Chuch Carlock volunteered to become a helicopter pilot in 1966, convinced that by the time he finished training, the war in Southeast Asia would be over. He never suspected that it would be only the beginning of his involvement in the bloody conflict. Carlock recounts the constant dangers, including the chance of being cut down by an elusive enemy or friendly fire. He also evokes the camaraderie of men who lived on the edge, in a book that will alter the way you think about the Vietnam War. Includes 16-page photo insert.
