Most of what people see now of the Vietnam War are the news clips and the Veterans at events. But what if you were there to experience it? What if you could give a first hand account? That is exactly what happens in Black Cat 2-1, where author Bob Ford tells not only his story during the war but first hand experiences of what really happened.
Ford was a helicopter pilot in the Vietnam War, and covered over 1000 missions saving other soldiers and protecting the troops as well. He brings to life his story so the reader can experience what it may have been like – and how the troops felt at the time.
With moments that feel like they were written for a movie, Black Cat 2-1 will take you in the air over Vietnam and through some of the hardest missions you could expect.
About Black Cat 2-1:
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 invites readers into the Huey helicopters he flew on more than 1,000 missions when he and his men dared to protect and rescue. For those whose voices were silenced in that faraway place or who have never told their stories, he 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.
