BIG MOTHER 40, a Vietnam War novel

You get to ride with Josh Haman as he flies an HH-3A with the call sign BIG MOTHER 40 on combat rescues and insertions and extractions of SEAL teams in the hunt for the secret missile base. U.S. Air Force pilots are becoming reluctant to fly into North Vietnam from Thailand because the North Vietnamese are shooting them down at an unacceptable rate from a base they cannot find.   At the secret missile base, Colonel Alexei Koniev, a Soviet Army leading experts in surface to air missile warfare is testing his theories.  His napalm scarred counterpart, Colonel Du Nguyen, is pressuring Koniev to shoot down more airplanes while the Russian wants to be more selective and preserve the element of surprise that has helped them shoot down almost sixty airplanes.  Both know that it is only a matter of time before the Americans find and attack the hidden missile base, but how and when? Josh Haman, a Naval Aviator and his friend Marty Cabot, the leader of SEAL Team Sierra Six, suspect a leak in the Navy’s secure communications system because it is the only explanation for the unexplained losses of Navy helicopters on deep penetration missions.  No one believes them until Cabot captures maps with the locations of their insertion and extraction landing zones already plotted.
