Staple-bound card wraps, 13.5 by 21.7 cm, [viii] 26  pp., illus. Very good with light creases and corner wear to the covers. An unusual zine-like glimpse of the Vietnam War through a transcription of one hour aboard an attack helicopter from the 334th Armed Helicopter Company – The Dragons. “These are not official U.S. Army tapes. They were recorded by Dragon 34 as a personal attempt to document the war. An inexpensive cassette recorder was carried in 34’s aircraft for several weeks and was turned on whenever it looked like something was about to happen.” The action is recorded line by line and is a fascinating read. Also included are some descriptions of flying maneuvers, a short glossary of terms, and several reproductions of personal snapshots. Scarce with OCLC showing only two copies and the original cassette at the Library of Congress.
