Waiting for minimum critic reviews


At the height of the Vietnam War, twenty-seven members of a U.S. special elite team were dropped into North Vietnam to fight alongside the Rands and Montagnards against the communist regime. Their job was to ambush troops along the Ho Chi Minh Trail, one of the most dangerous of the war. Of the twenty-seven men who went in, only three made it back.

One of them is Henry Morgan a modern-day Odysseus struggling to find a way of returning from the Vietnam War. Now living in a monastery, he has turned his back on the world that turned its back on him. But times change and there is a need for a man like Morgan again. A man who has made his voyage. An Odysseus who can bring order to a chaotic world.
