Editorial Reviews

Review

Dan has done a pretty wonderful job with this book. It's full of stuff you [veterans] probably don't know about the life you lived. -- Jim Morris, Special Forces Association Chapter 78 Newsletter

From the Author

I met Cowboy in June 1964 when I was reporting on America's increasing involvement in the Vietnamese civil war. What a man! He enjoyed soldiering more than anyone I had ever known, and he did it with a swagger that -- well, that made me happy to be in his company. I gave him a major role in Incident at Muc Wa, the novel I wrote the following year, and Evan Kim played him with bloodthirsty vigor in the movie version, Go Tell the Spartans.

Cowboy was executed shortly after the book was published, and recently I began to wonder how that had come about. Thanks to the internet, I was able to locate people who had known him, and to piece together his story. Here it is. -- Daniel Ford
