A Navy A-7 Fighter Pilot's Gripping Tale of Escape and Rescue during the Vietnam War!
|An extraordinary story, superbly told. I predict that The Rescue of Streetcar 304 will become an instant military aviation classic." —Stephen Coonts
"As an infantryman in Vietnam, I sometimes looked up to see our warbirds soaring overhead and wondered who was in the cockpit. It turns out a high school friend of mine, Kenny Fields, was one of them. Not only that, he was shot down and had a most remarkable wartime adventure, told now in one of the best books set in that era I've ever read. I'm proud of Kenny's service, prouder still that he has written a most remarkable book that deserves a huge audience." —Homer Hickam, author of Rocket Boys
"Kenny Fields is the ultimate survivor. For forty hours he evaded the enemy as we Sandy A-1 Skyraider pilots tried to pluck him from the hostile jungle. Here is the riveting account of his escape from Laos . . . fasten your seatbelt!" —George Marrett, author of Contrails over the Mojave
