from the "Gunfighter"
Here is a true story about unconventional
operations in Vietnam that makes the fictional "Rambo" pale by comparison. The
author led a small contingent of troops in a harrowing fifty-six hour rout of two Viet
Cong Battalions although out numbered thirty to one. It is difficult to imagine a more
demanding assignment in combat than for a lone American Special Forces soldier to lead a
hand full of indigenous troops, often deep in hostile territory and far from the firepower
support that is instantaneously available to conventional US forces. The action is
non-stop, harrowing and all true. As a consequence of this encounter the author was
awarded the Medal of Honor. Strap on your seatbelts, put on your flak jackets and get
ready for a hell of a read!

I envy you, most fortunate reader. The book you are about to read will allow you to
experience that moth to flame intrigue that only armed conflict holds for the human
Those who are fortunate enough to personally know the
author appreciate his unusual ability to focus on a mission. Drew combines this focus with
his core belief that "nothings ever as bad as you think it might be"-
General George Patton said it " Never take counsel of your fears". As you will
see, this combination of personality traits makes for one very effective warrior.
This book is a page turner. Like all true stories, it is
multilevel in that there is opportunity for the imagination to create philosophy and
romance. You bring that, Drew Dix will bring the action!
