1 Review
No other single force in Vietnam put as much fear into the hearts of the enemy nor gained his respect more then the American snipers. This is a story about one such Marine sniper team, in 1964/65 "Delta-Two- Foxtrot" who helped blazed the trail, gave their best, who hunted the enemy in its own back yard, took out assigned targets without the Viet Cong knowing they were present. Who was feared, hated and yet respected by the Viet Cong. The sniper team was hunted and chased for days and used every trick they knew to get back to base alive. Some teams made it back and still some brave heroes didn't. Semper Fi

Great
human interest story.
I enjoy the ways the author express himself, it's so down to earth that you feel drawn to the book's pages and you find youself right along side of the main character in a great human interest expressions and then you are followering him through the jungles of Vietnam and Cambodia fighting the VietCong and trying to escape from them and make it back to base alive. It has heart stopping action from cover to cover. Highly recommend.
