Chickenhawk
Mason, Robert
ISBN: 9780552160988
Corgi Books  1983 
 Soft Cover New book, 399 pages. As a child, Robert Mason dreamed of levitating. As a young man, he dreamed of flying helicopters - and the U.S. Army gave him his first chance.

In this book, Robert Mason gives us a devestating bird's eye-view of that war in all its horror, as he experiences the accelerating terror, the increasingly desperate struggle of man 'acting out the role of a hero long after he realises that the conduct of the war is insane'.  As New

Minefields and Miniskirts : Australian Women and the Vietnam War
McHugh, Siobhan
ISBN: 0734408153
Lothian Books South Melbourne, VIC, Australia 2005 
 Trade Paperback New book, 249 pages. Much has been documented about the young soldiers who went to Vietnam as innocent young boys and returned as hollowed out men. Far less has been written about the women, who mostly went in caring roles rather than to the front line. They encountered adventure and abuse, romance and rape, carnage and cause for celebration, they also discovered strengths they never knew they had. But the experience was just as defining - and haunting - for them. This book tells the real-life stories of 35 women who went to Vietnam as nurses, journalists, entertainers, volunteers, and consular staff, along with those of the women who waited at home for their shattered husbands, fathers, brothers and sons to return.  As New

Naked In Da Nang: A Forward Air Controller In Vietnam
Jackson, Mike; Dixon-Engel, Tara
ISBN: 0760320764
Zenith Press Osceola, Wisconsin, U.S.A. 2004 
 Hard Cover New book, 302 pages. In Vietnam, Forward Air Controllers (FAC's) flew low and slow, searching for signs of an illusive enemy. Often they trolled themselves out as bait for the NVA troops to try to shoot down. When a friendly unit made contact, having a FAC overhead made the ground troops day, because the FAC's controlled the bomb, rocket, and napalm laden "fast movers" - fighter jets and attack aircraft whose ordinance made the difference between life and death. In addition to the perils of enemy fire which ranged from AK-47 shots to .51 caliber michineguns and SA-7 shoulder fired missiles, they had to avoid being blown up in B-52 Arc-Light strike or friendly artilley barages. This was Mike Jacksons life for 366 days. In spring 1972 he hugged the DMZ, fighting back against the massive NVA attack that became known as the Easter Offensive. He was also part of the around the clock team of FAC's who managed the rescue of BAT-21, immortalised in the Gene Hackman - Danny Glover movie of the same name.  As New/As New
