    Story
    (19)

    The Navy has the SEALS, and the Army has the Green Berets. They are masters of asymmetrical warfare, trained to immerse themselves in hostile territory, sleeping near their enemies and building relationships with people who may want to kill them. Retired lieutenant colonel Tony Schwalm knows this group well, because he is one of them and he trained them. In The Guerrilla Factory, he provides an unbelievably gripping inside look into the grueling training that every army officer must endure to become one of America's elite Green Berets.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Guerrilla Factory the most enjoyable?

    I do think think this gives you some basic knowledge of selection process. I thought this was going to tell more about actually SF training foreign soldiers, then it did.

    To me this was more about training at Bragg then training guerrillas.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There was nobody that really made me remember them. I listened to this a few months ago.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    No. Please do not make this as a movie.


    Any additional comments?

    Tony sounds like a good guy, but I was disappointed in finding out his credentials. I would be curious to talk to men in his command. He sounds like he is more of B Team then A team.
