Before a nation declared war, one force was winning an unknown fight The war is a nightmare that haunts them to this day: disgrace, abandonment, retreat. But years before the protests turned the tide of public opinion--before the politicians hijacked the battleplan and ensured ultimate failure--the U.S. Navy SEALs were hitting a once arrogant enemy hard, relentlessly...and right where he lived. No longer could NVA guerillas move unchecked across invisible borders. And no longer were they safe in their own backyard. Before the war in Vietnam exploded in its full fury, a fearless chosen few were already bloodied veterans of a savage secret war. At China Beach, while the CIA plays shadow games with men all too willing to die for their country, two American warriors wait for the opportunity to prove their mettle. In two years the floodgates of war will burst open at Tonkin Gulf. But for a pair of SEALs--meticulously trained and ready to embark upon an impossible mission behind enemy lines--duty is calling...now!Riker, H.
