Publisher's Summary

Based on the true stories of the two US Navy Seals operating behind enemy lines in Vietnam with the super top-secret unit MACV-SOG (Military Assistance Command Vietnam, Special Operations Group)

US Navy Seal Lieutenant Tom Norris, on three separate occasions over a four-day period, with no sleep, went behind enemy lines to rescue two downed air force pilots. Using stealth tactics, he was able to get though or around hundreds of North Vietnamese to rescue one pilot. The second pilot - hungry, thirsty, and having lost 40 pounds - was disoriented and unable to help in his rescue. Norris, with the help of one Vietnamese Seal, was able to safely bring the pilot back inside US lines.

Six months later, US Navy Seal Mike Thornton was on a top-secret mission with Lieutenant Norris behind enemy lines. Chinese junks dropped them off 10 miles north of their target. After swimming to shore, the team conducted a recon mission but was discovered the following morning by North Vietnamese. Fighting their way to the South China Sea, they began swimming out to sea. All were wounded, but Thornton, himself wounded and using a breast stroke, was able to tow or push the whole team out to sea until they were rescued.

This was the first time in the history of the Medal of Honor that one recipient got the medal for rescuing another recipient - and each was able to witness the other's ceremonies.

For the love of country, comrades, and God

If this story of unselfish sacrifice and duty doesn't make you proud to be an American get out and don't return.

Amazing Story, Read by a True Veteran.

I enjoyed the author reading his own book. To me, it gave me a real Feel of the book, A feel for the story, and of the author. It's too easy to view books of the past with present tense sounds and images. Keith reading the book puts it back into the time frame. (no offense Keith!)

Great stories about great men!

This was a great book to listen to. Very detailed account about the unbelievable exploits of some of the bravest individuals who have ever been to war. I never tire of hearing about these brave and selfless heroes.

True stories of two great men and heroic action

Kieth does a great job of narrating the stories of two amazing men who inspire and awe for their bravery and selflessness in the face of extreme peril. MACV-SOG and their SEALs operate in Vietnam in this action packed true story, I was nervous for them, had to pause at times and take in the shear mind numbing emotions of their situations. This is a straight up style, blow by blow until you learn how it all turns out for these men and their teammates. Must read. Only wish Keith’s first book was available in Audible (not just CD). Thank you Kieth for representing these hero’s’ stories so well!

A proud read.

I loved the book. I a disabled U.S. Navy Veteran (Vietnam Era). I understand more and more about what the Vietnam War was about and like from each book or movie or documentary I watch. I'm am proud to met all Vietnam vets and never miss an opportunity to thank them for their service. God bless each and everyone of them.
