Join author Stephan Talty for a harrowing story from one of the world’s most contentious conflicts. Shot down and stranded behind enemy lines during the turning point of the Vietnam War, Lt. Col. Gene Hambleton would become the subject of the greatest rescue mission in Navy SEAL history. Talty shares a story of survival and sacrifice in this illustration of the cost of war.

The untold story of the most important rescue mission not just of the Vietnam War, but the entire Cold War: one American aviator, who knew our most important secrets, crashed behind enemy lines and risked capture by both the North Vietnamese and the Soviets. One Navy SEAL and his Vietnamese partner had to sneak past them all to save him.
