Lt. Col. James Gordon ‘Bo’ Gritz – “the American Soldier” for the Commander-in-Chief of the Vietnam War – is one of the most decorated combatants in US history. The inspiration for Rambo, the A-Team’s Colonel John ‘Hannibal’ Smith and Brando’s Colonel Kurtz in Apocalypse Now, Gritz was at the heart of the American military and foreign policy – both overt and covert – from the Bay of Pigs to Afghanistan.
