Synopsis

Based on the author's flight logs and memories, this book recounts four tours of military duty in Vietnam and how tactics and the war effort changed each time.The routine and risk of daily airlift operations and the various base destinations are outlined in chronological order, colored with personal anecdotes.Cargo included everything from elephants to dancing girls, and accidents and errors were all part of the mission. The author describes the work as a ""history-based, humorous, satirical, and bitter recount of a major national wasted effort,"" with commentary on the country's attitudes, costs and the lingering social impact of the war. The book includes personal photographs.

Bill Barry spent 20 years in the Air Force as a C-130 navigator, war planner and NATO intelligence officer and later served as an army missile contractor. His articles and columns have appeared in the New York Times and the U.S. Naval War College Review.
