The untold story of how the Vietnam War really began...

“Fantastic read. Couldn’t put it down. The author really did his homework.” Amazon Reviewer, 5 stars

A skilled and ruthless sniper kills to keep America free and his fellow soldiers safe. He is a breed apart. When the crosshairs of his rifle’s scope settle, a life ends. He doesn’t miss. Missing is for shavetails and greenhorns. He can survive for weeks in the harshest jungle. Silent and invisible, his prey never sees him coming and never hears the bullet that kills them.

But this assignment is different - an unknowing chance to prevent a war and save millions of lives. His mission - hunt down Ho Chi Minh, the merciless leader of a rebel army.

Based on actual historical events and real people A War Too Far is the true story of the elite OSS Deer Team and their daring operation in the mountains of North Vietnam near the end of World War II. A gut-wrenching tale of the unbreakable bond between brothers-in-arms, bravery beyond reason, and an astonishing betrayal that would alter the world forever.

A fact-based novel that reveals the real beginning of the Vietnam War and the first American soldiers to fight and die in the jungles of Vietnam.

A War Too Far is the first book in the highly acclaimed Airmen Series – historical novels that read like a modern political thriller, full of exciting action, and larger-than-life characters. Each book reveals unforgettable events leading up to and during the war that changed America forever.
