Words from the "Gunfighter"

Here is a true story about unconventional operations in Vietnam that makes the fictional "Rambo" pale by comparison. The author led a small contingent of troops in a harrowing fifty-six hour rout of two Viet Cong Battalions although out numbered thirty to one. It is difficult to imagine a more demanding assignment in combat than for a lone American Special Forces soldier to lead a hand full of indigenous troops, often deep in hostile territory and far from the firepower support that is instantaneously available to conventional US forces. The action is non-stop, harrowing and all true. As a consequence of this encounter the author was awarded the Medal of Honor. Strap on your seatbelts, put on your flak jackets and get ready for a hell of a read!
Hank Emerson
Lieutenant General, United States Army (Ret)

     I envy you, most fortunate reader. The book you are about to read will allow you to experience that moth to flame intrigue that only armed conflict holds for the human psyche.
     Those who are fortunate enough to personally know the author appreciate his unusual ability to focus on a mission. Drew combines this focus with his core belief that "nothing’s ever as bad as you think it might be"- General George Patton said it " Never take counsel of your fears". As you will see, this combination of personality traits makes for one very effective warrior.
     This book is a page turner. Like all true stories, it is multilevel in that there is opportunity for the imagination to create philosophy and romance. You bring that, Drew Dix will bring the action!
