Element of Surprise
It was the most elegantly executed special-operations raid to date in modern American warfare. High risk. The chances of returning were 50 percent. Of the six helicopters involved, one would crash-land inside the targetís high-walled compound.
Cool Read, Thanks for the link.
I knew about Son Tay raid but I didn't know how was this mission prepared, thanks Ordie.
There's a couple of books covering the raid, IMHO, the best one is simply title "The Raid".
