Review:

"It will stun readers" ( Time)

"Compelling... A hypnotic narrative" ( The New York Times)

" Chickenhawk is one bloody, painfully honest and courageous book" (Martin Cruz Smith, author)

"The best book to come out of Vietnam" (John Del Vecchio, author of The 13th Valley)

From the Back Cover:

A stunning book about the right stuff in the wrong war.

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 chance. They sent him to Vietnam where, between August 1965 and July 1966, he flew more than 1,000 assault missions. In Chickenhawk, Robert Mason gives us a devastating bird's eye-view of that war in all its horror, as he experiences the accelerating terror, the increasingly desperate courage of a man 'acting out the role of a hero long after he realises that the conduct of the war is insane,' says the New York Times, 'And we can't stop ourselves from identifying with it.'
