)-- Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Reaper 6 by Andrew J. Rafkin. The author's most recent book to date is a 6 x 9 paperback in the Vietnam war military history category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/reaper6 was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.
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 Westmoreland 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 the public. General Westmoreland 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 disclosed 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 eighty-nine souls who went where lesser soldiers shouldn’t dare.
259 pages in length, Reaper 6 is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Vietnam war military history category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Reaper 6 meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $14.95.
Additionally, Reaper 6 can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press Direct bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore.
Format: 6 x 9 paperback cream
