    "A singular and marvelous work." -- The New York Times "Compelling . . . A thoroughly honest view of what the experience of Vietnam meant to a young college graduate, a 'gung-ho' lieutenant in the marine corps who enlisted for the 'heroic experience' of war . . . It is the most eloquent statement yet on what Vietnam was for the lower echelons who had to do the dirty work." -- Seattle Times "Heartbreaking, terrifying, and enraging . . . It will make the strongest among us weep." -- Los Angeles Times

Great!

by Glllorria on Apr 27, 2007

This is probably one of the best books I have ever read. Even though it deals with military cambat it's very easy to read and follow. I felt like I know so much more about what Viet Nam was like because of this book.
