THE NIGHT FIGHTERS series, about the United States Marine Corps' Combined Action Program in Vietnam, was published in paperback by Ivy Books, an imprint of Ballantine Books. The books have been out of print since the early 1990s. In 2012, I made all of them available again as ebooks. I have three other Vietnam War novels, There I Was; the War of Corporal Henry J. Morris, USMC, The Squad, and The Junkyard Dogs.

All of the novels are available botth as ebooks and in trade paperback (6x9 inch) format print-on-demand.

The Photographs are all mine.

Book 1:Knives in the Night

This book introduces the Marines of CAP Tango Niner and the Popular Forces of Bun Hou village, somewhere deep in "Indian Country." The Marines and Vietnamese soon find themselves pitted against Major Nghu, a sadistic North Vietnamese Army officer dedicated to wiping out the Marines and subjugating the South Vietnamese peasants.

Book 4: A Rock and a Hard Place

A North Vietnamese senior sergeant defects when he decides the Americans aren't fighting fair, and is captured by the Marines of Tango Niner. He tells about a secret North Vietnamese communications installation several miles west of Bun Hou, but American officials don't buy his story when he tells them why he defected -- he saw a muscle-bound guy coated with body oil, wearing a red headband and too-tight pants, and carrying an M-60 machine gun with its belt wrapped around his arm! The Marines and Popular Forces of Tango Niner are left to undertake a secret and unauthorized mission to wipe out the communications center themselves.
