    Description

    American troops are in contact....

    The UH-1H helicopter swoops in to bail them out....

    Tracer fire everywhere, the windshield shatters, the door gunners returning fire....

    Will Colonel Cory’s helicopter be able to rescue the pinned down soldiers?

    Undaunted Valor is the firsthand account of helicopter pilot, Colonel Dan Cory as he flies combat missions in the jungles of Vietnam. From dodging enemy ground fire and RPGs, to constant mortar and rocket attacks on his base, Colonel Cory stared down the enemy to bring his fellow soldiers’ home.

    Join Colonel Cory as he recounts some of the most intense helicopter and ground combat of the Vietnam War from the eyes of a man who spent two combat tours there. From being shot down by enemy fire, to leading his air crew to repel an enemy assault, Colonel Cory’s firsthand accounts of the Vietnam War are awe-inspiring. Awarded the Silver Star, and two Bronze Stars for Valor, Cory’s hair-raising accounts of what it was like to fly over the uungles of Vietnam will make you feel as if you are right there with him.

    Good story. Horrible narration.

    I’m retired from the Air Force and can relate to much of this story. It has the hallmarks of authenticity, from the naivety of noobs, the stress that combat takes and the ignorance of midgrade Officers who flew desks. A good read.

    But a horrible audiobook. The narrator seems to not know how punctuation should affect his speech pattern, rhythm and tense. He is at times mechanical and other times overly dramatic. He often stops mid-sentence and then hurriedly finishes it. There are also several times that the audio was dubbed as if the narrator made mistakes and had to correct them later. He is probably a nice guy but really bad at reading out loud. You can actually hear him swallow as if his throat was getting dry.

    Buy the printed book. Don’t waste your money on the audiobook. The bad narrator will just piss you off.

    This was not supposed to be fiction

    This was listed under biographies and memoirs. The first sentence of the book tells you it’s a fictional piece of work. That’s very misleading. I wasn’t looking for fiction, I was looking for a biography or a memoir. I Wasted one credit on a lie

    WOW!

    After listening to Maj. Jackson on Jocko Podcast 275. I had to listen to this book.

    The bravery & heroism of these crews was amazing. The skill & determination of these pilots is inspiring.

    There were many leadership lessons to be learned in this book.

    I highly recommend it.

    NOT a "combat story." VERY misleading title.

    I'm at chapter 28 (9hrs into a 13hr book and 1 year into his tour) and, while it's a nice story, there's not been one "harrowing" combat story to speak of, so far (action starts at chapter 38...11+ hours in). A more appropriate title would be, "How I Learned to Fly a Helicopter and Ran Non-Combat missions in Vietnam," because the how-to explanations and technical descriptions are, at first, interesting, but eventually become excruciatingly boring.

    And there's a whole chapter dedicated to him flying delivery/pickup missions (which is the bulk of the book) with his dad...a civilian...letting his dad take the controls...etc., even though he' never flown helicopter in his life. So, if his dad is flying missions with him in Vietnam, that should tell you something.

    The narrator is a bit annoying and most all of his "character voices" all sound meek, timid and wimpy.

    If you want a nice story about flying choppers in Vietnam, Undaunted Valor is ok. If you want nail-biting, combat action, you most definitely will not find it here.

    Excellent

    This was an excellent read. The author tells an amazing story that’s broken in to short chapters. The narrator has an odd speech pattern but it can be over looked. Great story!

    Outstanding book about the war in Vietnam!

    An outstanding book about the integration of helicopters into the battlefields of Vietnam. This book paints a very surreal picture of life as a combat helicopter pilot. The skills required to maneuver a helicopter in the jungles of Vietnam was a team effort. It was overall a very gritty story filled with laughter and sadness. A great tribute to all the helicopter crews who flew in combat. I couldn't put it down!

    Fantastic story, but has some production issues

    First, don’t be thrown off with the “based on true events”. During interviews the author explains the stories are all true, but it’s listed as fiction because some family members of the deceased or the individuals still alive didn’t want their names in the book. So he changed their names around in order to tell the stories without running into legal issues.

    Now, for the actual production, the narration was okay, but there is a lot of background noise (I would very much like to see the cat with the bell I kept hearing). There are some obvious sport where names of villages and regions were cut in because of pronunciation. There’s also consistent pauses where you can hear the clicking of switching to the next page.

    That is where the bad ends, just wanted to get that out of the way. The actual narration is rather decent when on a roll. The technical description of what it was like to fly in a Huey is really good, the actual insight to warrant officers is really good. Who knew they did more than drink coffee and judge everyone for not being smart? I’m really glad these stories are being told, can’t wait to move on the other volumes!
