John Wayne’s much loved and also much hated Vietnam War flick The Green Berets, based on the novel by Robin Moore, is the story of a group of elite soldiers known as The Green Berets. Led by Colonel Mike Kirby the group must help build and sustain a base camp in Vietnam and later capture an enemy general. In between the two missions a doubting reporter finds the truth and ugliness of war and relationships are formed between the soldiers and the people they have sworn to protect. Directed and starring John Wayne The Green Berets became an instant classic that helped pave the way for similar war films.
