Главная The Guerrilla Factory: The Making of Special Forces Officers, the Green Berets.

For the first time, an insider takes readers deep into the grueling training that every Army officer must endure to become one of America’s elite Green Berets. THE NAVY HAS THE SEALS, and the Army has the Green Berets. They are masters of asymmetrical warfare, trained to immerse themselves in hostile territory, sleeping near their enemies and building relationships with people who may want to kill them. Retired lieutenant colonel Tony Schwalm knows this group well, because he is one of them and he trained them. In The Guerrilla Factory, he provides an unbelievably gripping inside look into the grueling training that every Army officer must endure to become one of America’s elite Green Berets. The Special Forces Qualification Course, also known as the Q Course, is infamous in U.S. Army lore. It transforms conventional soldiers, through blood, sweat, and tears, into unconventional guerrillas. As a young soldier, Schwalm earned his own Green Beret there. Later, he was the commander of Special Forces officer training at Fort Bragg, evaluating and redesigning the crucible in which leaders face brutal tests of physical strength, stamina, and wits. The Guerrilla Factory is the engaging and compelling story of Schwalm’s experience there as a student (from selection to graduation) and his time as the commander of training at Fort Bragg. It is a story of young soldiers striving to become the elite of the elite—of their trials, physical and emotional, and of their triumphs and losses. In this dramatic account of the challenges faced by these young soldiers, Schwalm describes how men are forced to demonstrate ingenuity under intensely adverse conditions as they are pushed to the point of hallucination, walk until their feet are bloody, and fight off packs of angry dogs with nothing but a rubber rifle. Soldiers today face an entirely different kind of warfare and must be schooled to deal with unusual circumstances. They must have intricate knowledge of how to gather information in a dangerous, unstable atmosphere, and they need to be able to adapt quickly to differences in their surroundings. Schwalm’s book takes readers deep into this world, showing exactly how soldiers acquire the necessary skills. Revealing details never before shared outside military circles, Schwalm provides a rare and rousing look inside the courageous hearts and souls of soldiers who put their lives on the line for duty, honor, and our country.

A really interesting book about the ever changing training program for Special Operations Officers and this particular Officer's time before training and after. A very readable account which details the "Q" course, or qualification course, for Officers and beyond. I've been out for over 20 years and found some things refreshingly familiar and disappointingly so. The "Q-Course" is a tough course, just lasting that long in a training environment physically and mentally meant to test you in multiple ways is in itself a challenge, acquiring the skill set to be successful outside of training lends some logic behind the duration. The disappointingly familiar parts are the teams (A-Detachments and B-teams) tasked with dealing with 21st Century challenges and being forced to train with and make due with antiquated equipment, being forced to scrounge equipment or purchase equipment on their own dime, and/or being dropped some high-speed gear at the last moment that they will need to train up on just prior to, or while on, deployment. It's a logistical problem that needs the Military to be less tied to the ebb and flow of the political tides of Washington, D.C. rhetoric. Overall, I enjoyed the book and would encourage anyone wanting a better understanding of the U.S. Army Special Forces (The Green Beret), or interested in Special Operations at all, to read it.

Don't buy this work expecting tales of exploding ordinance, gunfire and the rocket's red glare. Forget stories of bloated self-aggrandizement that similar works contain, full of chest thumping and metaphorical high-fives with the audience. This book is none of that.

Col. Schwalm's memoirs are a significant look behind the curtain of Special Forces training. He provides a clarity and focus on the mission philosophies, training methods and employment of Special Forces without needless attention to minor details. Schwalm establishes his credibility early-on with readers by candidly noting his leadership failures, what he learned from them and how he used it to make him a far better leader. Obversly, he also takes special pains to note those people in his 20-year career who helped him along the way.

COL. Schwalm provides an insight to the makeup of every SF soldier, and delineates the line that separates mental from physical toughness. His description of SERE school in particular is harrowing, and leaves the serious reader in awe of the mental fortitude one requires to survive such training.

Serious readers will be left with a greater sense of appreciation for the American war-fighter.

I have read many books on the Army's Special Forces (Green Berets are hats, the people are Special Forces Soldiers). This is by far the best at explaining what the SF does, why they're different from Navy SEALS, Marine DAP and Recon and the Air Forces PJ's and Combat Controllers. No other organization has anything even remotely like them and they are head and shoulders above the rest of the military's Special Operations Forces. Nobody else can do what they do, nobody! Think heavily armed cultural anthropologist mixed with an advanced practice paramedic, ham radio operator and mix in explosives and you come close..........kinda. With this book you don't get so much gee whiz, look how cool we are with our neat equipment and high speed/low drag attitude and you do get a lot of good info about what SF is, what they do and how they do it. The world's premier professional soldiers. Would give my left..........well, you know, for an hours' conversation with Schwalm.

An excellent overview of the famous Green Berets and their real mission in unconventional warfare (winning hearts and minds). Also hilarious in parts. (I laughed out loud when Schwalm described the arrival of the Berets in Haiti, from the Hatian perspective.) Gave me a whole new appreciation for what these guys do, and why they are so under-appreciated.

Combining this with de Mesquita & Smith (The Dictator's Handbook), it becomes clear why politicians (including and especially in democracies) often misuse and fail to follow through, thus snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Thank you, Tony, for an outstanding piece of work, sharing your vast experience and insight into leadership and this venerable special forces cadre.

You want an insider perspective of what the Berets are really all about? Read this book. And the nice part about it, is it is not only highly informative, but very readable and entertaining. Well done. Highly recommended.

A very unique and well written insight on the US Army Special Forces. Tony Schwalm’s engaging writing style allows you to picture yourself in the action right beside him - making the book extremely hard to put down. He does an outstanding job in outlining why the Green Berets are truly a different breed than any other SOCOM unit and most importantly why it matters
Lightwind
A brilliant and well written first hand experience of an officer who went from commanding a tank in Desert Storm to an SF candidate and then field officer in Haiti and Afghanistan. Well written, honest, and insightful, this is a must-read for those who enjoy true stories of military experience.

A really descriptive read for anyone in the military community looking to give SFAS a shot from the commissioned side. I'm enlisted and still found it helpful, especially the parts about selection/Q-Course. Doesn't talk much about Ranger school (for obvious reasons to anyone who's read this book), a course I'm looking to go to this summer, however if that's more of what you're looking to read about, I'm sure there's plenty of books on Ranger school out there.
