    Inhaltsangabe

    In the summer of 1967, Mark Garrison had dropped out of college at Southern Illinois University just before entering his third year. He had run out of money and had to work for a while. These were the days before the lottery and the draft soon came calling. In order to somewhat control his own future, he enlisted in the US Army's helicopter flight school program. Little did he know that this adventure would be the most profound experience of his life.

    Garrison flew hundreds of missions for the 119th AHC, stationed in the Central Highlands at Camp Holloway in Pleiku, Vietnam. He was awarded 25 Air Medals, four campaign Bronze Stars, and The Distinguished Flying Cross, among numerous other awards. His narrative takes you through the whole process, from basic training, flight school, flying combat in Vietnam, and his return to the United States. His description includes many incidents in combat flight, including being hit by rocket propelled grenades and being on fire in the air, over hundreds if not thousands of enemy troops. But this is not all. He elaborates on the daily lives, emotions, and nuances of the pilots and what they considered their mission to be.

    Guts 'N Gunships is a must listen if you are to have a realistic understanding of what flying helicopters in Vietnam combat was all about.

    Great book - sehr gutes Buch!

    This is a great view into how its like to fly a helicopter in Nam. It is well red and nicely told. I really recommend it as one of the really better books which are telling a story of that time.
    Ich habe dieses Buch als deutscher gehört und kann es nur empfehlen, auch für leite die der englischen Sprache noch nicht all zu mächtig sind.

    Extraordinary audiobook

    If you are looking for heroic war Stories, this is not the audiobook for you. It is rather the Personal Story of UH-1C Pilot in Vietnam. It keeps you smiling at some points, but it is mostly about the live changing experiences of the author, and these aren‘t of a funny nature!
    There is the real recording of a Radio call from the author inserted in this audiobook. It deserves 5 Stars just for this exceptional detail!
