This photographic history is unprecedented in scope, and covers all Special Forces activity in the Vietnam war, from the first deployments of Green Berets into battle, the ever-expanding instruction and training, wartime advisory roles, border surveillance, strike force, and special operation roles, be it against the Viet Cong, heroin smugglers, hearts-and-minds. Featuring rare and unpublished images, it presents an exclusive insider's view of covert activities such as Project Delta - the destruction of North Vietnamese troops by aerial bombardment - and Special Forces camps before, after, during enemy attacks. The weapons used by the resourceful Green berets are shown and fully detailed, as is ordinary camp life and special missions: no aspect of Special Forces activities during the Second Indochina War has been overlooked, making this a unique historical document.
