Flying Through Midnight: A Pilot's Dramatic Story of His Secret Missions Over Laos During the Vietnam War - John T. Halliday i think I'm almost done with my Vietnam period. This book was written by a air force pilot who was sent to Vietnam in 1970. While the author did describe his time and activities, he spent much more time discussing the bureaucracy and the incompetence of management. In a way, this was more depressing as decisions were made by admin around what would help their own careers while ignoring the ramifications on others. The writing was okay, his desciptions fairly easy to follow, and he and his bunch of cronies were likeable.
