Legend A Harrowing Story from the Vietnam War of One Green Beret's Heroic Mission to Rescue a Special Forces Team Caught Behind Enemy Lines Read & Download ↠ 105 The unforgettable account and courageous actions of the US Army’s 240th Assault Helicopter Company and Green Beret staff sergeant Roy Benavidez who risked everything to rescue a Special Forces team trapped behind enemy linesIn Legend acclaimed bestselling author Eric Blehm takes as his canvas the Vietnam War as seen through a single mission that occurred on May 2 1968 A twelve man Special Forces team had been covertly inserted into a small clearing in the jungles of neutral Cambodia where US forces were forbidden to operate Their objective just miles over the Vietnam border was to collect evidence that proved the North Vietnamese Army was using the Cambodian sanctuary as a major conduit for supplying troops and materie. The story of what Sgt Roy Benavidez did is truly amazing and one of the greatest acts of courage under fire that I have read But his heroics is just part of a great book that not only chronicles his life but is also about the Studies and Observations Group in Vietnam that went over the wire into Cambodia to track and fight the North Vietnamese on the Ho Chi Minh Trail Highly recommended

Roy Benavidez most certainly deserved the Congressional Medal of Honor He also deserved to have an author like Eric Blehm write this book This author meticulously researches his topics and presents his stories with accuracy and compassion He let us get to know Roy as a son husband father and green beret Roy s philosophy in life was as simple as When someone needs help you help them His service to our country was rooted in his dedication to his fellow comrades His humility determination and fearlessness were admirable on many levels His significant personal injuries never dulled his desire to get back into the action He was willing to do whatever it took to serve those who needed himThat said I did not enjoy reading this book not one bit The combat and missions were detailed brutal and and took a kind of courage that I m not able to envision The horrible ground combat on uncertain terrain where you weren t sure who was on your side and where the next shot or bomb would come from is the stuff of nightmares I don t think Blehm wrote this book for me to enjoy I believe he wrote it to disabuse me of my sanitized version of war It worked probably than any other Viet Nam book that I ve tackled I m going to contact a VN veteran whom I respect to see if he is able to read books like this about events similar to those that he endured in combat
