U.S. Army Helicopter Names Volume 2 Second Edition is Brennan’s sixth book on Vietnam helicopters and the men who flew them during the Vietnam War. He is adept at preserving the naming and the artwork associated with the thousands of helicopters flown by the U.S. Army during this war which is symbolized by the venerable Huey. This book in its essence is a catalogue of names, those which yet survive, individual artwork as well as research resources. This book also has its unique insights from which units used artwork and which did not to personal photos shot of aircrew and their mounts. Not the least of these insights is the impressive poem written by Col. George Patton IV in remembrance and in leaving his C&C helicopter, Little Sorrel. Reading Brennan’s books, this one especially, one can’t help but think that he as well as Patton share the same love for their Vietnam helicopters.  U.S. Army Helicopter Names Volume 2 is a book for historians, libraries and specialists—though enthusiasts will also gain welcome understanding of this influential vehicle classes during the Vietnam War which shaped the asymmetric warfare of today.
