In this searingly realistic novel, Gerry Carroll, one of the most decorated naval aviators since Vietnam, brings us the dramatic story of attack bomber pilots and helicopter pilots flying combat Search and Rescue (SAR) in the war against North Vietnam. Lt. Mike Santy flies attack bombers over the Gulf of Tonkin, catapulting from the deck of the carrier Concord. He is determined to serve heroically despite a fierce clash of wills with his squadron commanding officer. His closest friend is Lt. Tim Boyle, who flies a SAR helicopter and uses his considerable skills to go in fast and low, rescuing downed pilots. Neither Boyle nor Santy can foresee the harrowing mission ahead. When an attack staged across the entire width of North Vietnam requires a SAR operation, Boyle's rescue helicopter crashes in mountainous "Indian country" - and Mike Santy flies in, circling overhead, desperately hoping his best friend is still alive. Together, both men will face the ultimate test of endurance and courage - on the ground in North Vietnam.

From the Inside Flap:

The BookcassetteŽ format is a special recording technique developed as a means of condensing the full, unabridged audio text of a book to record it on fewer tapes. In order to listen to these tapes, you will need a cassette player with balance control to adjust left/right speaker output. Special adaptors to allow these tapes to be played on any cassette player are available through the publisher or some US retail electronics stores.

From AudioFile:

Search and Rescue (SAR) missions by bomber and helicopter pilots over the Gulf of Tonkin in the Vietnam War are the focus of this realistic novel. While an introduction by Tom Clancy adds to the credibility of author Gerry Carroll, only a man with knowledge and combat experience could tell such a story with clarity and emotion. The narrator has a range of voices to simulate the staccato style of conversation between ship personnel and pilots. And when the task force commander makes some remarks at the funeral service of a fallen flyer, the narrator sensitively captures the emotion and maturity of his rough voice. W.S.R.
