Synopsis: This artfully crafted saga depicts in vivid detail, the arduous journey of a young, impressionable patriot yearning to fulfill his destiny in the turmoil of the 1960's. The author draws you close to him as he encounters stiff challenges to his basic values, his character, as well as his faith in his fellow man. You'll taste the bitter prop blast as you stand in the open door beside him, holding your breath while he soars through the icy sky to the mountainous drop zone below. Discover the true nature of this Nation's most valiant fighting men as he progressively learns what it takes to lead Green Berets into battle. Share the distinct smell of death while he clutches on to the remnants of his tattered soul, constantly violated while he processes the tragedy of life unfolding before him. Witness the sheer resolve he and his men display in their commitment to their country, despite the disrespect and utter contempt shown to them by their own countrymen. This factual rendering allows you to eavesdrop on the innermost workings of a Special Forces A-Team as they train and ultimately prepare for battle. You'll be sprinting with a SOG Recon Team as they desperately work to elude the hordes of NVA soldiers, feeling the impact of explosions and the crackling of rifle fire along the way. This read will provide you with a renewed appreciation of what men endure when they make the commitment to defend their country and their way of life; despite the intimate danger and life-long consequences that accompany that decision.             
 

From the Inside Flap: "At 21 years of age, Michael O'Shea was the youngest Captain to command a Special Forces A-Team in Vietnam.  His first assignment set the tone for what would prove to be a deadly tour of duty. Colonel "Iron Mike" Healy sends O'Shea down to an isolated location near the Cambodian border region of Southern Vietnam.  He's met with a failed command structure, corrupt Vietnamese Special Forces counterparts, and renegade Vietnamese troops who would rather run than fight.  He quickly learns how to work through and around the system, relying on the experience of his senior NCOs to whip the camp back into fighting shape.  Captain O'Shea converted a potential disaster into a solid operation.  With their natural intuition of finding and killing the enemy, his men terrorized and eliminated Vietcong's supply routes. The young Captain assembled a cadre of trusted and capable Cambodian assassins and ventured into the thick, steamy swampland to set up night ambushes along the infiltration routes; a tactic that soon provided the camp with the highest kill ratio from the end of the Ho Chi Minh trail to Saigon.  A soldier was once quoted as saying, 'You don't become a Special Forces soldier...you're born one'."
Major George W. Petrie, Jr., U.S. Army Special Forces, (Ret) - Distinguished Member of the Regiment.  Assault team leader, Blue Boy 3, Son Tay Prison Raid.
