    OK if there was ever a person who deserved the Congressional Medal of Honor, it would be Roy Benavides What makes this story so compelling is that it unfolds over several hours, involves dozens of soldiers on both the ground and in helicopters and as such, the reader is drawn into turning the page to see what happens and who survives and who does not The maps are superb.Once the action starts in Cambodia ca 1968, the pace does not let up I stayed up past my bed time The author does a goo OK if there was ever a person who deserved the Congressional Medal of H...
