Overview

In Vietnam Robin Moore became on the of the first true “embedded” journalists, training and fighting alongside America’s most elite fighters. Though fictionalized, The Green Berets exposed the American public to the horrors of the ground war in Vietnam, and gave the men of the Green Berets the recognition they deserved.

Here is the tale of the courageous South Vietnamese girl posing as an anti-American Communist to capture the Viet Cong officer who murdered her family. Here is the graft and double-dealing of South Vietnamese officers undercutting America’s war effort. More importantly, here are America’s soldiers showing unimaginable bravery in the face of a determined and deadly enemy.

With a foreword by Major General Thomas R. Csrnko reflecting on the history and future of this elite fighting unit, The Green Berets stands as an enduring classic.

Robin Moore's Vietnam War era classic 'The Green Berets' remains as timely and relevant today as it was when it was first published more than 40 years ago. In reading the stories (all based on actual events) one is amazed when you realize that the problems the Special Forces dealt with in Vietnam forty years ago are the same ones now being faced in the War on Terror. Its all here corrupt local soldiers, religious differences, interferring politicians and the cultural clash between the traditional military mindset and the unconectional warrior. Apparrently nothing ever changes.

This newly updated version of The Green Berets is just as relevant today as it was when it was first published. Though the battlefields have changed, the Special Forces remain a decisive part of military operations, and this books is their amazing story. I highly recommend it.

Robin Moore's revised edition is even better with an added love story. Re-reading the book brought back many good memories with whom we served and why we tried so hard. Also reminds us of the will to win is teamwork. A culture needs to have live freedom to be willng to die for it. Freedom has to be learned and earned. That is what you will read/recall reading THE GREEN BERET.
