The tide is turning against the Vietnam War…
Republic of Vietnam, 1967
After a year spent training recruits back home in the United States, U.S. Special Forces Captain Mack Gerber and Master Sergeant Anthony B. Fetterman return to Vietnam to find a lot has changed.
The antiwar movement is gaining momentum and the last thing the U.S administration needs is negative press headlines. As a result, the officers in the field are cautioned to keep all missions low-profile.
Working out of Saigon, Fetterman’s first assignment is a reconnaissance mission to the Hobo Woods region, where intelligence shows a massive buildup of enemy forces.
Disaster strikes when a helicopter assault force is mounted to find and destroy this division.
Ambushed by the enemy, and with over half their choppers shot down, one hundred and twenty American soldiers are in danger of being overrun by the Viet Cong.
Pinned down and taking heavy casualties, can Gerber pull off a daring rescue operation without sparking a political firestorm…?
The Hobo Woods is the seventh book in the Vietnam: Ground Zero series by Eric Helm.
