Summary: Unlike other branches of the military, the Marine Corps required its combat pilots in Vietnam to spend time doing forward air control duty on the ground, with the troops on the front lines. For Sam Brantley it was a harsh and horrific lesson in the realities of jungle combat. The war had always been somewhat distant, flying thousands of feet above the trees and rice paddies. Now, during the summer of the Tet Offensive, the war was in his face and what he saw -- and did -- changed his life forever. Codice inventario libreria ABE_book_usedgood_1555716245
Riassunto: Unlike other branches of the military, the Marine Corps required some of its combat aviators in Vietnam to spend time doing forward air control duty on the ground, with the frontline troops. For Captain Sam Brantley, it was a harsh and horrific lesson in the realities of jungle warfare. The battle had always seemed somewhat distant to him, flying well-armed A4s hundreds of feet above the trees and paddies. But during the spring of the Tet Offensive, Brantley’s war changed. What he would see and do in those seven months on the ground would change his life forever.
In the tradition of Michael Herr’s award-winning "Dispatches," Samuel Brantley breaks new ground in this edgy, irreverent tale of a young man’s evolution from a wide-eyed Marine aviation cadet dedicated to flying and serving his country, to a battle-weary veteran struggling to re-enter civilian life in post-Vietnam America. Along the way, Brantley treats his readers to a parallax view of war and the military—from the air, the ground, and the inside-out.
