Overview

Men in Green Faces: A Novel of U.S. Navy SEALs by Gene Wentz, B. Abell Jurus

"Full of ambushes and firefights…From page one I knew I wanted to be a SEAL. The more I read, the more I wanted to see if I could measure up." —Mark Owen, #1 New York Times bestselling author of No Easy Day

Because it's a novel, the truth can be told. Because it's the truth, you'll never forget it...

Gene Wentz's Men in Green Faces is the classic novel of Vietnam that inspired a generation of SEALs. Here is the story of a good soldier trained to be part of an elite team of warriors—and of the killing grounds where he was forever changed.

WITH A NEW FOREWORD BY THE AUTHOR

Gene Michaels carries an M-60, eight hundred rounds, and a Bible. The ultimate SEAL, he also carries a murderous grudge against a bloodthirsty colonel who was once one of their own. To bring him in, Michaels and his men will go behind the lines, where they'll take on 5,000 NVA in the fight of their lives.

In this stunning novel, former SEAL Gene Wentz brings to life what it was like to be a SEAL in Vietnam, running an endless tour of top-secret, death-defying operations deep in enemy territory. From the camaraderie to the harrowing recons, from brutal interrogations to incredible, toe-to-toe firefights, here are America's most feared warriors as you've never seen them before.

I wasn't aware of this book until Mark Owen mentioned it. I loved it from the first page and found it hard to put down as the Seals went from one hot spot to another. As a Vietnam Army vet myself, I could relate to the sounds, feel and smells of the stories. Don't think I could have made it as a Seal but am really proud of what those guys did.

The book was quite well written, an exciting page-turner that gives you a look into what it was like for the "original" SEALs during Vietnam. I would have given this book 5 stars but was disappointed after reading it through to find out it was fictional. Though the stories may be based on true Ops I give more weight to similar books written from non-fictional events. Regardless it was a fun, exciting read and I would recommend this book to folks who enjoy this genre.
