The Green Berets

(1965)
A novel by

 
 
In 1965, writer Robin Moore wanted to understand more about the little-known activities of the US Army Special Forces, known amongst themselves as the Green Berets. With presidential approval by John F Kennedy himself, Moore went to a place called Vietnam - and was never the same again. This monumental, bestselling work - the inspiration for the classic movie starring John Wayne and one of the first wake-up calls given to the American public about Vietnam - plunges us into the chaos that was the nation's first experience with unconventional warfare. From fighting the Viet cong to fighting alongside Montagnard tribesmen, THE GREEN BERETS captures the terror of fire-fights and ambushes, the constant confusion between friend and foe, and the amazing can-do spirit of US Special Forces "advisors" who changed the shape of the war even as it changed them. Filled with unforgettable characters - a woman spy, a daredevil pilot, and heroic soldiers on both sides of the battle - and updated to include a chapter comparing today's special forces to those from the Vietnam era, THE GREEN BERETS is an action-packed, unforgettable chronicle of a secret war and the extraordinary men who fought it.
