An unprecedented view of Green Beret training, drawn
from the year Dick Couch spent at Special Forces training facilities with the
Army’s most elite soldiers
In combating terror, America
can no longer depend on its conventional military superiority and the use of
sophisticated technology. More than ever, we need men like those of the Army
Special Forces—the legendary Green Berets.
Following the experiences of
one class of soldiers as they endure this physically and mentally exhausting
ordeal, Couch spells out in fascinating detail the demanding selection process
and grueling field exercises, the high-level technical training and intensive
language courses, and the simulated battle problems that test everything from
how well SF candidates gather operational intelligence to their skills at
negotiating with volatile, often hostile, local leaders. Chosen Soldier paints
a vivid portrait of an elite group, and a process that forges America’s
smartest, most versatile, and most valuable fighting force. Download and start listening now!
