Overview

Robin Moore became one of the first true embedded journalists by training with and fighting alongside the Green Berets in Vietnam. Though fictionalized, his work is an eye-opening exposé of the horrors of the Vietnam War and the basis for the hit John Wayne movie of the same title. Taut, fast-paced, and interspersed with unforgettable accounts of combat, Moore's novel features an American major who goes "native" with Montagnard tribesmen, a courageous Vietnamese girl who poses as a rabid anti-American Communist to capture a murderous Viet Cong officer and the unforgettable acts of courage of soldiers in the field.

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.
