Book Description

THEY SHARED A WAR, A TRADITION, AND A DECADE. THESE ARE THEIR TRUE STORIES.

Somewhere in the jungles of Vietnam, they became more than soldiers. They became...FIGHTING MEN.

A Special Forces adventurer who became Korean Minister of Agriculture for a day...a mini D-Day that happened when a Green Beret met some Navy guys with a problem...an Operation codenamed Barroom designed to parachute four five-ton elephants deep in the Vietnamese jungle. In Morris's classic collection of Special Forces stories, we are given a vivid, sometimes humorous, and often terrifying, look at the culture of the elite warrior trained to fight outside the box, survive in hostile terrain, and kill the enemy before the enemy knows he's there. Profiling men who wanted to be the best, Morris leads us through night jumps and ambushes, from the day-to-day action of Green Berets fighting alongside indigenous Vietnamese to the onslaught that was the Tet Offensive. Along the way, the jungle comes alive, the smell of white phosphorous burns the nostrils, and the voices of brave and extraordinary men--some who lived and some who died--are etched in the mind forever...

WITH EIGHT PAGES OF PHOTOGRAPHS

4.0 out of 5 stars Fighting Paratroopers? 29 Jun. 2003
By G. Arsenault - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Jim Morris writes a very good book that for the first 150 pages sticks to the gallantry of the Special Forces and the hard work they did. After that though, it mainly gets into his parachuting experiences and talks he has with his friends. Overall though it is a very good book that I would recommend to anyone developing an interest in the Operations of the Special Forces.
