"When you expect peace, prepare for war!"
However, the author asserts, there is no amount of preparation that can adequately make one ready for the madness of it all, whether he emerges as a winner or a loser. Nor can anything prepare survivors for the aftermath of such experiences that continue to impact them long after the guns fall silent.
Dien Khanh relays the story of Regis's first tour of duty in Vietnam. Told in his trademark conversational style, the book engages the reader. The unbelievable horrors of war are revealed as seen by men who were there, and told with incredible honesty and even a touch of humor.
A terrific read for veterans, students of history, family of those who served, or anyone who enjoys a first person account of intense action and events.
