Product Description

Product Description

“Hilarious! A rousing romp!” -Robert Crais, author of The Last Detective

Special Operations missions into North Vietnam during the war took special soldiers with special talents and skills and Army Journalist Mike Butler didn’t have any of them! In this rollicking, absurd adventure, Jorgenson takes you on a behind the lines mission stalking the biggest dragon of them all. Fast paced and wildly entertaining, it’s an action packed take on Murphy’s Law with a helmet.“Jorgenson has captured the ‘flavor’ of the Vietnam War as only an actual participant can. The dialogue, the danger, and the storyline are authentic. A great read! I really enjoyed the story.” -Gary Linderer, author of Phantom Warriors, Six Silent Men (Book Three) and Eyes of the Eagle.

Jorgensons books are always worth reading but this one is a masterpiece. A hapless REMF blackmailed into a dangerous mission into North Vietnam by the CIA, what could go wrong? A great story with an alternate explanation to a key event of the Vietnam war, made all the better by the fact that Kregg is a Vietnam veteran so the details are spot on. You'll never look at Jane Russell the same way again!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Whimsical Read 5 Jan 2011
By David Merlino - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
They say that every great story contains a grain of truth. Kregg Jorgenson has done just that here using history to create his own whimsical view of what could have happened. A great departure from his previous fact based accounts of his experiences in Vietnam it is refreshing to see Kregg accept his past and use it to entertain. Written in the style of language of someone who experienced the times yet brought forward to our generation in a way those of us who were not there can enjoy. Authentic characters meet flat out absurdity in a fun read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indiana Jones meets Full Metal Jacket. 22 April 2012
By Still Serving - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It's the height of the Vietnam War and a journalism student from Seattle, Mike Butler, on a booze-soaked vacation to Europe gets so distracted by the local attractions and entertainment that he fails to register for classes in time to maintain his student deferment and ends up drafted. Sent to Vietnam as an Army Information Specialist, he is bored by his job covering unit softball games and award ceremonies and his adventures in the fleshpots of Saigon and general disregard for the rules soon get him in serious hot water. Then an out appears; going out on and writing glowing press coverage for a mission to kidnap Ho Chi Minh himself will wipe the slate clean.

Specialist Butler is an unlikely and unwilling candidate for a special operations mission and clashes with the Green Berets he is assigned to work with, and whom are convinced he has to be some kind of CIA clandestine operator or he wouldn't be along for a job this important. Tensions between Butler, the "lifer" senior NCOs he works for, and the Green Berets and CIA guys he is on temporary assignment with, provide a lot of amusing scenes as the mission becomes a comedy of errors that ring with authenticity to anyone with wartime military experience.

I recently read and enjoyed Jorgenson's "The Road to Plum Run" and so grabbed the kindle version of "Stalking the Dragon" for airplane reading on a recent trip overseas. The author has a real winner on his hands here. This war story careens between vividly drawn action sequences that belie the author's experiences as a US Army Airborne Ranger combat veteran during the Vietnam War, and laugh-out-loud comedy scenes. Think of it as Indiana Jones meets Full Metal Jacket with a strong dash of ribald GI humor for flavor. This book is a fast-paced and exciting read and would make a fantastic movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun story 12 Nov 2010
By Erik Schmidt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This story was a lot of fun to read. Full of banter between military men that captures the kind of glib gallows humor that any veteran would recognize. For folks not used to it, it offers a neat insight into the military world. I'm a fan of disaster stories and action/adventure and this book really captures the "pucker factor" that keeps you turning page after page.

Kregg Jorgenson's military background and insight into the minds of people in extraordinary circumstances definitely makes this book one for the bookshelves. Two thumbs up!
