It's very informative, the narrative pacing is consistent, and the voice of the young man who matures to be a great Huey pilot is very authentic. The sense of place is extremely strong and the author gives the reader the right amount of detail to feel emotionally involved without being overcome by a lot of useless trivia.
With a good editor's help the prose could have been a bit more polished, but after reflection, it would have interfered with getting close to the main character.
A great airplane read, a great arm chair read, and a very strong narrative of what it was really like to pilot a helicopter in the war.
I won't forget this book for a long time.

Excellent narrative. The book gives you a great insight into the day to operations, highs and lows of a serviceman in a war zone. Anyone who is interested in understanding the human mind in conflict needs to read the book.
Although I did not serve in Vietnam, I did fight in Desert Storm so I have some experience of an operational environment.
The book highlight the need for good leadership, great colleagues and friends, mutual support from everyone to serve a common goal.
Thanks and I look forward to hearing about your experience after Vietnam and into Desert Storm.
Keep up the good work.
