Great read if you are looking for a Special Forces book out of the ordinary. Pretty funny how he explains jumping out of a plane strapped to a suitcase Nuke.
Book was as descibed.
It has been awhile since I read this book but it was very interesting at the time. I read the book while I was still in the Army and could relate to its author.
Great story
Arrived promptly and in good condition. Easy to find and order. Great value for the price. Will continue to use Amazon.
After all these years, i still am haunted about the American war in Vietnam and "Code Name Copperhead" is another source of bringing old memories to the front. Thirty three years after returning from Vietnam I wrote about my experiences as a surgeon and company commander in that war, "Delta Six, Soldier Surgeon". I was writing about guys like Sergeant Major Joe R. Garner, men who did their job with honor, dignity, and skills that were legendary. Thank you Joe, for what you did for us, and I am sorry you didn't get the post duty accolades you deserved. Unlike other wars, the soldiers returning from the battlefields of "The Nam" seemed to be blamed for the war.

You told it like it was and always will be. We are proud of what we did for our country even though it seemed thankless at the time. God bless you Joe.

Author "Delta Six, Soldier Surgeon"
This book was an action packed read and well worth the money. Sergeant Major Garner joined US Army Special Forces early in its history back in the 1950's. He soldiered with such legendary SF personalities such as Bull Simons and Dick Meadows. He soldiered on Operation White Star in Laos and SOG. If it involved action and SF in the 1960's the good Sgt. major was there. His chapters on SOG read like an instructional manual on strategic recce.
The reason I ordered this book was to read the this soldier's account of parachuting with a nuclear device rigged to his parachute harness/container and dropping into a DZ at Fort Bragg. Pretty interesting. Well worth the 1 cent plus shipping I paid for it.
