    Gene Wentz's Men in Green Faces is the classic novel of Vietnam that inspired a generation of SEALs. Here is the story of a good soldier trained to be part of an elite team of warriors - and of the killing grounds where he was forever changed. Gene Michaels carries an M-60, 800 rounds, and a Bible. The ultimate SEAL, he also carries a murderous grudge against a bloodthirsty colonel who was once one of their own.

    Shere says: "Realistic views of Viet Nam missions"

    Where does Men in Green Faces rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Once I started this book, it was hard to "put it down"


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters came alive, the realism of the situations was right on, and the sensativity of Gene Wentz was portrayed well. Not everyone was a bad guy, not everyone was a good guy, that was the V.N. war.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Gurner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not. His vocal, however, was a near-perfect read, not too gruff, not too soft.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    These situations made me appreciate what our armed forces do for us every day of every year. They put themselves in harm's way; we need to appreciate them more!


    Any additional comments?

    Any one who was over there or knew of someone who served there would probably enjoy this read.
