The experiment went terribly wrong.
What happened during the seven months Tiger Force descended into the abyss is the stuff of nightmares. Their crimes were uncountable, their madness beyond imagination, so much so that for almost four decades, the story of Tiger Force was covered up under orders that stretched all the way to the White House. Records were scrubbed, documents were destroyed, men were told to say nothing.
But one person didn't follow orders. The product of years of investigative reporting, interviews around the world, and the discovery of an astonishing array of classified information, Tiger Force is a masterpiece of journalism. Winners of the Pulitzer Prize for their Tiger Force reporting, Michael Sallah and Mitch Weiss have uncovered the last great secret of the Vietnam War.

"In the best tradition of investigative journalism, the authors let the story speak for itself." (Publishers Weekly)
Reader does a great job covering the story and investigation in an intriguing manner. I heard about this war crime from my Captain's Career Course instructor and was disturbed to see just how bad the massacres were, and how terrible men can be when they are not held accountable for their actions.
Another Left Wing Liberal "Journalist" slings mud on the reputations of good men. The writing is cliché and sterotypical. The Vietnamese villagers are the Innocents and the US Military are bigots who want to kill. This whole book is a snide attack on Col. Lt. Col. David Hackworth, who was the most highly decorated soldier in United States military history having received 24 decorations for heroism in combat from the Distinguished Service Cross to the Army Commendation Medal.
Even as fiction, this is just a poorly written story. I don't recommend that you waste your money on this. However, if you too are a Left Wing Liberal who want to indulge your Hate America tendencies then, this is the book for you.
