Publisher Comments:

LRRPs had to be the best.

Anything less meant certain death.

When Ed Emanuel was handpicked for the first African American special operations LRRP team in Vietnam, he knew his six-man team couldnt have asked for a tougher proving ground than Cu Chi in the summer of 196868. Home to the largest Viet cong tunnel complex in Vietnam, Cu Chi was the deadly heart of the enemys stronghold in Tay Ninh Province.

Team 2/6 of Company F, 51st Infantry, was quickly dubbed the Soul Patrol, a gimmicky label that belied the true depth of their courage. Stark and compelling, Emanuels account provides an unforgettable look at the horror and the heroism that became the daily fare of LRRPs in Vietnam. Every mission was a tightrope walk between life and death as Emanuels team penetrated NVA bases, sidestepped lethal booby traps, or found themselves ambushed and forced to fight their way back to the LZ to survive. Emanuels gripping memoir is an enduring testament to the valor of all American LRRPs, who courageously risked their lives so that others might be free.

Synopsis:

This unique Vietnam War memoir looks at life and combat in an elite and very rare all-African-American LRRP Unit. Original.

Synopsis:

Offers a firsthand account of the exploits and accomplishments of the first African American special operations LRRP team in Vietnam, and describes their perilous missions amid the vast Viet Cong tunnel complexes of Cu Chi.
