Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
I have been trying to read all of "WEB Griffin's" military fiction written under his real name.

This was almost exactly like Helicopter Pilot. Hero gets his undergrad and instead of getting into med school (grades too low) he gets drafted. Ends up in infantry basic, and is given the chance to try out for warrant helo school. As a side plot line, he is anti-killing.

He ends up doing well, and gets to Vietnam and the book briefly tracks through his first little while flying med-evac.

There is also a girl-friend who is anti-war, but the action there is not very well fleshed out.

I would have liked to have seen the hero finish his tour.
