Description

Marine Corps helicopter crews and infantrymen found little glory waiting for them in faraway Vietnam. Instead, they found themselves battling tenacious Sino-Soviet pawns in a savage daily struggle for survival.

Former Marine HMM-265 helicopter pilot Marion Sturkey combines fascinating detail with grim realism in this eloquent saga of Marines at war. Weaving actual military records together with personal accounts from the helicopter crews, he breathes life into the daily struggle of the soldier.

Step through this unique looking-glass into the volatile crucible of combat in Vietnam. Taste the danger and fear, the madness and passion, and experience the love and brotherhood shared by the pilots and aircrewmen of the Bonnie-Sue.

Their survival became their victory.
