A good book...sure. The bible it aint. The blacks were not exclusive in doing the fighting in Vietnam. They were assigned, generally, based on their term of enlistment, just like the whites. No prejudice, no special treatment. In the platoons I served with during the 1968-1970 time frame, (0331-USMC) we had racial tensions. These feelings were generaly generated by the troublemakers who felt Whitey owed them although there were lifers who made ALL of our lives miserable. The majority of blacks, however, were good Marines who wanted to survive, do a good job, and get home in 1 piece. You may not like my comments but thats the way it was.Was this review helpful?
