    Powerful and perfect

    Once in a very long while comes a book that is a single amazing achievement. This book draws you into its world and vibrates in your mind like marbles in a jar as you read. David Maraniss accomplishment is totally overwhelming in it¿s detail and depiction of every mans perception of truth. Told with an honest tone and little noticeable bias his story sums up years of protest and war. I often mention my favorite book of all time (non-fiction) is Neil Sheehan¿s, A BRIGHT SHINING LIE. A book that simply explains the unexplainable reasons of Vietnam through the telling of the life of John Paul Vann. Now Maraniss expands the canvas, viewing the Vietnam experience through the eyes of a multi-character epic. Just by telling the story of the people and places all one month, October 1967. It is pitch perfect, sad, wonderful, ugly, glorious, and so wonderfully written that I defy you to turn away. I can not recommend this more highly. One of the great books defining the Vietnam era experience.

    This is a great book. Not only is Maraniss a very good story-te

    This is a great book. Not only is Maraniss a very good story-teller, but he wonderfully synthesizes the connections of events occuring thousands of miles apart in October 1967. His ability to describe human emotion and behavior, along with the impact of chance and history makes for fascinating reading.

    Poor quality ebook.

    I have been having a lot of trouble with the ebook. The bookmarks don't work and getting back andd forth from other parts of my Nook is difficut. I have seen this trouble in free books but not one I paid for. Too bad, the book is good, just frustrating.

    One of the best!

    This is one of the best books I've ever read. Being a part of the sixties I realize how much I had forgotten. This book, excellently researched and beautifully articulated, helped me remember.
