to use the power of his office to quash the trial?
What secret plot was the CIA eager to conceal?
What is the mysterious "Third Force" in Southeast Asia?
An extremely disturbing episode in America's involvement in Southeast Asia provides the plot for this novel, written by two men of unique experience in the area. Robin Moore, author of "The Green Berets," has maintained his close connections with the Special Forces, visited Vietnam frequently, and served as a consultant to many Green Berets. Henry Rothblatt has defended a number of widely publicized military cases in Vietnam. In a brilliant piece of courtroom drama, the authors have created an explosive account of Green Beret officers on trial for murder of a Vietnamese national.
Using their wealth of experience, Moore and Rothblatt have painted a devastating picture of multi-level betrayal and chicanery against the background of Washington, D.C. and a Pentagon seething with military and political rivalries. They examine the morality of life and death in modern guerrilla warfare and pose questions that can only be answered by the conscience of a nation.
