About the Book
The year is 1968. Wired in-series, trip hammer shocks jolt the country - the capture of the USS Pueblo, Tet, LBJ declines to run, the murders of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy...

In Vietnam, a USAF pilot gets news that, to him, is every bit as jarring as those electrifying events - an airline wants him to interview for a cockpit job. In Dallas, three weeks from now. They have no idea he's in Vietnam, and has fifty-six days and a wake-up before he can leave.

Jack Boland is a Forward Air Controller pilot, part of a small USAF detachment stationed with a U.S. Army brigade, at a base camp in the jungle, seventy-five miles north of Saigon.

Flying small, vulnerable spotter aircraft, the FACs fly over the jungle - and when Brigade grunts get in trouble, bring in jet fighters to get Charlie off their backs.

The story is at times funny, as well as brutal, terrifying, and in the end, tragic. Catch-22 in Vietnam...
