Low Level Hell: A Scout Pilot in the Big Red One

Overview

The aeroscouts of the 1st Infantry Division had three words emblazoned on their unit patch: Low Level Hell. It was then and continues today as the perfect concise definition of what these intrepid aviators experienced as they ranged the skies of Vietnam from the Cambodian border to the Iron Triangle. The Outcasts, as they were known, flew low and slow, aerial eyes of the division in search of the enemy. Too often for longevity's sake they found the Viet Cong and the fight was on.

Overview

The aeroscouts of the 1st Infantry Division had three words emblazoned on their unit patch: Low Level Hell. It was then and continues today as the perfect concise definition of what these intrepid aviators experienced as they ranged the skies of Vietnam from the Cambodian border to the Iron Triangle. The Outcasts, as they were known, flew low and slow, aerial eyes of the division in search of the enemy. Too often for longevity's sake they found the Viet Cong and the fight was on. These young pilots (19-22 years-old) "invented" the book as they went along.

The first-hand account of a special breed of Vietnam aviator, by a highly decorated pilot whose exploits in armed helicopters have become legendary. His chopper wasn't designed to fight, but 21-year-old Hugh Mills had other ideas. His troop of scouts made up their own rules and made aerial warfare history. (Military History)
