The U.S. Army Special Forces and the U.S. Air Force join forces for an explosive mission in North Vietnam! Perfect for fans of Andrew Watts, L. T. Ryan, Don Keith and George Wallace.
Captain Gerber’s Green Berets have orders to destroy the Dragon’s Jaw…
Known as the Dragon’s Jaw, the Thanh Hoa bridge stretching across the Song Ma River is a vital link in North Vietnam’s supply line of soldiers, arms, ammunition and equipment to the South.
The U.S. Air Force plan to bomb it out of existence.
But the Americans are thwarted by heavy antiaircraft artillery and radar-guided weapon emplacements defending the site.
When a sneak-and-peek mission into the heart of enemy territory reveals that the bridge can’t be destroyed from the ground, U.S. Army Special Forces Captain Mack Gerber and Master Sergeant Anthony Fetterman lead a team of Green Berets on a covert night-time operation to take out the big guns, leaving the way clear for the Air Force bombers.
But as the airstrike on the bridge gets underway, an American news crew suddenly turn up … right in the path of the bombs.
