Audio Book Summary

A Green Beret's gripping memoir of American Special Forces in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War

In 1970, on his second tour to Vietnam, Nick Brokhausen served in Recon Team Habu, CCN. Officially, it was known as the Studies and Observations group. In fact, this Special Forces squad, which Brokhausen calls 'an unwashed, profane, ribald, joyously alive fraternity,' undertook some of the most dangerous and suicidal reconnaissance missions ever in the enemy-controlled territory of Cambodia and Laos. But they didn't infiltrate the jungles alone. They fought alongside the Montagnards-oppressed minorities from the mountain highlands, trained by the US military in guerilla tactics, armed, accustomed to the wild, and fully engaged in a war against the North Vietnamese. Together this small unit formed the backbone of ground reconnaissance in the Republic of Vietnam, racking up medals for valor-but at a terrible cost.

    The book wasn't bad, but the narrator made it seem more like a poetry book then a book about war. The words that were written in this book are not words that a soldier would use, it was too eloquent and proper. I've read many books about war and the other writers used actual words that a soldier would say during a battle. The other books I've read have kept me on the edge of my seat listening, I found myself losing interest with this book.
