Heath redresses the balance with his first novel. I read Layne's next book The Deep Blue and was just as taken with it as I was with the first.

Heath redresses the balance with his first novel. In his initial tour in 1969 Army Warrant Officer (CW2) Billy Roark flew slicks-transport helicopters-around the DMZ and the ill-omened A Shau Valley. In 1971 he returns as a scout pilot in the air cavalry to meet a destiny as uncanny as it is appropriate. I have since looked for more books from Mr. Heath but have not found any. I have checked with my hometown resources to attempt to discover what happened to him and can find no information. I even ask my mother and if she does not know, then there is nothing to know.

Heath "blends the real and the surreal in compelling images of a form of war that was new but not unique," said P.

Heath "blends the real and the surreal in compelling images of a form of war that was new but not unique," said PW. Roark's story "can claim a place alongside such memoirs as Billy Bishop's Winged Warfare and Ira Jones's Tiger Squadron. It wasn't until I was comparing notes with one of other pilots last year that I realized that the M. CW3) Heath I crewed for in Company B, 9th Aviation Battalion (Fort Lewis) 40 years ago was the author. I had originally read it 20 years ago. It's still a comprelling read - even if a "novel".

As a foreigner, Heath's English is kind of different from today's newspaper and blogs This fact alone justifies purchasing this book, which is the first of three volumes of Thomas L. Heath's English translation of this classic.

As a foreigner, Heath's English is kind of different from today's newspaper and blogs. Such long sentences are here and there. Long sentence with complicated structure is elegant and an indicator that the writer is well educated. This fact alone justifies purchasing this book, which is the first of three volumes of Thomas L. This volume contains a lengthy introduction, and the actual mathematics covers plane geometry. Highlights include the construction of the regular 15-gon using straightedge and compass.

From these books I was able to springboard into many other areas of mathematics, but I owe it all to Euclid. Heath's translation is quite perfect, and his explanations of the proofs and the historical background he provides make him the absolute authority on the subject

From these books I was able to springboard into many other areas of mathematics, but I owe it all to Euclid. Heath's translation is quite perfect, and his explanations of the proofs and the historical background he provides make him the absolute authority on the subject. This is the best translation out there, hands down.

Sorryyy
I really enjoyed the read , it brought back a lot of memories Good & bad well written and covered the area of Nam that I had worked in 1967/68 tour as crew & Maintenance Sgt with the 61st AHC at Lane. So good I will give it a seconded read real soon.

The author was very knowlegeable and wrote an interesting story. My Uncle fought in Vietnam and was located in some of the hot spots described in the book. He and I both enjoyed this book. It was a good read.

This is such a great book. I've read it several times over the years and lost my copy... Luckily, I looked here at amazon and found it. Hoping this book goes back in print and that it gets a kindle version. This is one of the finest books on helicopter warfare that you'll ever read and I recommend it wholeheartedly.

This is one of the most honest and enlightening stories I have read from the 'Nam era. It's also highly readable and enjoyable. If you read this book and do not want to scrape the money together to become rotary-winged qualified, then your hormonal glands must have atrophied.

First-rate flying sequences mixed with brief and terrifying combat images make this a "can't put it down" book. Billy Roark is one of us, and during the course of reading this story we become like him. The author does an outstanding job of putting you into the skin of this young man who is learning aspects of life & death that most of us will never have to face. The ending is almost a foregone conclusion, and after reading this book for the third time I realize viscerally exactly how Billy Roark felt, and understand completely the course of action he took. It's scary how easy it is to empathize insanity.

I believe this book is the single most over-looked and under-appreciated story in modern conflict fiction.

I cannot recommend it too highly.
Uaha
I was in the Navy at sea when I read this book. The book was given me by a shipmate after he had read it. I never even noticed the author's name. But went the book started with the description of Billy Rourkes home familiar pictures began to fill my mind and when he spoke of the hang out at the end of main street I knew he was talking about Grapevine Texas, my home of 1203 people that I had left in late 1963. I then saw who the author was and realized this was the kid from the class just behind me. The kid that I am pretty sure one of my sisters used to go out with. I was hooked.
The more I read the more I knew this man had been there and knew what he was speaking of. To me it was as engrossing as reading a Tom Clancy novel. All the equipment was there and it was being used correctly. When I was reading the book there was none of the thought of "There is no way that could happen", there was none of the frustration that those that have been there and done that feel when they read about things that have happened in their lives and it is all wrong.
Once I was into the book I found it very hard to put down. No matter where I was at in the process of reading the book I was always wanting to know what was going to happen next.
I loved the way that Layne went from his first tour in the slicks and transitioned into his second tour flying the scouts. That is the way it happened for many so again there was none of that shaking one's head and saying no way. The second got into the nitty-gritty of how the nativity that was there on the first tour was gone. There was no more of the John Wayne, I am the good guy attitude. Mr. Heath made it clear that he now knew that war was hell and that ones primary function besides destroying the enemies will and ability to wage war, was to stay alive and do what you could to keep your buddies alive.
The book was entertaining, the book was real, and the book was all but impossible to put down once you started reading it. The book was OUTSTANDING.

I read Layne's next book The Deep Blue and was just as taken with it as I was with the first. I have since looked for more books from Mr. Heath but have not found any. I have checked with my hometown resources to attempt to discover what happened to him and can find no information. I even ask my mother and if she does not know, then there is nothing to know.

The amount of detail in this book is absolutely astonishing. From small things such as “clear down left and right” calls, references to -13 checks, and accurate referencing to company names within 101. As a helicopter crew member I cannot recommend this book enough, it’s a dive into our heritage.
