Where there Were No Innocents is a war story with a love story inside.
Mack Brinson is member of the fabled Green Berets and is assigned to the premier clandestine operations unit in Vietnam. Because of his technical expertise, he has been targeted by the Viet Cong for assassination. His difficulty is multiplied when he falls in love with a beautiful Eurasian woman. The Communists now target her as a way of attacking him. He must protect her and survive.

Mack Brinson is a Green Beret Captain in Vietnam at the height of the war, 1967. He’s been selected to serve on the staff of MACV-SOG, the premier covert operations unit in Southeast Asia. His wife’s lawyer has sent him a divorce notice. He is a lonely man. His assignments have been less than exhilarating and he has been given a mundane task. The end of the tedious task is anything but boring. He fights for his life in a Viet Cong attack. Excitement enough for anyone. His loneliness soon comes to an end. Brinson meets a stunning Eurasian woman, Song. He finds love he’d never expected. After his first combat experience, his command begins sending him on highly classified missions. He works with a SOG Recon Team on a wiretap mission along the Ho Chi Minh Trail in Laos. As a result of his expertise in clandestine surveillance, Brinson becomes a marked man. The North Vietnamese and Viet Cong put out orders to kill him. Song also becomes a target. Brinson’s combat experiences include fighting in the streets of Saigon during the infamous Tet offensive. Where There Were No Innocents is a true-to-life story of war written by a man who is a former Green Beret, who served with MACV-SOG.
