by David Forsmark with Timothy Imholt PhD
CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2013. 392 pp. $13.49
November 27, 2013

A novel based on the true story of the still classified SEAL operations and the start of the Vietnam War.

"As real as fiction gets. A non-stop ride into combat told with perfection."
— BOB HAMMER, veteran FBI undercover agent and the author of The Last Undercover

"The Forest of Assassins is a unique combination of startling fact and gripping fiction—which gives readers a new understanding of the war in Vietnam. It is must-read on every page."
— THOMAS FLEMING: Author of A Disease in the Public Mind: A New Understanding of the Civil War

"The Forest of Assassins is a great read, a novel as good as the best journalism, with vivid and accurate details driving a tale of danger and deception and betrayal during the Vietnam War. This book doesn't just feel researched, it feels lived.
Whether tightening the suspense – our protagonist, Navy Lieutenant Hank Dillon eyeball to eyeball with a VC soldier and watching for the skin to whiten on the man's finger curled around the trigger of his AK-47 – or describing the oppressive heat of an innocent afternoon on the Mekong Delta, David Forsmark and Timothy Imholt make you believe every word of it. I couldn't recommend it more highly.
— ROBERT FERRIGNO, NY Times best-selling novelist, Prayers for the Assassin
