Charlie Mike may be the greatest war to story to come out of Vietnam. There is something for everyone in Leonard Scott's novel. There's violence and compassion, gore and tenderness, arrogance and humility, friend and foe. -Columbus Ledger Enquirer.

The author, Leonard B. Scott, has done a good job of writing a war novel which reads like a military thriller. There is action and suspense which will keep you turning the pages. But, more than that I appreciate how the author had portrayed the fighters from both sides – there were heroes on both sides, they had their fears, dreams, hopes and faced immense danger while discharging their duty or trying to protect their friends.

If war may be said to bring out the worst in governments, it frequently brings out the best in people. This is a novel about some of the very best. Some led. Some followed. Some died in the great Vietnam war novel, CHARLIE MIKE.

One of the best Vietnam War novels I have read. Love the story line, the characters, the war madness and the love stories intertwined. The story will keep your interest for each and every page. It does not wear down. It will bring laughs, tears, and in the case of us who served pride in those who served with us. Having served as a Marine infantry nco and later officer I thoroughly enjoyed the book and salute the author for a very fine novel and in writing it honored the Army Rangers whom I have always respectedl. I was going to read the other nover of war he wrote but thought I would wait since I think its price on Kindle is set too high. He should consider bringing the price down 50% and he will make the money in volume of sales I predict.

I don't know how I've overlooked this fantastic novel all this time! The author's prose took me back to the jungles of Vietnam. I was so fixated by the story that when I stopped for a break, I was momentarily disoriented, surprised to find myself sitting in my favorite chair back home. It's that realistic!

"Charlie Mike" is a riveting tome and difficult to set aside. Readers are introduced to well-rounded likable characters, making it difficult to choose a single character to care about. A second story line story follows the exploits of a group of North Vietnamese soldiers, offering readers an opportunity to get into the head of the enemy and learn something about their strategy, tactics, and secrets. Both sides will clash time and time again. Many will die on both sides, tears will fall, prayers said and reinforcements arrive before doing it all over again.

There is something for everyone in "Charlie Mike": a love interest between two of the Rangers and a couple Donut Dollies as well as a Ranger officer and the nurse who took care of him after he was wounded and became famous for landing the aircraft, Officers more concerned about public opinion than the lives of their own men, Con artists and money-making schemes and of the brotherhood shared by men who continually place themselves at risk. Taking a line from the Big & Rich song - The 8th of November - "Greater love hath no man than to lay down his life for his
brother".

Highly recommended! I have just downloaded another of of the author's Vietnam War books and hope it is just as good as this one. Thank you Leonard B. Scott for an entertaining read! Also, thank you for your service and Welcome Home! Charlie Mike, sir!

Cherries - A Vietnam War Novel

Col. Scott was 1st Lt. Scott (ABN RNGR) when I met him and was my platoon leader from 11/20/69 - 3/15/70. I had the honor to serve as his squad leader, and acting platoon sgt, when needed, of 1st Squad, 2nd Platoon, Alpha Co., 2nd Bn/503d Inf, 173d Abn Bde. I have enjoyed all of his books and rate them as very well written, but this is my favorite. It would make an excellent movie. I have gifted copies of Charlie Mike to many people over the years and continue to do so, donating many to various VA's and VFW's, with the message to enjoy and always Charlie Mike (Continue Mission) through life. Many thanks to Col. Scott for his passion as a top notch writer, and military leader.... Dan Reed

I was there in 65. Full of snafu,s and bs, Not the book but the war. But those of us who, they say survived, will never forget those who didn't. I am now 71 years, I have been old since 65. Read this book and know how it really was. When someone asks , how it was, I say "a walk in the park". It wasn't. Read tjhis book.

The author speaks authoritatively about the Vietnam war. His perspective is one that can only be given by someone who has served in an elite unit as the Army Rangers.
This novel takes the reader into the heart of the Army Rangers, and the comradery that is formed between brothers during training and combat. I recommend this novel to all who want a taste of what life is like for an elite soldier.

Charlie Mike makes the Vietnam Nam soldier's experience more real for those who weren't there. It sheds an understanding, revealing light on the fear, the honor, the courage, valor, brotherhood, commitment, pain and personal cost of war.

The story is obviously told, as it only could be, by one who lived it.

And while it isn't even close to being fully comprehensive, it is a story every living American should know.

I read this when I was in high school and loved it. Years later, as I toed the line at Airborne School, I found out that COL Scott had only recently retired and that he'd been in command of the Airborne school only a few years shy of my arrival. The story he wrote and the war he fought in have been markedly different than the one I've experienced over the past 20 odd years. But the people in the story, and spirit are all the same.
War frequently brings out the best in those who fight it. This was especially true for the Army's Airborne Rangers.This novel is about that special group of soldiers. This was a wonderful novel that was uplifting, wonderful but also sad and tragic. The Army Rangers fought with grit and unbelievable sacrifice for their brothers in arms. Their motto was Charlie Mike. The meaning of which is Continue the Mission.
