This book is a compilation of stories of the crews of Aeroscouts in Vietnam. Since I was an Aeroscout pilot in 1971, I found it interesting as the book covered lots of different units, locations and tactics, including my own area of operations. The stories were from the perspective of pilots and crewmembers, and dealt with topics that will be recognized by almost anyone who served in Vietnam as a helicopter crewman. The stories ran the gamut from mundane to exceptional, humorous to tragic, and everything in between. I was a Scout Pilot in Vietnam and am one of the Pilots featured in the Book.

During the late 1950s and early 1960s, US Army planners sought to increase the Army’s helicopter force. The Army developed new tactical doctrine using helicopters; the airmobile concept, which was based largely on air cavalry units. Such units were descendants of the US Cavalry, which had operated as light, horse-mounted infantry. Air Cavalry troopers were, in essence, horse soldiers, and helicopters were their steeds. True to their proud and colorful heritage, the Air Cavalry employed tactics used by their forefathers of the Indian wars and embraced the aggressive, offensive-minded culture as they deployed to the grueling conflict in Indochina. Packed with more than 30 action-packed, often hair-raising, first-hand accounts of helicopter scout combat in Vietnam, this book gives you the pilot's view of flying and fighting the Air Cav's revered OH-6 Loach. Besides being an exciting read, these personal recollections by dozens of the fighters themselves provide invaluable, primary source historical coverage of one of America’s epic conflicts as experienced by frontline aeroscouts.

Excellent with very high quality photos from a war long ago. Only complaint was that the book, more like a magazine, was difficult to keep open & read....meaning the backing (spine) was very strong. I couldn't "break" it open to make it easier to turn the pages. Small complaint I know and a Kindle would cure that but not the quality of the photos. That's the only reason for the four stars.

This book caught and held my attention from start to finish. I have always been interested in this aspect of the Vietnam war. Even though I'm about 40 years junior to anyone who had served there, the stories are still exciting and interesting to me. Since I currently work at the OEM of modern day version of these aircraft, I have a good understanding of the air frame structure (which has barely changed since the 1960's) and flight capabilities. And even with this knowledge, I am still amazed at the resiliency of the aircraft and in awe at some of the crashes the people were able to walk away from. I'd recommend this book to anyone wanting to get an immediate immersion into the wold of the Vietnam era aeroscouts.

Great book covering "hunter-killer" teams. I flew them in Nam in 1969-1970, Rich.

I liked the article by Pokey Howard cause I was the FAC that covered for his downed LOH while White 51 picked him up on 10 Jul 1969.

Having served as an aeroscout crew chief with A troop 1st Squadron 9th Cavalry , 1st Cavalry Division in 1969 I can attest to the accuracy and completeness of this book. It is very well put together, and documents the extraordinary accomplishments of the air cavalry in the Vietnam War.
I was a Scout Pilot in Vietnam and am one of the Pilots featured in the Book. As usual, Wayne has done an excellent job of telling the story of a group of pilots that few people knew about and the very dangerous jobs they did! Would recommend it for any history buff or other Vietnam air crew members!
