    In addition to communicating much of what helicopter pilots in Vietnam did and endured, it also does a commendable job at describing the roles and missions of the Long Range Reconnaissance Patrols that the author inserted and extracted from the jungles of Vietnam.It retains the flavor of many my story memoirs of Vietnam and in that regard is very personal at times, but despite this there is much to learn about how and why things were done by reading this book.

    Excellent book, I ve read it at least 10 times I served as a Huey Crew Chief during the Cold War so I can really relate to the crew experiences in this book Between Mr Grants great story telling and my own experiences I could feel the action coming to life We owe a huge debt to our Vietnam Vets and this book does a good job of explaining why.
