To be a U.S. Army Green Beret by Gerry Schumacher

The latest book in the popular series The Green Berets' motto is Liberate the Oppressed, and it takes extremely capable and highly trained individuals to carry out their operations in the world's most dangerous and unforgiving locales. They operate behind enemy lines, sometimes for months at a time, are trained to work in all climates and cultures, and have a no surrender will of spirit if ever taken prisoner. This book provides an insider's view of what it take to become a member of the Army's Special Forces the elite Green Berets. It describes the skills they learn and equipment and tactics used to engage in unconventional warfare, foreign internal defense, direct action, special reconnaissance, information operations, and counter-proliferation.


Army Magazine, March 2006 (circ.: 85,000)

To Be a U.S. Army Green Beret is written by someone who has obviously 'been there - done that.
This is a must

-read and in my opinion should be standard issue to every high school library and recruiting station in America.
