The authors gather the perspectives shared by their characters into a delicately counterbalanced story that will both entertain and educate readers on the reality of war: with every thrilling victory comes loss. Men, women, soldiers, civilians, journalists, and politicians are all caught in the same chaos. The sum of their experiences brings an indistinct picture of Vietnam into brilliant focus. Escape from Saigon is intensely human, thoroughly compelling, and true to history.
Sylvia Gaezenzle -- American Grit
This historically accurate novel follows the lives of NBS-TV's first Vietnamese-American correspondent and the hard-hitting Sam Esposito of The Washington Legend whose news reports infuriated Richard Nixon, an American businessman who risks his life to smuggle out his employees; an American soldier searching for his wife's relatives, and a French expatriate barkeep hanging on the last vestiges of colonialism, along with US diplomats, including the disillusioned Ambassador Graham Martin, CIA operatives and double agents.
The novel is exceptional in authenticity. Its portrait of city in extremis is chilling and completely engrossing. It will take many back and some forward forward to new foreign involvements.”--Llewellyn King, The White House Chronicle
"Michael Morris and Dick Pirozzolo have created a mirror image of the Vietnam era with the style and authority of Tom Clancy, accurately depicting the final heartbreaking weeks of the decades long conflict. Lovers of intrigue, history buffs, or anyone in search of an excellent action read that accurately depicts the journalists who dedicated their lives to covering the Vietnam War will love this book."--Skip Yetter, author of
Rilertown: A Jake Ketcher Novel
Set during the final days of the Vietnam War, Escape From Saigon brings to life the war-torn lives of the men and women, soldiers and civilians alike trapped in the capital city, each trying to escape the fall of Saigon before it engulfs them all. A vivid, unvarnished vision."--Winston Groom, author of Better Times Than These and Forest Gump
Escape from Saigon deftly weaves literary fiction rife with romance and intrigue, and historic fact, all the while providing a reminder of how the same foreign policy blunders in Vietnam were repeated in Afghanistan and Iraq."--Carmen Gentile, war correspondent in Afghanistan and Iraq for Esquire and TIME, the author of Kissed by the Taliban.
"The irony of war is that it simultaneously brings out the best and the worst of humanity. Escape from Saigon reminds us all the cost of every victory, as well as the gain from every loss. The Vietnam war produced some of the best pilots in the world because their lives, as well as the soldiers on the ground, depended on them to get it right on the first try. This story helps make the connection between what was happening in the air with the result of their efforts on the ground...both good and bad." -- Erika Armstrong, ATP, aviation professor, and author of A Chick in the Cockpit
From the Author
When Michael Morris and I embarked on "Escape from Saigon - a Novel," I knew I would be stretching my historical research skills and creative muscles to write this debut novel, but I never realized that when I crawled down the rabbit hole and wandered into the pivotal event in my life -- indeed the lives of most of my generation -- that it would be such an emotional journey.
