by Pierre (Pete) Major

Overview
This book was born out of my reconstructing in print the memories from my time in Vietnam. The pictures I took while there were stolen just prior to my leaving Vietnam. That theft was a source of frustration to me for a long time, in hindsight, the words contained in this book now hold more weight for me than the stolen film.
Description
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.
About the author
