About the Book
The Belly of the Beast is Book II in the exciting Jungle War series picks up where Chasing Romeo-The Jungle War left off. It is a fast paced, action-packed tale of Company R's LRRP/Ranger (pronounced 'Lurp') five to six man teams in combat deep in enemy lines during the later stages of the Vietnam War.

It is more than just a fictional 'war story' and takes an all too human look at the 18, 19, and 20-year-old soldiers that bore the brunt of the fighting in the ugly and unpopular war, and whose unique service carved out their place in long range reconnaissance missions and largely went unnoticed back home.

Company R, Romeo Company, in the vernacular of the military, has a short term shelf life from Saigon's MAC-V command, and operating out of Camp Mackie, the teams take on some of the bold and deadliest challenges in the jungle war- finding the enemy without being found out in the process.

In The Belly of the Beast- Book II you'll get ready to step out of the helicopter in a grassland clearing deep into the jungle in enemy held territory for your five-day patrol, if the helicopter isn't shot down in tumbling flames by an enemy soldier with a carefully aimed RPG.

You'll join Buck Sergeant Darrell Thomas' five-man team on the Nui Ba Den, Black Virgin Moountain, to locate a hidden North Vietnamese tunnel complex and heavy machine gun positions, and get caught up in the belly of the beast itself.

It is a story of young men who are serving their country while just trying to survive their tours of duty and go home. It is a tale of duty and sacrifice, of deadly sudden encounters in the jungle, and of the sweat dripping, pulse pounding Lurp patrols that will keep you on the edge of your seat as you patrol along with them.

It is a fictional take on real-life Lurp teams during the Vietnam War that'll have you scrambling to find the non-fiction, real-life accounts to better know and understand who they were and how they volunteered for one of the deadliest
jobs in the war.


"A wonderfully written military thriller that is as captivating as it is entertaining."
- Readers Favorites 5-Star Reviews
"Jorgenson's tale of courage and bravery under fire is an ode to the intrepid Reconnaissance patrols that went literally into the belly of the beast. You'll love every minute of it!"
- Sophie Schiller, author of Race to Tibet and The Lost Diary of Alexander Hamilton
