I served as an Infantry soldier with the 101st Airborne Division in Vietnam. Much, but not all of the contents deal with my day to day experiences encountered during my time there.
A good portion is a "bottoms up " perspective from my view as an enlisted soldier.
The firefights we engaged in were vicious, deadly, with little time to reflect and absorb the experiences at the time.
This book, to the degree it can, attempts to shed light and explain what went on.
For those on the outside, the Military might seem as one homogenous group, but you can rest assured - every soldier's story is different.
This is one of those stories.
