FIREFIGHT: A Viet Nam War Novel

by

When a helicopter crash-lands deep in the Boi Loi Woods, Lieutenant Carr’s platoon must rush to the rescue. A swamp and mechanical problems force Carr and his platoon sergeant to send their armored personnel carriers back to the base camp and proceed on foot, hounded by Viet Cong and racing against the fall of night. They find the co-pilot dead and the pilot severely injured, but the others on board have survived, and the passengers prove difficult. Carr must deal with an obnoxious colonel, a demanding nurse, and three Japanese girls who are USO entertainers. Hunted by the enemy and unsure of their location, this motley group must survive the long rainy night in a series of running firefights until they can be rescued at dawn. Throw in a fake Viet Cong, a lost temple, and a mysterious monk, and things get even more bizarre. Intense action, constant danger, and unexpected humor make this a book you can’t put down.
