About this title:

Synopsis: ANGLICO: "Super Grunts" of 1st ANGLICO were deployed to all four tactical zones of Vietnam in small mobile fire control teams, providing support to U.S. Army and allied elements. This organization was the last tactical unit to stand down from the war and gained distinction as the only Marines in-country reporting directly to MACV. Working closely with Korean Marines, recounting several actions involving these legendary warriors from the Land of the Morning Calm, this little known but highly effective unit had an impact on the war far greater than their small numbers. Field radio operators and naval gunfire spotters composed the tactical membership of this unit. Both professions were cross trained in each competence, and each in turn was further qualified as tactical air controllers. An airborne capable platoon was established, mandating many ANGLICOs attend jump school and undertake other specialty training in the event they are called on to enter combat by unconventional means. Not being able to predict who they may be called on to support, training was pushed to the level of the most elite forces in the free world. BLUE DRAGONS: Most men of the Blue Dragon Brigade came of age during a war that raged fierce on their own homeland little more than a decade earlier. During a short lived occupation by North Korea, the people of the south endured extremely harsh treatment by would be conquerors. Events of recent history still burned in their hearts and haunted their dreams. They were mostly all children at the time leaving scarcely a man untouched by personal tragedy that could only be forged in a crucible of terror. Many were orphaned and all shared a thirst to settle a score that only those who drink deep from the same cup of dread can truly understand.

About the Author: ABOUT THE AUTHOR Thomas Petri served Sub Unit One, 1stANGLICO as a tactical air controller in Vietnamwhile attached to the Republic of Korea's 2ndMarine Brigade. As very little has ever been bought before the American publicconcerning the extraordinary exploits of this special unit, Mr. Petri has longheld a desire to bring tribute this very small but effective organization thatearned mountains of honors but remains relatively unknown to the people itserved. His research for this bookevolved into a nine year work in progress that brought him in contact withseveral old friends and a few unforgettable Americans he'd never met before ina journey through his youthful past. Recently retired from a satisfying business career with more time on his hands than the law allows, he finally ran outof excuses and much to his surprise, completed this work in less than a year.
