This is a must read. What I really liked about his book is the description of how our military went after the men who shot down Extortion 17. Within days they were dead. Doesn't pay to mess with the US Military.

This was a factual, fairly straightforward factual retelling of events without much flag waving or expression of political views. Even the few bits of flag waving just came about organically because of the backgrounds given for those involved.
I have only two real complaints about the book. Firstly there are a lot of unit designations and the author sometimes fires them off in quick order and thus muddying the narrative. This also happens with individuals. Sometimes the author refers to them by first name, full name or last name. This might be clearer in the text version but the audio version I was left wondering who was actually who and to what unit they belonged and how they related to the story.
The second complaint is with the structure of the book. The author will skip forward and backward in time, detailing historical events that happened well before the incident that led to the book. While interesting and (possibly relevant) these time hopes broke the flow of the narrative for me and I had to stop and try and match up the various timeline strands so that I could keep track of where in time the author was speaking about.
