Book Description

Pak Six is more than just an exciting story of one man’s experience as a fighter pilot during the Vietnam War. G.I. Basel’s thrilling account of the largest bombing campaign since World War II, Operation Rolling Thunder, is as relevant today as it was in the 1960’s. It is truly a story for the ages as he describes combat missions that were made based on ridiculous rules of engagement, confusion in the chain of command, and worse — decisions made for political expediency. There are lessons to be learned, if only they would be heeded. Basel, like his fellow pilots, was a humble hero. A warrior in an amazing celestial battle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Downtown April 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading this book. The author has you right there in the cockpit during those missions in Route Pak 6 and “downtown”. It was well written and gives the reader insight of the humor, pain, suffering and sadness that is part of war. I couldn’t put the book down, waiting to see what the next mission involved. His encounters with the enemy included shooting down a MIG, not an attack pilot’s specialty. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know what it was like to fly combat over North Vietnam.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read this forgotten chapter of our history. January 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a must read for those interested in the Viet Nam War. The author Lt Col Basel, with editing by Patzi Gil and illustrator Lou Drendel bring you a first person account of what it was like to fly combat missions in support of the US mission in Viet Nam.

Can't wait for the movie, but this book is so well written that it creates a visual of what it was like to be in that pilots seat flying a Thunderchief on combat missions.

Again, this is must read for Vets, historians, and political leaders !

GI does a great job of putting you right there in the Thud's cockpit the way it was at the time and place. He does not sugar coat it or make it worse than it was. You get the real view from his seat. I enjoyed the read. You will also.

I couldn't put this book down and when I did all I could do is think about it . I read it in three days. This book is worth the investment. I promise you, you will be drawn into the cockpit, be part of the squadron as they relax and talk about the days mission. Thank you for your service!
