Green Berets

Green Berets

by Hans Halberstadt

Paperback(Mass Market Paperback)



Since their formation in 1961 under President Kennedy, the role of the U.S. Army Green Berets has been widely misunderstood. Volunteers are trained not as "super commandos", but rather to carry out a wide range of missions, such as intelligence gathering, communications, training guerillas, and special weapons. Since the Vietnam War, the duties of the Green Berets have been redefined to include antiterrorist operations and strategic reconnaissance. This all-color photo essay depicts the uniforms, weapons, and tactics of the Green Berets in detail, while a concise and fact-packed text provides specific information on organization, training, and missions.
