Publisher's Summary

Dien Bien Phu. Saigon. Hanoi. In 1954, they were only exotic names from a French campaign halfway around the world. But now American fighting men - proven on the bloody beaches of Normandy and in the minefields of Korea - are summoned to help beat back the guerilla forces of Ho Chi Minh. To some, the “secret” war in Indochina was the depth of folly. To others, like the majors, it pointed to the heights of glory.

A Man’s Soap Opera

I have enjoyed the first 3 books in this series. The story is engaging. The historical references are accurate. It is like a Soap Opera written for men!

A Celebration of Warriors

If you ever served, or respected someone who did, WEB Griffin's books will touch your soul. Fact-based story lines punctuated with incidents that remind you (or teach you) about military values, and how the "brotherhood of arms" lives those values, will keep the pages turning. Before long, you'll want to read all six of this prolific author's series.

More mispronunciation of foreign language words

I speak several languages, French and German among them. This narrator obviously speaks neither. His mispronunciations of words in both are horrendous, and they detract from the story, as bad as they are. To be fair, he doesn't mispronounce English language words often, but he blows even those on very rare occasions. Intonation is fair, but the narrator's mistakes shouldn't make him the focus of the story, as they do quite often.

Still A Good Book Just Not Great Like First Two

I still find this to be a good entertaining story with great narration. The problem is Loyle. While he is a major part of the story, there is no way the real-life the Army would keep him except for his money and political pull. Instead of writing it that believable way instead the writer keeps telling us how he is repeatedly saved because he can do a good job while continually embracing the army. There is no replacement with the hundreds of thousands of other soldiers. If the writer fixed that this would have been as great as the other stories.

Service

A splendid telling of military men and the environment of the story of the earliest days of Army Aviation. An excellent representation of the good and bad of the men who bring forth major changes in the military services.
