The Green Berets
By Robin Moore
First published in April 1965

 

The Green Berets by Robin Moore

Robin Moore went through Special Forces training at Fort Bragg, North Carolina as a civilian and then accompanied Special Forces Soldiers into combat in South Vietnam.  He was going to write a book of non-fiction but thought the story of Special Forces would best be told as fiction.  The book was later made into a very popular movie starring John Wayne entitled The Green Berets.  This book is very descriptive of Special Forces operations in South Vietnam during the early years of the conflict.

This is the story of the war in Vietnam - written as a novel but based on the true stories of America's Green Berets. The book and later the movie was the inspiration for many young men to join the Army's Special Forces.

Retired Major General Thomas Csrnko provides a foreword that reflects on the history and the future of the U.S. Army Special Forces. Csrnko was a career Special Forces officer who commanded the United States Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
