    A Riveting and Accurate Account of Combat Action

    This account of ground and air operations in Cambodia is riveting. I flew over 300 missions in Vietnam as an A-4 attack pilot and as a forward air controller in an O-1 Bird Dog. Paul Morgan did a masterful job of portraying the relationship between ground and air operations. His grasp of the action from the pilot's viewpoint is flawless. I've had enough "grunt" training to appreciate his vivid account of the ground action. The action seemed so real that at times I felt my heart rate increasing, seemed bone tired at 0300 or could feel the perspiration in my eyes! Most veterans will also relate to his respect and sympathy for the enemy combatants he faced. Dog lovers will be enthralled by the skill and bravery of "Bear", the K-9 scout dog who saves many soldier's lives and is a key element in the successful completion of the mission. This book should be required reading for the Army's Ranger school and forward air controllers!

    The Hidden Face of War

    Paul Morgan is the military story teller par excellence. In ¿The Parrot¿s Beak¿ he elicits the full gamut of emotions encountered by the warrior involved in the war that crossed the many borders of Vietnam. There is the feeling of duty, daring, elation and even despondency. We also see all the faces of the true warrior as the soldier on a mission, as a prisoner and as the enemy. He even gives us an insight into another type of warrior, the patrol dog. This part of the story is touching and unique. He was there and it shows in his vivid descriptions and accurate portrayal of military tactics. We get to see the irreverence bred in all wars with ill defined purposes. This is a must read book told by someone who saw the war ¿as it was¿.

    Like You Were Actually There

    No movie I have seen about the Vietnam war comes close to the action, drama and emotion contained in this book. I was on edge the entire time I was reading it to the point I was dreaming about it at night. I soaked up every detail of the battle set-up, the day-to-day struggle in the field, and the bureaucracy, frustration and hypocrisy the soldiers had to deal with by being involved in a non-declared war. The guts and courage the soldiers (on both sides) displayed in some of the battles described in this book is almost impossible for me to comprehend. All of the action, machismo and old-fashioned fighting is dampened by the descriptions of gore, waste of life and guilt the author so eloquently shares with the reader. I am fortunate to have never had to see or experience the events described in this book. I am also fortunate to have had the pleasure to meet the author. We are all fortunate that he has taken the time to record his experiences and share the romance and horror of U.S. Operations in Cambodia.

    Rip Roaring Story

    Through the kindness of the author, I was privileged to read the final draft of this non-stop thriller. Paul Morgan's THE PARROT'S BEAK is a rip roaring war story about Vietnam and cross border activities. I couldn't put it down, reading it cover to cover late into the night. Paul has drawn on his personal experiences, during his second tour in Nam, to spin a tail of secret missions into Cambodia. Just where reality stops and fiction begins is anyone's guess. I felt like I was there; the smells and sensations of the tropical climate and battles, seemed real enough to engulf me. This book grabs you, exhausts you, and enlightens you. Regardless of whether you consider it fact or fiction, THE PARROT'S BEAK is a must read, for anyone interested in the closing years of the Vietnam Conflict.
