From the thundering B-52 bombing raids on Hanoi to inserting search-and-destroys in the jungle, from wielding a death-spewing Spooky to taking out SAM missile sights in the North, the skies above Vietnam were a hell of deadly million-dollar machinery, split-second decisions, and death-lock engagements with the enemy. Now nineteen-year-old David Anderson is a raw pilot in an Assault Helicopter Company, slamming straight into the strength of the VC. But from his first mission to Charlie's first invasion it doesn't take Anderson long to discover that this is a whole new kind of war. With no support from behind and only death in front of him, Anderson knows that there's only one way to fight in Vietnam--and that's to do it your own way.
They were America's elite, battle-hardened flyers... men who came from every service and every corner of the war. They lived with the agony and irony that was Vietnam and flew with courage and commitment. This is their story.
