The Originals takes you behind the scenes with the 10th Special Forces Group, Airborne, the first Special Forces deployed overseas, later known as the Green Berets. Paratroopers, hand-picked veterans from World War II and the Korean War, they were the first to complete a new concept of guerilla warfare training at Fort Bragg. Their world is shown in authentic detail by the author who has known them since the moment in 1953 when their advance party marched into the Park Hotel bar in Bad Tolz, Germany, as if they owned the place. It is the story of Kate O'Brien, an American woman who is caught in the dangerous lives and fortunes of these extraordinary men. Awarded semi-finalist in the William Faulkner Creative Writing Competition, The Pirate's Alley Society in 1998. Second edition features a new format, layout, and cover, plus some modifications to the text.
