In the Vietnam War, 2,197 helicopter pilots and 2,717 crew members were killed. Black Cat 2-1 is the story of one pilot who made it home and the valiant men he served with who risked their lives for the troops on the ground. Bob Ford brings readers into the Huey helicopters he flew on the missions when he and his men dared to protect and rescue.
For readers who served in Vietnam, the story of the Black Cats recreates the danger they survived. For others who know little about this war, Ford invites them into the cockpit to learn firsthand what “Black Cat 2-1” really means. For those whose voices were silenced in that faraway place or who have never told their stories, Ford creates a tribute that reads like a thriller, captures the humor of men at war, and resounds with respect for those who served with honor.
