Lakeland, Florida, Author Publishes New Historical Novel
Lakeland, Florida December 19, 2013 Entertainment News(PRLEAP.COM) "Cajun Flight," a new book Capt. Bob Fore, Ret., has been released by RoseDog Books.
"Cajun Flight" is a novel that graphically depicts the fiasco of the Vietnam War.
The credibility of the Johnson Administration decayed into chaos in March of 1968, as a result of the Tet Offensive and the gore of Khe Sanh. Desperate to retain its position of power, the Administration ordered a CIA-programmed bombing raid, coded "Quickstop," to kill Ho Chi Minh.
The Agency handpicked elite Marine Corps aviators to deliver the predecessor of Desert Storm's ultra-sophisticated weaponry via the F-4 Phantom II.
The exquisite classic airline stewardess, Jill, was Brad's much needed companion. From their intense passionate moments to their exhilarating escapades, together they shared the events of the war and the duties of a Marine: both at war and play.
Accompany these men as they perform in combat, court the ladies, convey their opinions of the war, and render answers as to its sponsors.
