A Top Secret Story of Unparalleled Heroism
Staff Sergeant Larry FitzGerald, aka “Reaper 6,” of the U.S. Army Special Forces, led a special Black Ops team deployed to Vietnam in 1965.
He reported to only two men: General Westmorland and General Abrams, who were in command of the U.S. Armed Forces. His first assignment—a suicidal mission to assassinate four enemy generals in Laos who were planning the 1967 Tet invasion—was never disclosed to the media or public.
General Westmorland stated that Sergeant FitzGerald deserved the Medal of Honor, and nine additional Purple Hearts, but unfortunately, most of his missions were conducted across the fence of South Vietnam, in Cambodia, Laos, and North Vietnam. In fact, all of his missions were classified, clandestine, and denied. They have not been told until now.
Reaper 6 is the only biography of this extraordinary soldier's life, capturing the very sights, sounds, and smells of the Vietnam War. Today, Larry is the proverbial “last man standing” of 89 souls who went where lesser soldiers shouldn’t dare.

With having read quite a lot of Vietnam accounts, this by far is the BEST book I've ever read. It takes you through the life of a SPECIAL FORCES team leader from the time he enlists to the very recent time of his life. The heroic account of this guys time in Vietnam is a must read. I could not put it down and was disappointed when it was finished, not that it was a bad read, but because this guy touched my heart!!!! I just wanted to know more from what is going on with him now!!! GREAT READ I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!
