Editorial Reviews


"All of Marc Liebman's books are superb and hard to put down once you start to read them, but Cherubs 2 is his finest to date! I could not put it down and read it cover to cover at one sitting! The book takes the reader back to the early 1970's and takes guys like me right back to our youthful combat days flying over North Viet Nam....Those of us who flew combat over North/South Viet Nam knew we stood a 50-50 chance of being picked up if bagged due to the sheer guts of the Big Mother crews! Cherubs 2 is a fast paced, thrilling, accurate novel that you will not be able to put down! It sits in my library right next to Clancy's novels! -- W.W. "Bear" Pickavance, Jr., Rear Admiral (ret) (review refers to an earlier edition)

"...The key to good fiction is character development, no easy feat with this novel's large cast of characters including air crewmen, SEAL team members, Russian and Chinese officials, CINPac and top officials at the Pentagon, and Josh Haman's love interest-just to name a few. This book also includes the historical specifications on the operating Naval ships in the region and their aircraft rosters complete with call signs, during the time frame of the book. Cherubs 2 is a page turner and not easy to put down." -- John PennyThe Aviator, Magazine of the Vietnam Helicopter Pilot's Association (review refers to an earlier edition)

"This is a fast-paced novel about a junior officer helicopter pilot during the Vietnam War. With an engaging plot, realistic flying scenes, and a number of sub plots that keeps things interesting, the latest in the Josh Haman series will make unrestricted naval aviators feel as if they are right there in the helicopter...Any helicopter pilot or crewman will find this book realistic and absorbing and will not want to put it down. Naval veterans of Vietnam will recognize the locations, ships, aircraft and the frustrating progress of the war in Southeast Asia. I highly recommend this thriller to all hands." Cmdr. (ret) John Ball, USN, Rotor Review, Winter 2016. (review refers to an earlier edition)

From the Author

A little known and forgotten incident can be the beginnings of a wonderful plot...
After Big Mother 40 was published, a close friend of mine asked why don't I write a story based on an incident that happened in Vietnam.  On the flight, they were in transit from one ship to another when a beeper came on the air, indicating that a pilot had ejected from a jet.

My friend, a junior co-pilot looked at the bearing to the downed pilot and listening to the radio calls, determined that they were the closest rescue asset. He suggested strongly to his aircraft commander that they go make the pick-up.  The aircraft commander said if they need us, they'll ask.  He made several excuses as to why they could not attempt the rescue.  None were really valid.  This dialog went on several times over the intercom and the aircraft commander told my friend to drop the subject.

I'd forgotten all about the story until my friend mentioned it.  So, I noodled around on it for awhile and voilà, out popped Cherubs 2.

Cherubs 2 is a novel about the continuum between being a coward and stupidly brave and one about a young officer learning how to be a leader.  Most of us would never want to have the C, as in cowardice or coward associated with our names.  The book is also a story about love and the tragedy that was taking place in Laos as well as the United States.  

The book takes place in 1970 and the historical context driving part of the plot is the disagreement between the U.S. Air Force and the Navy on how many surface to air missiles are coming into North Vietnam.  The Air Force believes they are coming in from the People's Republic of China despite not having any evidence to support their hypothesis.

To help keep the book in the context of the time the events were happening, there are passages based on real incidents when men in uniform are accosted by anti-war protestors along with other issues military leaders were dealing with in a very difficult time for our country.
