Product Description

Product Description

MORE GRIPPING, NO-HOLDS-BARRED LRRP ACCOUNTS
FROM THE FRONT LINES

During the Vietnam War, few combat operations were more dangerous than LRRP/Ranger missions. Vastly outnumbered, the patrols faced overwhelming odds as they fought to carry out their missions, from gathering intelligence, acting as hunter/killer teams, or engaging in infamous “Parakeet” flights– actions in which teams were dropped into enemy areas and expected to “develop” the situation.

PHANTOM WARRIORS II presents heart-pounding, edge-of-your-seat stories from individuals and teams. These elite warriors relive sudden deadly firefights, prolonged gun battles with large enemy forces, desperate attempts to help fallen comrades, and the sheer hell of bloody, no-quarter combat. The LRRP accounts here are a testament to the courage, guts, daring, and sacrifice of the men who willingly faced death every day of their lives in Vietnam.


From the Paperback edition.

Great book!
I prefer reading books from the soldiers point of view. That way it is not blinded by Politics and biased views based on 'good vs bad'.
This is just what the solider experienced, from his view.
These guys were, and still are, incredible !

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book - highly recommended 5 Aug 2005
By Chris Gordon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Excellent book, and excellent content. (...)

Highly readable book, it was the 1st in the series I read, and I proceeded to read all of Mr Linderer's books and those written by the other LRRPs who served with the 101st in Vietnam!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth reading!!! 3 Jun 2001
By kregg Jorgenson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Gary Linderer's Phantom Warriors II is a stirring tribute to the LRP/ Rangers of the Vietnam war with stories and accounts from soldiers who had served with these remarkable units. More than this it also takes the reader along on the harrowing patrols and points out page by page another proud legacy of the US Army's 75th Rangers. Linderer has done more than anyone I know to help tell the stories of the LRP/Rangers in Vietnam and should be applauded for his efforts. Buy this book. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Stuff 24 Mar 2002
By Dr. Charles Donaldson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The stories in this book had to come from the real stuff. Only LRRPs/Rangers who had been there could tell these stories. Not Rambo stuff but brave young men doing special operations. A good eye opener.

4.0 out of 5 stars more dictating contact 25 July 2001
By richard kunkel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Once again Gary Linderer has written an interesting, edge of your seat account of small unit contact during the United States' Vietnam involvement. The lively and exciting text depicts an ,as if you were there, account of small unit operations and the ability of which to overpower and frustrate the enemies' guerilla tactics. The firefights are intense and the action is compelling. This work is a must read for small unit action fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ain't No Marcinko 3 Jan 2002
By J. Murray - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Mr Gary Linderer tells you how teamwork really pays off. He isn't one of these writers who can do everything himself, as some claim they can. The greatest glory and honor come from helping one another achieve the best of themselves.
