    The true story of what was known as BAT-21, a rescue mission in 1972 for down Lt. Colonel Gene Hambleton. The difference in this book this book than others that I have read is that you find out that there were 11 attempts first to rescue him that all failed. You find out about the men in those missions the young and not so young who did not come home and two who were captured and released years later. The author takes you to the very back story where many planes and other equipment were diverted The true story of what was known as BAT-21, a rescue mission in 1972 for down Lt. Colonel Gene Hambleton. The difference in this book this book than others that I have read is that you find out that there were 11 attempts first to rescue him that all failed. You find out about the men in those missions the young and not so young who did not come home and two who were captured and released years later. The author takes you to the very back story where many planes and other equipment were diverted for this attempted rescue attempt. This later would hurt gourd forces for us and for the Vietnamese army. This whole story was told once as Bat-21 a book and later a movie. Both of which were nothing like what really happened. You then get the back story of the Navy Seal Tommy Norris and his Vietnamese soldiers who went with him behind enemy lines for the rescue of first Owens then Hambleton, which was just Norris and one soldier. The rest of the story of what happened to all of the men once they came was very interesting as well. I found this to be a very well written and researched book. The information was much more than any other of the previous books, and of course the movie. Well done and once again shows you what we were capable of if they D.C. would have let the men fight and not made it into politics. A very good read. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com

    Saving Bravo is the story of rescuing Lt. Colonel Gene Hambleton by Navy Seal Thomas (Tommy) Norris and events leading up to and following that event. Towards the end of the Vietnam War the flight bat 21 was shot down and Hambleton survived. He had immense knowledge of US missile systems and other classified information that the US Government did not want falling into other hands which led to one of the largest military rescue operations in the nation’s history.

Towards the end of the Vietnam War the flight bat 21 was shot down and Hambleton survived. He had immense knowledge of US missile systems and other classified information that the US Government did not want falling into other hands which led to one of the largest military rescue operations in the nation’s history. Hundreds of planes and helicopters would be used to try and rescue him leading to the downing and capturing of other Americans. Ultimately it would be at the hands of a US Marine who would go behind enemy lines and find the missing American (with the use of a lot of golf knowledge) to bring the two together and rescue him. Like all of Talty’s other books this one is fast paced and keeps you turning the page to find out what happens next.

    A very interesting tale of survival as it details the extraordinary rescue efforts taken to rescue 1 navigator Gene Hambleton during the Vietnam War. It details the air campaign to save him in which several other men are either captured or on the run and several others are killed. It details the bureaucratic problems as he has landed right in the middle of a major NVA attack and they keep telling the rescuers that their should be minimal enemy activity.

    A excellent book about Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Gene Hambleton who was shot down over North Vietnam in 1972. Hambleton held classified information that if captured, could be tortured to produce the information. After days of hiding from the enemy and failed rescue missions, Thomas Norris, a Navy SEAL set out a plan to rescue Hambleton and bring him to safety.
