Publisher's Summary

During the Vietnam War, far from the halls of Congress, snooping reporters, loving family members, and conventional US military forces in South Vietnam, a deadly, top-secret war was conducted for eight years across the fence in Laos, Cambodia, and North Vietnam by small Green Beret-led reconnaissance teams.

Critic Reviews

"Finally, a book by a 101st Airborne aviator on his heroic role in the eight-year secret war conducted during the Vietnam War by SOG Green Berets. Over the last decade there have been compelling books printed by SOG Green Berets who ran missions across the fence into Laos, Cambodia and N. Vietnam, often understating in general terms the critical role of helicopter units and aviators like Roger Lockshier. Now, Roger flies readers into the secret war, jutting through ack-ack anti-aircraft gunfire and the horror of being shot down in Laos, providing a well-written account that grabs readers' attention. Thank you Roger.” (John Stryker Meyer, author of On the Ground, Across the Fence, and SOG Chronicles)

From a Guy In Back

I’m a Vietnam Veteran who flew AH-1G Cobras in the 101st Airborne Division and had flown MACV-SOG CCN missions into the same area so I know where of the author writes. Of all of the Vietnam accounts I’ve read, this is the first one written by a “guy in back,” a Crew Chief/Door gunner on a C-model Huey gunship. Since Cobras only have a crew of 2, pilot and copilot/gunner, I had no experience with having a crew. This book filled that knowledge gap. The author writes with understated clarity. Some of his descriptions of combat action got my heart pumping and adrenaline flowing. I felt I was there with him. I cannot say enough good about this book. I listened to it as an audio book. The narrator was perfect, not always the case with audio books. The timbre of his voice, the pace at which he narrated, and the fact he pronounced sometimes-difficult terms and names correctly was a pleasant surprise. The narration and the account are top notch, First Class. If you are a Vietnam Veteran, this will certainly bring back memories. If you aren’t but want to know what it was like to fly and fight a helicopter during that war, this is the book for out. Thank you Roger Lockshier, for sharing this with us. AIRBORNE!!! ALL THE WAY!!!

Outstanding.

Hard to express how much I enjoyed reading this book. As Mr Lockshier says, there aren’t many books about the part of the Vietnem War that he experienced.
