Publisher's Summary

Col. "Bo" Bottomly is assigned as task force commander of the Dragon One Combat Task Force, and he hand picks 25 veterans for the group. Their assignment is to combat-test the A-37 in all combat roles facing all combat situations, under all combat weather conditions on the ground and in the air. But when several F-4 planes are shot down by a North Vietnamese barge battery over the Mekong River, Col. "Bo" and his wingman, Zach Butler, are needed to locate and take out the "gattler" before it can cause any more damage.

The men have the "gattler" in their sites, but the North Vietnamese have the drop on them as well, shooting down their plane and leaving them for dead. Col. "Bo", wounded and unable to locate Butler, manages to get his four-foot-by-six foot dinghy into the water before he passes out. When he regains consciousness, he finds himself adrift in the South China Sea, the trail of blood he's left acting as a calling card for several hungry sharks. With nothing but his service weapon he takes them on single handedly - literally.

    "Vietnam War Journal - He is a stud but....."

    I just listened to his book. He is a real war hero with great stories. I enjoyed the meat of the book but he digresses way to often and for too long on issues not related to his terrific stories. Also, he reads it himself. He's a fighter pilot and a commander, not a narrator. It made it difficult to listen to. I've listened to or read numerous other Vietnam stories from men who were there. They have been much more focused and painted a much better picture in the time alloted.

    "Personal but not professional"

    This is a story written and read by a true pilot (legend?) from Vietnam war. Reader will follow his carrier, in joy, pain and misery.
    I like history books. I've read quite some from WW1 and on. This "only" gets 3 stars since its written by a guy who is better at flying than writing. It's more than a journal - but not quite a book, but not a story - no, it's many stories slabbed together.
    Anyhow - worth listening to.
    If you look for Vietnam piIot personal stories, Chickenhawk and 100 feet above hell are magnitudes better.
