Voltaire Six: The Top Tigers
Lieutenant Winston Clark was a helicopter pilot. He is just what he wanted to be and where he wanted to be. When he arrived in Vietnam, he was fresh from the hills of Old Catawba and fully prepared to "bear any burden," as the handsome young president had said.But was he prepared for what awaited him at Les Trungs rubber plantation? Was he prepared for his encounter with the mysterious Frenchman, "Voltaire Six"? Was he prepared for the girl named Genevieve, the girl with the honey-colored hair? And was he prepared for the "68th Buddha" and the climactic and explosive battles of the Tet offensive?Prepared or not, the Top Tigers and the Viet Cong were on a violent collision course and this tour of duty would haunt Lieutenant Clark forever. Voltaire Six is the story of fighting men and women on both sides of the ideological lines rushing down a stormy wind-tunnel of passion, history, and destiny. John Cooke writes with a marvelous sense of character, time, and place. You are there-and you will not forget it.
