Ron Alexander & Charles W. Sasser. Ron Alexander is 5’3” tall & weighs 110 pounds, making him the shortest American pilot to fly in the Vietnam War. He’s also one of the most highly decorated chopper pilots to come out of that war. In this action-driven account, readers will follow Alexander as he goes above & beyond the call of duty. Alexander became a living legend, piloting Huey “slicks” & gunships into red-hot LZs, inserting Blue Teams into infantry battle, rescuing fellow soldiers from areas bursting with machine-gun fire, & buzzing treetops in a deadly “shark & bait” game. Readers will take off in the cockpit with Alexander as bullets smash through the airframe Plexiglas & instrument panels erupt in smoke & sparks. “A barn burner of a memoir that spares no details & moves with rapid-fire pace.” Illus.
