The Green Berets’ deadliest asset, he was chosen to do their most dangerous job…
The Green Berets sent Captain John Silvernail to San Sebastian to change the tide of history. His mission: to hook up with the rebel army that was whipping the pants off the U.S. backed dictator. His goal: to win its leader’s confidence before Castro did.
But to get on Comachos’s good side, Silvernail had to fight for him. And once the fighting had started, there was no telling where it would lead or when it would stop.
