Description - Special Forces at War by Shelby L. Stanton
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 Featuring rare and unpublished images, it presents an exclusive insider's view of covert activities such as Project Delta - the destruction of North Vietnamese troops by aerial bombardment -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no aspect of Special Forces activities during the Second Indochina War has been overlooked, making this a unique historical document.
