Do recommendations work? You bet! I admit that this is not the type of book I would normally read. However, what impressed me was the recommendations of the two pilots below. The way I figured it, if they thought John Cook had done a great job, and they were there, then maybe it was worth the effort. I'm here to tell you, they were right! Having grown up after the Vietnam war, I was always confused about what really happened there. All I ever heard was how the Americans were the bad guys and the Viet Cong were the good guys. John Cook blows all that away. There were real good guys in Vietnam and they flew the evacualtion missions. Now, for the first time, I understand. Cook's style is very easy to live with. He actually takes the reader along for the ride. The part I liked best was the end. He actually took the trouble to list the names of all those brave men who died saving the lives of the wounded. He didn't have to do this but he did. That got to me. Now, when I think of Vietnam, I'll remember Rescue Under Fire. Thank you, John Cook, and thank all of you who flew these missions.

Without question, Rescuse Under Fire is the best piece of writing I've read on Vietnam, and I've read a lot. John Cook is a natural story teller and his style takes you along with him. This business of rescuing Americans is a part of the war that has not been told, at least not with this degree of detail and realism. Clearly, Cook did an enormous amount of research to make this story flow as smoothly as it does. He makes the DUST OFF crews come alive and he makes you feel all the emotions they felt. Absolutely first rate!!!

I just finished reading Rescue Under Fire, and without question this is the finest book I have read on the Vietnam War. John Cook puts the reader on the battlefield, under fire, rescuing the wounded. Once I started reading this book, I found it impossible to put it down. When I finished, I spent the next two hours simply staring out the window, wondering where we found these men that flew these missions. Then I realised that what Cook had told me was true--America has always had men of this caliber. Ordinary men who perform extraordinary feats when the need arises. So, my message to Colonel Cook is simply this--Thank you, sir, for telling this story. Those of us who never went to Vietnam did not know. Now we do and we are eternally grateful to you for telling this story. Today, I ordered your other book on Vietnam, The Advisor. I know I will not be dissapointed.

The book is good historical presentation of the development of Dust Off in Vietnam. It focuses primarily on the pilots and their courage. Very little is mentioned about the medic and their heroic achievements. Dust Off medics saw more and did more than any other group of "field medic." The intimacy of the entire Dust Off team is totally missing in the book. Dust Off was more than just a pilot with three other guys going along for the ride. The author misses the uniqueness of the mobile relationship inside the UH-1H. Maybe he needs to write a sequel.

Aside from the obvious misspellings, grammatical errors, and sloppy editing, John Cook presents the story of Dustoff (Dustoff should be one word) quite well. The main body of the 45th Medical Company AA arrived in Vietnam on 13 July 1967 from Fort Bragg,NC. With 24 UH-1H helicopters, it added a tremendous presence to Dustoff efforts in Vietnam serving III and IV Corps areas which included the lower half of South Vietnam. As mentioned, Col Cook devoted only a few paragraphs to a Dustoff unit which probably accounted for a majority of evacuated casualties during the '67 to '68 time frame and perhaps later years as well. Hopefully he'll write a sequel which will shed some credit on the busiest and most dangerous Dustoff years.

For those unfamiliar, Dustoff units did not employ door gunners while the 1st Air Cavalry Division's "medevac" helicopters did. There is one misleading picture in the book which might lead readers to think otherwise.

Night and weather missions were often the most harrowing. Our unit SOP (standardized operating procedures) called for the requirement to have gunship coverage when going into hot LZ's (landing zones) in contact with the enemy. Most often, particularly at night and in weather, getting gunship coverage was impossible and following the Dustoff credo, we went with or without gunships, usually without.

Speaking on behalf of Dustoff crews, those of us who survived our Vietnam duty are proud to have served in such a meaningful job and thank Col Cook for bringing to light the story of Dustoff and those who made it happen.

This was a story that needed to be told; unfortunately, it was not told well. As an earlier review pointed out, the most intense period of Dust Off action was esentially treated in a single chapter. When you add that fact to the virtual lack of ANY editing, you could easily come to the conclusion that this was a project on a very tight schedule. The text is filled with errors--basic grammar, punctuation, misspelling, etc.--making it difficult to read. The subject deserved better treatment. Readers who care anything about the English language should pass on this sad attempt at a book.
The study of the medical evacuation in Vietnam. Without the units being set up and some of the brave pilots who were there to pickup there fellow soldiers, many more would have died in combat.
