"After three years stateside in Training Command, Commander Jim "Hog" Hogan, U.S. Navy, has signed on for his second tour of duty in Vietnam, assigned to the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Shiloh off the northern coast and named executive officer of an A-4 Skyhawk attack squadron, VA-262." "VA-262 is in disarray; it's up to Hogan to instill confidence and passion in the men he commands. They must be willing to push their aircraft and themselves to the limit...and beyond. For they are about to undertake a mission unlike any they've faced before, one requiring all the skill and courage they can muster - a mission in which the tiniest miscalculation could have tragic consequences." "Hogan's old friend, Marine aviator Major Dick Averitt, is in-country, Acting Air Liaison Officer for the Twenty-seventh Marines, operating in the highlands of I Corps near the DMZ and Laos - trapped in a little bit of hell on earth called Khe Sanh. The Tet Offensive is underway, and the North Vietnamese have laid siege to Khe Sanh. For Averitt and his fellow Marines, there is but one hope: Operation Niagara. Hogan's A-4 Skyhawks, in tandem with F-4 Phantoms from the U.S.S. Shiloh and combat aircraft from all the services, must lay down a carpet of death just outside the combat base perimeter. It will test the courage and conviction not only of Averitt and Hogan but of every man under their command. Ultimately, the mission will turn on the strength and the endurance of the American brotherhood of arms...."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
