Lock n Load, I cannot recommend this book enough, and I aint even finished it yet!. Its a tough no nonesense, unglamourising story of a young chopper pilot, Tom A Johnson's experiance in Vietnam. Anybody interested in the Vietnam conflict, and especialy Helicopter warfare should read this gripping, excellent book. Its a seat of your paints read from beginning to end. You can almost hear that unmistakable whop, whop, of the Huey's rotor blades, and the plodding sound of the M60's belching lead into the jungle below as you breathlessly turn the pages. I rate it up there with Chicken Hawk by, Bob Mason. And Snake Pilot by, Randy Zahn. The Pilots, and crews who flew in these machines had grit, determination, and balls of steel. Some one need's to make a movie dedicated to these guys because their story has not yet been told by the movie industry in America. The American public owe these men the greatest respect! I salute you.
