The story of what Sgt Roy Benavidez did is truly amazing and one of the greatest acts of courage under fire that I have read But his heroics is just part of a great book that not only chronicles his life but is also about the Studies and Observations Group in Vietnam that went over the wire into Cambodia to track and fight the North Vietnamese on the Ho Chi Minh Trail Highly recommended

infiltrated a section of jungle that concealed a major enemy base Soon they found them¬selves surrounded by hundreds of NVA troops under attack low on ammunition and stacking the bodies of the dead as cover in a desperate attempt to survive the onslaughtWhen Special Forces staff sergeant Roy Benavidez heard the distress call he jumped aboard the next helicopter bound for the combat zone without hesitation Orphaned at the age of seven Benavidez had picked cotton alongside his family as a child and dropped out of school as a teen before joining the Army Although he was grievously wounded

soldier We read about the first adventures and struggles as he tries to achieve his dream being a paratrooper Although he has some major setbacks he eventually becomes a Green Beret Fighting soldiers from the sky Fearless men who jump and die Men who mean just what they say The brave men of the Green BeretNext we are reading about May 2 1968 This is probably the most important part of the story as

the remaining men of the team Or will he die on the battlefield tooThe story switches between the story about Benavidez and information about the war in Vietnam I was hooked from the first chapter and really enjoyed learning about the Vietnam war As a Dutch girl I know almost everything there is to know about World War II but the other wars aren t covered as much in our History lessons so I was very curious to learn about this Although it sometimes felt like I was reading either a newspaper article or a History book we use at school it was perfectly fine and it was in balance not too much of the one and not too much of the other This book is nothing like I read before I found myself absorbed in the story and read it in two sittings I was glad to find out that war wasn t romanticized as much as I expected it to be as some other war themed books do I think it s good to read a book like this from time to time because it makes you think about all the soldiers out there all the wars that are being fought this very moment I would for sure recommend it to anyone and I m rating it 45 starsThis book was provided to me by Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review Tehanu enemy

Legend A Harrowing Story from the Vietnam War of One Green Beret's Heroic Mission to Rescue a Special Forces Team Caught Behind Enemy Lines Free download È 2 Review Legend A Harrowing Story from the Vietnam War of One Green Beret's Heroic Mission to Rescue a Special Forces Team Caught Behind Enemy Lines He would never walk again Benavidez fought his way back ultimately earning his green beretWhat followed would become legend in the Special Operations community Flown into the foray of battle by the courageous pilots and crew of the 240th Assault Helicopter Company Benavidez jumped from the hovering aircraft and ran nearly 100 yards through withering enemy fire Despite being immediately and severely wounded Benavidez reached the perimeter of the decimated team provided medical care and proceed¬ed to organize an extraordinary defense and rescue During the hours long battle he was bayoneted shot and hit by grenade shrapnel than thirty times yet he refused to abandon his efforts until every survivor was out of harm’s way. This story is about Staff Sgt Roy Benavidez a Green Beret who risked his own life to rescue another team that was pinned downed in Cambodia This was time during the Vietnam War that our leaders wanted to stop the supplies that were coming in from Cambodia during the Johnson administration Lack of communication was just one of the problems that day This book begins with his early life losing both parents and being taken in by and Aunt and Uncle along with their grandfather The grandfather would pass along stories and it is because of these stories and that you help your fellow man that you are lead up to the day and the battle that is taking place Roy is on his way to breakfast when one of the helicopters is coming in for fuel and ammo He over hears the crew talking and knowing that a team went out earlier he asks about one of his friends and is told about what is taking place he immediately grabs his medic kit and hopes into the helicopter When he gets to the area he can barely see two of the men but he can see all of the rounds being fired he asks the crew to drop him off which was about 75 yards from where this giant ant hill was and where a few were hold up He ran across zig sagging but still took a round to the leg He made to the hill with medical supplies and ammo which they were running out of As the battle grew the spotter called in for an all out code signaling that a troop was about to be overrun Though they were in Cambodia within 5 10 minutes he had multiple jets dropping bombs napalm firing there cannons and yet the enemy still were coming in mass amounts Roy had got the other men together plus a member of a down helicopter crew and they were putting up a last stand or so they thought One of the helicopters only took half the fuel and added extra ammo and rockets and by losing their two door gunners two Warrant officers step up and they took off with a crew of entirely officers unheard of When they arrived they knew they had one last attempt at a rescue because of darkness when they went in Roy and another man got all of the men in plus Roy went back to get and to double check he was wounded multiple times and collapse on the floor of the helicopter Because when they went in they were dressed liked the enemy they had actually put Roy in a body bag thinking he was the enemy and dead until the Sgt Major told them to get him out and they felt a faint pulse he was rushed to a hospital The survivors were all sent to different hospitals and had thought that no one made it out It was not until a story made it to the newspaper and one of the survivors wrote the Army that people were realizing what other people already knew that Roy was a Hero and should be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor It would be thirteen years later but it did happen I of course am leaving out a lot from this book but this is a great read for everyone and I do want to mention the 240th Assault helicopter Company who provided support and lost three helicopters and crew members that day in rescue attempts and providing support for them Once again this goes to show you the brave men from all of the wars and these men from Vietnam are finally getting their stories told What a legacy for the Green Berets as well and his family A great book I got this book from net galley
