Product Description

From the Inside Flap

In the summer of 1967, the good old days were ending for the hard-core 1st Brigade LRRPs of the 101st Airborne Division, perhaps the finest maneuver element of its size in the history of the United States Army. It was a bitter pill. After working on their own in Vietnam for more than two years, the Brigade LRRPs were ordered to join forces with the division once again.
But even as these formidable hunters and killers were themselves swallowed up by the Screaming Eagles' Division LRPs to eventually become F Co., 58th Infantry, they continued the deadly, daring LRRP tradition. From saturation patrols along the Laotian border to near-suicide missions and compromised positions in the always dangerous A Shau valley, the F/58th unflinchingly faced death every day and became one of the most highly decorated companies in the history of the 101st.

About the Author

Kenn Miller is a former LRRP and 101st Ranger veteran. He is author of the successful and well-received novel Tiger: The LURP Dog. He lives in Southern California.

This is my favourite of the great 6 Silent Men Lurp trilogy. It's a bit of a slow start, but once you're in, you're really in. Miller has a vivid, gleeful wit, and reading this in the early hours i was many a time seized with laughter. His account of an unfortunate Lurp's encounter with an enraged water buffalo is especially amusing, and exemplifies Miller's peculiar humour - his ability to find mirth in the weirdest and darkest circumstances.
Highly recommended.

Talks about the time period of the absorption of the 1st Brigade LRRPs back into the 101st, then moving under the 2/17 Cav., and eventually to the early beginning of being designated Airborne Rangers, 75th infantry... Slow to start, but eventually picks up, with lots of interesting and moving stories included. Really gives insight into how Lurps did and should do their work. This is my first book of the series so I can't compare it yet to the other two... It's sad to hear that occasionally elite or specially-trained units like the Lurps get routinely misappropriated and misused, and sometimes mistreated by certain superior officers who seem to know nothing of how they operate and what they do. It seems that these certain individuals only know how to endanger their lives by inexperienced deployment, or crush their morale by not deploying them at all. I believe the military should take a serious look at making mandatory understanding of specialized and elite units a requirement before any officer is allowed to ascend to a possible command position that could only hurt and damage all the hard work and training that these soldiers put themselves through. Hell, they should even make reading books like this one mandatory. Reading this book reminded me of all the scout/sniper stories I have read that showed that sometimes they were occasionally misused and mistreated also... why train these elite soldiers if you're going to do this to them?!

Every book in this series is an excellent read. The Authors take you behind the lines in Vietnam. These brave young men fought and died up close and personal as they say. Cant recommend these books enough.

Kenn Miller writes a compelling and vivid account of the 101st LRRPs journey from the early creation to the verge of ebing recognised as "Rangers" and joining the 75th Infantry designation. An excellent book which is well worth reading - As with all books if you want a book buy a book, i don't agree with giving the book a rubbish review because the kindle translation was poor. If you fancy reading up on the forgotten heroes of this conflict then get Millers books and check out the others in the series aswell, you won't be disappointed.

Of all the combat writers Miller is the best. He got most of us to start writing. I knew Miller. I lived with him day and night on a Ranger team in Vietnam. He was one of the "old Foul Dudes" the 101st ariborne Division Lrrps. He was smart back them. He got me out of a mess when I let my big mouth get me in trouble with another Lrrp whom I smacked upside the head. The guy took a punch at Miller and that was it. By the time they pulled Miller off him he was a mess. Miller had a piece of the guys ear in his mouth and had a chunck of his fist. Later, they were drinking beer together at the Ranger Lounge. Miller gives an accurate account of the daily missions and dangers the Lrrps/Rangers faced. Good work. Larry Chambers

I brought the trilogy of these books for my Kindle; The first book was excellent and I was looking forward to this next instalment. Unfortunately, what ruined a good book was that those nice people at Amazon obviously never proof read the text before selling it.
The book is littered with errors. half of the word "The" used in the book comes out as "Die", I don't really want to read English and German in the same book. Some of the other spelling errors in the book make my five year old son look like an English Language genius and it's not just the odd word, the whole book is full of them, some of the passages of text you have to read twice just to work out what a certain word is. It ruins what otherwise is a great book.

If you want to buy this book, avoid the Kindle version like the plague.

I am pleased to say that the Kindle edition has now been edited and is now a brilliant read.
