 A moving and unforgettable account of one soldier’s experiences during the Vietnam War

This is the thoughtful, action-packed memoir of one American soldier’s combat tour in Vietnam in 1970. It opens with a tense ambush patrol and doesn’t let up through a year of hair-raising night watches, soggy humps through the jungle, and deadly encounters with the North Vietnamese. The author served as a rifleman, machine gunner, tunnel rat, and demolitions man with the U.S. Army’s 25th “Tropic Lightning” Infantry Division and the 1st Cavalry Division. His memoir focuses on the experiences of the men on the ground in Vietnam and the realities of combat, and the result is moving and unforgettable, one of the very best in a crowded field of Vietnam War memoirs.

 

It's a remarkable story of incredible bravery and courage that prevailed in spite of being ordered to undertake exhausting nighttime missions, exposure to certain enemy surprise attacks that killed or maimed comrades, only to be repeated nite after nite. The author's account of nearing his own breaking point and near-mutiny after his best buddy is killed in an ambush, and the company commander's level-headed handling of the incident, reinforces this reader's admiration, and appreciation of these brave men, and demonstrates the remarkable character, loyalty, and patriotism of those that served then , and now in our armed services.
