Rolling ThundereBook - 2012
He came against his will to fight in a war he didn't believe in. She lived to make the lives of her fellow villagers easier, and dreamed of a day when her home was free. In a simple land now overturned with passion and death, they found through each other something far greater than themselves. On a lonely airstrip deeply surrounded in enemy territory, U. S. Marine Corps aircrews struggle to eke out an existence as they try to sleep with the terrifying booms of impacting enemy mortars and rockets just outside their tents. In a flash, their lifeline of supplies is blown to pieces, severely jeopardizing their country's war effort in a bloody, losing proposition. They manage to carry on, as bombs falling from their jets rumble across their enemy's land as steady as Rolling Thunder. Welcome to Linh Thu, South Vietnam, where the Pathet Lao strikes nightly from just outside the base. Supplies are almost gone, and comfort and security are a fading memory. Into the melee arrives a recently broken-hearted fighter pilot hoping to serve his tour and go home, but that was before it was discovered he could speak the native language. Marine Captain Valentine Jordan now must obtain the necessities of life from local merchants, and finds the beautiful Nga Nghin Do'i is only one who can help him. Rolling Thunder is a story of love conquering the stubborn fronts of hate, pride and enmity in the worst of conditions, during a fierce, bloody and passionate war.
