    Forward Air Controllers had one of the most important jobs in Vietnam They made sure that troops got airpower delivered exactly where they needed it and not off in the jungle or on friendly positions With a load of smoke rockets and a great radio network FACs coordinated the delicate dance of getting bombs on targetHarrison has a clean style that captures the chaos and complexity of his job while providing enough context to follo

Forward air controllers fought a tension filled three dimensional war in Vietnam uite lite. An earnest and engrossing account of Mr Harrison s experience as a FAC pilot of the OV 10 Bronco in Vietnam and Cambodia He directs fighters in the air and provides close air support to the soldiers on the ground engaging in slower speed turboprop flight and tight aerobatics that fill a critical operational niche between slow yet maneuverable helicopters and super fast jets This book does not get philosophical so if you re looking for an investigation of the morality of combat the Vietnam War or secret special operations this isn t it But if you want to understand this little noted portion of history told well and glossing over little either in heroism or fear pride or regret comradeship and sullenness this is it If you re familiar with the common literature and film from infantry and helicopter operations this will both enrich your understanding and take you someplace new I won t leave spoilers for the events at the end of the book but the fast starting opening does not disappoint toward the finish I see that Mr Harrison has also written some fiction so I m going to check out The Delta It would be good to see his work make it into a feature film And I m going to keep an eye out for the OV 10 Bronco in museums Maybe I ll even get to Europe to see the contemporary airshow based OV 10 Bronco Demo Team in action
