This book looks at the Vietnam War from a new angle. While most books on the subject center around a battle or operation, this book introduces the central character as he comes of age and faces the draft. It stays with him through that process and his traumatic experience of Marine Corps boot camp. The work then follows him to Southeast Asia where his life is graphically chronicled and we get an amazingly candid look at the day-to-day war through the eyes of a young draftee. The toughest battles for most veterans of that war were fought in the mind. The severe mood swings from the deepest depressions to unbelievable highs kept combatants teetering on the edge of sanity. This book expertly exposes the emotional roller-coaster that threatened the stability of the mind. For the first time, you will understand why the Vietnam War was so damaging to so many veterans. Hundreds of thousands of young men served in the Vietnam War, each came home with a story--this book tells most of them. This fresh revealing look at the Vietnam experience is one you won’t want to miss.
