Saving Bravo--The Greatest Rescue Mission in Navy Seal History

Saving Bravo--The Greatest Rescue Mission in Navy Seal History by Stephan Talty is the thrilling story of a heroic rescue that occurred toward the end of the Vietnam War. Lieutenant Colonel Gene Hambleton was part of a crew shot down behind enemy lines. He was a repository of valuable information about top-secret technology so the effort to find him and bring him out was huge. Helicopter rescue missions failed with the terrible loss of life and it was ultimately left to one Navy Seal and a Vietnamese commando to go via foot and boat and pull off the rescue. Hambleton had been on the run for eleven harrowing days before they reach him. The 53-year-old engineer who had never been on the front lines defied the odds and survived thanks to the extraordinary bravery of his rescuers. This is a well-researched account that is hard to put down. (Non-Fiction)
