This true story of a Special Forces officer in Vietnam in the mid-sixties will acquaint you with the unique nature of Special Operations Forces and how covert operations are developed and masked to permit — even sponsor — assassination, outright purposeful killing of innocents, illegal use of force and bizarre methods in combat operations.
Expendable Elite reveals the fear that these elite warriors share with no other military person — not the fear of the enemy they have been trained to fight in battle, but fear of the wrath of our government should they no longer be needed and find themselves classified as… expendable.
A centerpiece of this book is the CIA mission to assassinate Cambodian Crown Prince Norodum Sihanouk, the author’s unilateral aborting of the mission, and the drama surrounding the dispatch by the CIA of an ARVN regiment to attack, destroy the camp and kill every person in it as retribution for standing up against the CIA.
The dramatic rescue by ARVN LTG Quang Van Dang of eight American Green Berets and hundreds of South Vietnamese will capture your curiosity and whet your appetite for more in this ongoing SPECIAL OPERATIONS series.
