about this item

"The best Vietnam War novels yet for this age range." - KIRKUS REVIEWS

When his three best friends go to Vietnam, Beck knows he must honor his promise to go with them. He enlists in the US Air Force, where he's able to work as a mechanic, learning about planes and choppers and supersonic jets. He's also able to view the war from above, where he can admire the savage beauty of the jungle at a distance.

Beck thinks he has it all figured out. But when his tour of duty takes a turn for the worse, one thing becomes clear: Beck still has a lot to learn about war, and about friendship, too.
