Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

"Fractions of a second in time. What amazing violence can be meted out in the blink of an eye."

In the mid-nineteen sixties, Harry Constance made a life-altering journey that led him out of Texas and into the jungles of Vietnam. As a young naval officer, he went from UDT training to the U.S. Navy's newly formed SEAL Team Two, and then straight into furious action. By 1970, he was already the veteran of three hundred combat missions and the recipient of thirty-two military citations, including three Bronze Stars and a Purple Heart.

Good To Go is Constance's powerful, firsthand account of his three tours of duty as a member of America's most elite, razor-sharp stealth fighting force. It is a breathtaking memoir of harrowing missions and covert special-ops—from the floodplains of the Mekong Delta to the beaches of the South China Sea—that places the reader in the center of bloody ambushes and devastating firefights. But his extraordinary adventure goes even farther—beyond 'Nam—as we accompany Constance and the SEALs on astonishing missions to some of the world's most dangerous hot-spots . . . and experience close-up the courage, dedication, and unparalleled skill that made the U.S. Navy SEALs legendary.

Includes 8 Pages of SEAL Team Action Photos!

Excellent récit auto-biographique de l'engagement de Harry Constance, commando marine SEAL au Vietnam.

1967.

Au Vietnam, la consigne était de trouver et de détruire les unités Viet Cong, de nettoyer la campagne des éléments Viet Cong (VC), agissant en peloton, village par village. Les SEALs opèrent habituellement en section de six soldats de nuit avec une puissance de feu énorme destinée à alimenter un engagement total, féroce, rapide. Des heures de préparation méticuleuse et attentive ainsi qu'un travail de renseignement ont été nécessaires pour que les unités SEAL se préparent pour chaque combat.

Présents dans de petites unités derrière les lignes ennemies, ils ont souvent dû faire face à des pièges, aux moustiques, sangsues, roseaux aiguisés comme des rasoirs, mines et serpents venimeux avant de pouvoir arriver à des positions ennemies.

Harry Constance loue les fidèles vietnamiens qui ont combattu avec les Seals, les estimant valeureux soldats. En revanche, il considère l'armée régulière du Sud-Vietnam comme généralement inefficace et corrompue. Au cours de ses trois tours au Vietnam, Constance servit dans près de 300 missions de combat, a été crédité de la capture de quelque 200 prisonniers, a reçu trois médailles "Bronze Star" et une "Purple Heart".

Excellent récit auto-biographique de l'engagement d'un commando SEAL au Vietnam. Le temps a fini par cicatriser nombre de blessures psychologiques, conférant au livre, la sagesse. Un passionnant récit d'un héros à la personnalité très attachante.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 VC, SEALs, Loving a whore, betrayal= Great Book! 17 mai 2014
Par Dsmooth - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I found this book Good to Go and a must read for anyone who is into Special Operations or war.

Author Harry Constance a former SEAL from the Vietnam era pulls no punches as he names names. He discusses his tours of duty deep behind Viet Cong lines. SEAL team Two was a brutal, ruthless but effective unit and Constance was no different.

He details missions in which his team set ambushes, entered hooches and captured or killed numerous VC and NVA. He didn't hold back in his description of killing VC, such as stabbing and lifting them up. Basically driving his knife deep into their ribs until they ceased to exist.

He was there for the 68 Tet offensive as his team battled NVA and Charlie from a hotel.

During his time state side he meets a woman who he falls for and she turns out to be a lying, cheating whore. Harry finds out but he kept falling for her whorish ways. I wanted to beat Harry for not standing up to her but eventually he does.

Later in the book some of his own former Team members betray him, which was sickening. Men who you go to war with turn on you? Smh!

Overall this Is a great book save a few pages which I skipped, I found myself thoroughly entertained.

You will too!

A truly amazing story of a tough life dealing with politics in the military. Very interesting about the time you spent in Viet Man and all the tours that you made. Small world but my Dad worked for the Army Depot and I think he use to talk about the head of Security with your name. I feel really sad for you and the at they treated you towards the end of your career in the Navy. Glad to hear of your life now.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 The heartfelt story of a Man 11 janvier 2015
Par Antonov - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Good, bad, angry, sad and the story of a normal guy who did some extraordinary things in his life, the overriding lesson from this man is- never give up. Every person has strengths, weaknesses and fears. At last a book about a man, who though being larger than life in his exploits, shows all the flaws of a normal man in the street, and through perseverance picks his way through the minefields of life to find his happy ending. A worthwhile, sometimes brutal, but ultimately fulfilling read. It's worth the money.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 How can you tell he is lying? His lips are moving 23 décembre 2014

I couldn't even finish it, there is just no way that any part of this book is true. I even doubt if the author ever even fired a weapon in his life let alone in combat. He talks about carrying 3000 rounds of ammo into a fight, does he have any idea how much 3000 rounds of ammo weighs? The whole book just comes off as a look at me I am a bad ass, they assault a beach that no other unit could take with 14 guys and the enemy knew they were coming? Come on.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great read. Very fun and quite surprising 27 juin 2016

I was expecting something like Richard Marcinko's "Rogue Warrior" light, I guess. I was pleasantly surprised that this is really nothing like that. The author's experiences are remarkable and are another example of truth being stranger than fiction. You couldn't make this stuff up. No spoilers, but this is really a great story in addition to being very entertaining and offering an insight into the life and times of a Vietnam Combat SEAL. A must read
