This book is an eye--witness testimony to a tragic incident in the Vietnam War.

Assigned to Swift boats in DaNang, RVN, I arrived in June 1968. PCF-12, the boat to which I was assigned was involved in an incident involving North Vietnamese Helicopters, U.S. Air Force Jets, and U.S. Marines ashore. PCF-19 was sunk with the loss of five crewman. It was blamed on "friendly fire". This book is the real story, of what I believe was "hostile fire", as told by withnesses who were there.

Excerpt
About 0330, low on ammunition and all the barrels burned out on the machine guns, PCF-12 received a call from an aircraft flight leader as they approached from the south to intercept. PCF-12 and Point Dume were to fire a blue flare to identify our positions. The jets flew overhead and acknowledged our positions. There were explosions and blinking lights to the north as the jets looked for targets. Remember, this is at least three hours after PCF-19 was sunk.
