Bob Lanzotti provides his memoirs as an Army helicopter pilot during three overseas tours, all conducted during the turbulent 1960s. Each tour—one to Korea and two to Vietnam—contains a least a score of short stories. Lanzotti begins with his often humorous reflections as a fledgling aviator in Korea. As the book progresses, so too do Lanzotti’s aviator experience level and job responsibilities, culminating with his command of the Crimson Tide, a Chinook unit within the 1st Cavalry Airmobile Division. His stories recurrently pay well-earned homage to the achievements of the men he served and flew with during what he recalls as his greatest adventure.
