Publisher's Summary

Most of us never get to test ourselves in combat.

As a UH-1 Helicopter pilot flying in the jungle highlands of South Vietnam, Warrant Officer Jim Crigler and the men he flew with were tested daily. Coming of age in the late 1960s and early 1970s was challenging for most young men of that era. Throw in drugs, free love, draft notices, the Vietnam War, and a country deeply divided, and you have one of the most important books of this genre.

This true story is a raw, bold, introspective autobiography where the author openly wrestles with his personal moral dilemma to find meaning and purpose in his life. He calls it his "Mission of Honor."

Wonderful book, insightful and personal

I loved the background and real-life experiences of this book. As a Brit my understanding of the Vietnam War was politically biased, this book brings the reality of the situation to the fore, a young man's perspective, with all the moral dilemmas of the age thrown in. I was captivated. And with such an interesting personal story interwoven into the history, I was hooked. Great book, highly recommend
