    Story
    "Great listen"
    What made the experience of listening to Blackhorse Riders the most enjoyable?

    having been in that particular nasty place I can understand what they were involved in


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fact that we smoked the NVA.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The harrowing tale of being in the bunker areas that were so well hidden until you were upon them without the knowledge of them being there until the air was ripped by the sound of automatic weapons fire.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    hero's all

    Story
    "11th. Amored Cav."

    I served in Nam and new of friends who served with th 11th Cav. I have never heard of this story. It does not surprise me that there is no record of this battle. I was awarded a Bronze star for action in I Corp. but never had a write up for it, and later was only awarded one bronze star from a different action. The clerks in the rear wrote themselves up for all kinds of awards yet were never in combat. Alot of veterans never recieved awards they had earned.

    I spend about 55 hours a week driving and really enjoy having a good book to pass the miles.

    Story
    "Good story, bad narration."

    I really enjoyed this story. It was along the lines of We Were Soldiers Once, and Young. I have never been a fan of Dick Hill. Whatever he reads is Dick Hill reading the story. He is so slow at times I thought my download might have had a bug or error. Overall I enjoyed the story of intense combat in the latter days of the Vietnam war. If you can stand the monotone reading it is worth the price. Don't listen to Dick Hill while driving...
