Vietnam Helicopter Pilot Continues to Tell His Story Through Audiobook

Brown Books Publishing Group author and Vietnam War helicopter pilot, Bob Ford, recently released the audiobook of his award-winning memoir Black Cat 2-1: The True Story of a Vietnam Helicopter Pilot and His Crew. Narrated by Ford, this version of his incredible story is available now on Audible/Amazon and iTunes.

In addition to the launch of his audiobook, Ford is the focus of the latest episode of Page Turners, the author spotlight show created by The Agency at Brown Books. Recently a featured speaker at the Honoring Our Nation’s Heroes event at the Frontiers of Flight museum in Dallas, Texas, Ford will be inducted into the Oklahoma Military Hall of Fame on November 3, 2018.

In the Vietnam War, 2,197 helicopter pilots and 2,717 crew members were killed. Black Cat 2-1 is the story of one pilot who made it home and the valiant men he served with who risked their lives for the troops on the ground. Bob Ford invites readers into the Huey helicopters he flew on more than 1,000 missions when he and his men dared to protect and rescue. For those whose voices were silenced in that faraway place or who have never told their stories, he creates a tribute that reads like a thriller, captures the humor of men at war, and resounds with respect for those who served with honor. Black Cat 2-1 is a #1 non-fiction bestseller and Oklahoma Book Award finalist.

With Veteran’s day approaching, this new audio version of Black Cat 2-1 will be of interest to history- loving listeners and readers everywhere. For more information, visit
