John Stryker Meyer is a former Green Beret, reporter and now the author of Across the Fence: The Secret War in Vietnam.

For eight years, far beyond the battlefields of Vietnam, American Green Berets fought a deadly secret war in Laos and Cambodia.

Go deep into the jungle with five Special Operations Group warriors surrounded by 10,000 enemy troops as they stack up the dead to build a human buttress for protection. Witness a Green Beret, shot in the back four times and left for dead, who survives to complete his missions.

Shudder as an enemy soldier touches a Green Beret's boot in the dark of night. Cringe as a Sergeant on SOG Spike Team Louisiana calls in an air strike on his team to break an enemy's wave attack. A team member dies instantly, and a Green Beret has an out-of-body experience as he watches his leg get blown off.

"

"Best book written about this secretive unit. "

Jack Murphy

Former Green Beret

Author of "Reflexive Fire"

"As the commander of SOG, I can say that "Across the Fence" accurately reflects why the secret war was hazardous for our troops and so deadly for the enemy.

-- Major General John K. Singlaub (U. S. Army Ret.)

"Black Ops told with the terrifying clarity that only one who was there can tell it."

-- W.E.B. Griffin & William E. Butterworth IV

"If the hair doesn't stand up on the back of your neck, you might want to check your pulse. "

Dick Stanley

"As a former Greet Beret I have been on patrols in Afghanistan and Iraq, but reading this book made me feel like a pansy. This is the best book about this secretive unit. "

Jack Murphy

Author of "Reflexive Fire"
