    • I could not put this book down as I was captivated by the story of John s experience in Vietnam I m mind blown by all he went through Great read


    • Growing up in the 60 s I saw this war through the eyes of news reporters and have always had the interest to learn about it from a person who had gone to war I loved the book, it was a quick, easy read with not too much gore, but just enough for you to remember it s about a war.


    • Excellent book,knowing it was written by this man s daughter gave it a sense of emotion that tempered it A most powerful read and I had read hundreds of books on this subject.I would recommend this book highly to anyone trying to understand and come to terms with what young servicemen went through during this period of history GREAT BOOK
