I helped to select the first green berets for selection as officers in Special Operations in 1983, This story is helpful in understanding our role in Afghanistan.
They were the chosen ones?and the ones who chose to be the best. Never before had the United States given so select a group of fighting men such punishing preparation.
Now they were heading for their ultimate test of skill and nerve and sacrifice, in a war unlike any they or their country had ever fought before, in a land that most of America still knew nothing about?Vietnam...
This book is part of a series about Army warriors, and this one concentrates on the elite Special Forces known as the Green Berets. The central theme is the growth of the Green Berets, and their legend. It takes us into Vietnam.
If you like a great series about the Army, the Brotherhood of War is the best, and the Berets reflects the marvelous insider knowledge that Mr. Griffin has of the inner workings of the Army. In this book, he describes much of the infighting that took place between Special Forces and the generals who felt they were too elitist to have around. JFK was a big supporter of the Berets. The Green Berets live on, and they have proven themselves time and time again.
