Authentic writing of real life experience of wartime. Compelling with an insight given only from someone who lived it.
—Jimmy Westmoreland, Vietnam 1967-1969
Bill Peterson’s book, Missions of Fire and Mercy, is filled with thrilling and technically accurate day-to-day descriptions of his tour and experiences as a crew chief in Vietnam. He is a gifted storyteller who writes no “fluff copy”. His attention to detail is outstanding, and in the end he is able to make a great page turning story out of the not so great “Vietnam Conflict”. His award winning Missions of Mercy and Fire resonates with history and invokes both good and bad memories of the 60’s and 70’s. I cannot wait for the newest installment Chopper Warriors. It is guaranteed to be a historically accurate look at our involvement in Viet Nam through Bill’s eyes and experiences.
