A shattering personal account of the helicopter war in Vietnam. Robert is a veteran of more than one thousand combat missions as a helicopter pilot in the Vietnam War. This is his astounding personal story of men at war. The staggering descriptions cut to the heart of the combat experience: the fear and belligerence (the mixed emotions of a "chickenhawk"), the savagery and compassion, the raging madness and quiet insights, the lasting friendship and sudden death. Here is the straight-from-the-shoulder, electrifying truth about the helicopter war in Vietnam. "Very simply the best book so far out of Vietnam" - St. Louis Post-Dispatch
(Key Words: Vietnam War, Helicopters, Military, Robert Mason, Combat Missions).
