9780552124195: Chickenhawk

A stunning book about the right stuff in the wrong war. As a child, Robert Mason dreamed of levitating. As a young man, he dreamed of flying helicopters - and the U.S. Army gave him his chance. They sent him to Vietnam where, between August 1965 and July 1966, he flew more than 1,000 assault missions. In Chickenhawk, Robert Mason gives us a devastating bird's eye-view of that war in all its horror, as he experiences the accelerating terror, the increasingly desperate courage of a man 'acting out the role of a hero long after he realises that the conduct of the war is insane,' says the New York Times, 'And we can't stop ourselves from identifying with it.'

About the Author:

Robert Mason is married and lives in the United States.

From AudioFile:

This conversational and personal history of a helicopter pilot during the Vietnam War has a narrator who is totally into the spirit of the story. Lots of earthy conversations and conflicts provide ample opportunity for Ganser's particular talent--characterization with vitality. However, he does not annoy with overacting, and he comfortably switches to informative prose. Lots of technical details about these "air ships" and their place in 1960s' warfare are mixed in, and the combination of styles creates the narrative drive of this military memoir. The performance ofChickenhawk, bringing together men and war, is so frank in places that one often feels vicarious involvement.

Book Description Random House UK, 1984. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 12.8 x 19.9 cm. CHICKENHAWK contains the most vivid, astoundingly detailed descriptions of flying ever written. It is a devasting account of men at war, of courage and cowardice, boredom and exhilaration, lasting friendship and sudden death. Roberts Mason's war was supposed to bring the Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese to their knees in short order. That it didn't is now part of history and for men like Robert Mason, the futility, the senseless destruction it caused to an ancient society, left scars that will never heal. CHICKENHAWK is not a book for weak stomachs, but its powerful message will stay in the memory long after the last page is turned. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # MM-43004847
