Summary
Raw, hard hitting, not politically correct, as it was during the early years of the 1970's. See through the soldier's eyes his perspectives, as he takes you visually through his personal slice of the non-winnable Vietnam War. Feel his fear and euphoria from the mundane to the cracking sounds of AK 47 rounds zipping past his head. Meet the friendly creatures persecuting the Grunts daily, while on operations. Feel his feelings on the few rest days, trying to unwind. A must to read, if you want the feeling of a simple private soldier, living his own private hell.--Back cover
