    I have read this book many times. I can thoroughly recommend it.
    Chickenhawk is Robert Mason's narrative of his experiences as a UH-1 Iroquois helicopter pilot during the Vietnam War. The book chronicles his enlistment, flight training, deployment to and experiences in Vietnam, and his experiences after returning from the war.

    The link below is for the authors site, including many photos chronicling persons, events and places mentioned in the book.

    I read this book a number of years ago and I agree, one of the best of its kind that I have read. Thanks for the link. I enjoyed looking through his gallery, too. (Y)
