Publisher's Summary

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.

Audible Editor Reviews

Harvard graduate Robin Moore’s classic best seller The Green Berets: The Amazing Story of the U.S. Army’s Elite Special Forces Unit is a gripping work of fiction, heavily based on time which the author spent embedded in a US Army Special Forces unit that toured Vietnam in 1963.
Jim Frangione’s performance in this eye-opening audiobook is spot-on, his gruff voice perfectly suited to the endless action and often horrific descriptions of on-the-ground combat in a violent and unpredictable warzone. Even after half a century, Moore’s tight, tense prose is still gripping, and his insights about humanity in wartime still stirring and relevant.

Green Berets Nam and beyond

Being a Green Beret Commo Man I identified with so very much coming out of Oki in 69 as a 05B/C as I did, Commo Men were hard to come by, and we shuffled thru POR near Kin Village and on to where ever we were needed, CCK, Thailand, Nam, Laos, Cambodia and this book although Fiction, was tight with a lot of truth...Much credit was given to both sides of SF, and about how ferocious in fact the VC were...Definitely not afraid to die for their Country...
I truly enjoyed this Audiobook and very well done and Moore was awesome...
Recommend anyone who is interested in SF and some Green Beret history needs to either read or listen up, it’s definitely five by...
1st & the 7th SFG(A)...
