Book Synopsis
In TEN SECONDS OVER DIEN BIEN PHU," the author introduces readers to the real story of American civilian pilots, including the colorful and famed "Earthquake" McGoon, who volunteer to fly desperately needed supplies to the gallant but besieged French Union Forces at Dien Bien Phu in Indochina in 1954. In this excerpt from Russell' novel, PURVIS'S WARS, the author's protagonist, Sgt. Ken Purvis, is a former U.S. Army correspondent, back from Korea in 1953 and assigned to a boring desk job. Turned down by the U.S. military to be assigned to Indochina, Purvis takes annual leave and arrives in Indochina posing as a reporter only to find himself in trouble with certain "mysterious" elements. Along the way however, he tells the story of the secret and brave CIA "contract pilots" The battle of Dien Bien Phu and the loss of Indochina by the French has been considered a precursor to America's entry into the Southeast Asian conflict.
