A Hundred Feet Over Hell is the story of a handful of young pilots taking extraordinary risks to support those on the ground. Flying over Vietnam in two-seater Cessnas, they often made the difference between a soldier returning alive to his family or having the lonely sound of “Taps” played over his grave. Based on extensive interviews, and often in the men’s own words, A Hundred Feet Over Hell puts the reader in the plane as this intrepid band of U.S. Army aviators calls in fire support for the soldiers and marines of I Corps.

This is the story of a few young pilots who operated in the northernmost part of Vietnam, along the DMZ. The only aerial unit to support front-line Marines, the 220th Recon Air Force rescued trapped soldiers, delivered supplies, and often made the difference between successfully rescuing a wounded comrade or laying the corpse to rest.
