    Authors Robin Moore and Michael Lennon team up in this exciting new novel to tell the "fictionalized" stories of the men who have risked it all for the U.S.A.: the Green Berets. They take us from firefights on the Cambodian border during the Vietnam War to the streets and alleyways of Iraq today. They teach us what it was really like to patrol the streets of Mogadishu in the days of Black Hawk Down. They show the horror that was Saddam's Iraq during the first Gulf War. They take us to the moonscape that is Afghanistan in search of the Taliban. The Wars of the Green Berets continues the saga of Moore's classic The Green Berets, revealing more than a few tantalizing secrets and anecdotes for the first time.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Very interesting story, but I couldn't finish it because of the horrendous narration. The guy kept spelling out every abbreviation... C-P-T and S-S-G-T, rather than Captain or Staff Sergeant. T-O-W missile, instead of tow missle. But the kicker is pronouncing "subsequently" as "sub see quently". Get a narrator that speaks English and has some understanding of military terminology.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tori Kamal?

    Any literate corporal

    Story
    (216)

    On April 6, 2003, 26 Green Berets, including those of Sergeant First Class Frank Antenori's Special Forces A-Team (call sign Roughneck Nine One), fought a vastly superior force at a remote crossroads near the village of Debecka, Iraq. The enemy unit had battle tanks and 150 well-trained, well-equipped, and well-commanded soldiers. The Green Berets stopped the enemy advance, then fought them until only a handful of Iraqi survivors finally fled the battlefield.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    A definite recommendation! The story is excellent. If you have any military background, you'll recognize the reality in the details, and the narration is the best I've ever heard. Outstanding!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Roughneck Nine-One?

    When they realized that they were facing tanks and had to make tracks. Well told!


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

    I have not, but I will look for him on others.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    It was ingesting to find that even outcasts like Green Berets have their outcasts, and their independence usually results in outcomes that the conventional military cannot conceive.


    Any additional comments?

    Did I mention that it was outstanding?
