"This is our story, told some twenty to thirty years later, but as chilling and touching to us who were there as if it took place yesterday." (Marine Corps Aviation Association) "The detailed history of the Marine helicopter pilot has never been written in such a hard, cold-steel, factual way as this great book reveals." (Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association)
