FIGHTING MEN

A special forces adventurer who became Korean Minister of Agriculture for a day...a mini-D-Day that happened when a Green Beret met some Navy guys with a problem...an Operation code named Barroom designed to parachute four five-ton elephants deep in the Vietnamese jungle. In Jim Morris' classic collection of Special Forces stories, we are given a vivid, sometimes humorous, and often terrifying, look at the culture of the elite warrior trained to fight outside the box, survive in hostile terrain, and kill the enemy before the enemy knew he was there. Profiling men who wanted to be the best, Morris leads us through night jumps and ambushes, from the day-to-day action of Green Berets fighting alongside indigenous Vietnamese to the onslaught that was the Tet Offensive. Along the way, the jungle comes alive, the smell of white phosphorous burns the nostrils, and the voices of brave and extraordinary men-some who lived and some who died-are etched in the mind forever...

"Adventurous, moving and funny. Fascinating stories-heroic and tragic."

-John M. Vecchio, author of The Thirteenth Valley

"Terrific! Rock-solid writing, tough and true: captures the american military experience at a critical period in the nation's history."

-Tim O'Brien author of The Things They Carried
