Summary

Author Larry Chambers vividly describes the guts and courage it took to pass the though volunteer-only training program in Nha Tarng to be part of the 5th Special Forces Recondo School, the hair-raising graduation mission to scout out, locate, and out-guerilla the NVA. Here is an unforgettable account that follows Chambers and the Rangers every step of the way--from joining, going through Recondo, and finally leading his own team on white-knuckle missions through the jungle hell of Vietnam.

Critic reviews

“I made this book mandatory reading for my Rangers.... We went from the worst platoon in the regiment to the best platoon in six months. In training we’d get to the objective so fast they had to hold us back.” (US Army Master Sergeant H. "Max" Mullen Ret. 75th Ranger Regiment)

Finally, a good book!

I loved this book because it's a first hand account of a Long Range Patrol soldier in Vietnam. It isn't some liberal writer's third hand account. It isn't a dry overarching history of the Vietnam War. It is the very interesting story of a very interesting job.

This is not the entire organizational book!!

I've read Mr Chamber's book many times and this is a shitty chopped up version with some Clint Eastwood want a be reading and mispronouncing much of the people, places, and things from the Vietnam war.
Do not waste your time nor money. Buy the paperback book and enjoy the entire story for a better price than this crap.

Recondo LRRPs

I liked this book and had read this very story in the three books of Recon called Six Silent Men, which I would recommend Audible to have in their store. They are very very good books as I served in a Recon Co. in Viet Nam.
