Almost five decades after American troops left Vietnam, thousands of that war’s veterans are dying. Many are taking untold stories of combat to their graves, believing nobody wants to hear what they experienced. Others, who see their horizon approaching are now sharing memories with families, friends and other veterans. Vietnam era Air Force Veteran and author William B. Scott introduces his new book, Combat Contrails: Vietnam, which captures 18 of these stories, most of which have never appeared in print.
COMBAT CONTRAILS: VIETNAM comprises 18 stories told by combatants who fought on the ground, in the air and over the water. From rescuing downed pilots as a determined enemy closed in, to dealing with a crazed water buffalo in the back of a lumbering C-123K transport, weathered warriors share their amazing, unforgettable Vietnam War experiences. COMBAT CONTRAILS: VIETNAM is the first book in a series of true stories ranging from the Cold War and reconnaissance to flight testing, combat in Iraq and Afghanistan, and special operations around the world.
