Overview

At Kadena Air Force Base on Okinawa, Angus and sixty-two other young Marines stand at the tail of the huge airplane, a Hercules, that will take them on the last leg of their journey to Southeast Asia. The flight has been held up for about twenty minutes for a late arrival. When the man finally shows up, Angus is startled by his appearance. He's wearing faded, frayed fatigues, carrying an old green canvas bag in one hand, and a long, leather case in the other. He wears a strip of camouflaged cloth tied around his head, and pulled down level with the top of his eyebrows. His hair is long, almost reaching his shoulders. While Angus stands there gawking, all the young Marines walk up the ramp past him. Before Angus realizes it, he is standing there alone, the last passenger to climb aboard. There were a few vacant seats left, but he decides to sit next to this late arriver. It might prove to be interesting. Next stop, Viet-Nam.

    From the author of Challenge The Death Angel.

    The U.S. divided the Viet-Nam War into six campaigns. I was there for five of them between 1965 and 1969, as a Combat Photographer/Photojournalist. Since I write about what I know best, Challenge The Death Angel is more truth than fiction. Learn about the CIA¿s secret covert Viet-Nam War¿Snipers! Assassins!This is the story of Angus Thurston, who grew up in a cotton mill village in South Carolina. He graduated high school in 1967, with the Viet-Nam draft breathing down his neck. To avoid being drafted into the Army, he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps. Right out of Parris Island recruit training, Angus is hustled off to Viet-Nam, where he is secretly enlisted into the CIA as a sniper¿an assassin. From here it is all non-stop action. For 270 pages! You will see Angus fight with his conscience. and the subtle changes in Angus¿ character and personality as he ¿matures¿ in his role as sniper. Angus¿ partner is unlike anyone you have ever met¿a Viet-Nam veteran of two tours and into his third, all in the role of ¿sniper.¿ He is known only as Cody. At times his presence overpowers Angus in the protagonist role. His fatigues are worn to the point of fraying, and his left boot sole is held in place with duct tape, and his long hair is kept in place by a camouflaged head band. Even Viet-Nam veterans are shocked when they learn that the CIA¿s Phoenix Program was responsible for more than 20,000 assassinations of civilians, VC suspects, and North and South Vietnamese military personnel. There are thousands of other kills that the CIA denies having any part in, and are classified as illegal murders. This implies that there must have been a legal murder classification, if we can believe that. I hope you will enjoy reading my book as much as I enjoyed writing it for you. Tom Jaynes

    Cobras

    I think its only you, so I will make it easier. The cobras slither and one of them suddenly lunge towards Deathclaw's back.

    Deathkit

    Runs in. The five moon old kit's legs were long, so she was fast. "Let's dance." She leaps at A cobra, her long claws digging into its eyes and her teeth into it's throat.
