The Ravens by Christopher Robbins 495 Baht

The Ravens by Christopher Robbins
Pilots of the Secret War in Laos
From the Author of "Air America"

A Tale of Undeniable Heroism and Real-Life Adventure and Tragedy

A Thriller-War Adventure with One Significant Difference: Everything that Robbins Reports Actually Happened.

Tom Clancy, "A book of outstanding integrity. Here are the heroes no one ever told you about."

Chicago Sun-Times, "They were the best and brightest, the craziest and the bravest ... Robbins has broken through great secrecy to get the story ... An amazing piece of work."

Arizona Daily Star, "The Ravens has action that pumps up the adrenaline ... Christopher Robbins book swaggers with descriptions of bravado and derring-do."

Officially the war in Laos did not exist. Both North Vietnam and the USA denied they had troops there. In fact, thousands of North Vietnamese were invading the country and pouring down the Ho Chi Minh Trail on their way to the South, and the Americans were fighting a vigorous war against them from the air, and on the ground via the CIA-led Meo (Hmong) tribesmen.

The Ravens were the American pilots, all volunteers, who flew through heavy groundfire to identify targets and call in air-strikes. Their mission was top secret. They wore no uniform and carried no identification. Mavericks to a man, they accepted the murderous casualty rates in return for a life of unrestricted flying and fighting. They did their job with extraordinary skill and crazy courage, and with a zany humor all of their own. This is their story ...
