    Amazingly honest and tragic

    I thought I knew about the war in Vietnam but after spending 2 weeks in country, I realized how very wrong I was. I visited a lot of the places Mr. Podlaski describes in his book. Reading about his experiences after being there causes such strong mental images that it literally takes my breath

    Must read for Vietnam Vets

    I will echo other reviewers in stating if you are looking for an exceptionally written novel with character development and a progressive theme, then this is not the book for you. However, if you are looking for a GREAT historical fiction, which brings to light the terror, sacrifice, and heroics of the Army field troops during the Vietnam War, then you need to read this one. John Podlaski took his personal experiences serving as an Army draftee and told a story that enlightened the reader to the realities of the Vietnam War. It is told from the viewpoint of the ground troops (Grunts) expounding on the personal terror for daily survival. We now know Vietnam was a political war where the military commanders were required to put their troops in reckless jeopardy to satisfy the demands of the leaders in Washington. This book brings to light the grotesque reality of the Vietnam War. A must read for any Vietnam Veteran.
