It is 1968. In Asia, the war in Vietnam rages unabated. In the USA, cities burn amid protests and assassinations. Meanwhile, from the Caribbean to Bolivia, men of the 7th Special Forces wage a secret shadow-war against forces committed to the destruction of the American way of life. Stu Carter, college drop-out and freshly minted Green Beret assigned to team A-45, must learn to adapt or die in the dim jungle light, while coming to terms with concepts of honor, loyalty, and integrity. The Green Light shines brightly on a largely unacknowledged chapter of the American story.
KEITH MBUYA FOR READERS’ FAVORITE –
Perhaps Stuart Carter had volunteered to be drafted into the US army to disprove his friends’ opinions about him. Maybe he felt a genuine obligation to do something about Uncle Sam’s involvement in the war in some of the Asian and Caribbean countries. Whichever his reason, Stuart found himself on an undercover mission to Cuba with a military team designated the A-45. The team was supposed to assist a local resistance force to lead a revolution against their government and its tyrannical leader, Fidel Castro. However, before the A-45 had set up their base camp, Stuart was forced to shoot a local villager. The A-45 changed their initial plan as the incident left them compromised. They now have to hit a Cuban military barracks and escape. Will they succeed and what will happen to Stuart Carter and his team? Get yourself Karl L. Stewart’s The Green Light to find out more.
