    This third book in the "Vietnam" series follows another young man, Rudi,  from the group of four best friends; the book works well as a stand-alone.  Rudi is drafted as a Marine and believes in the cause and in the Corps.  Although disallusioned when he realizes that many of the Marines in his unit bend the rules and don't follow orders, Rudi finds strength he didn't realize he had to soldier on and do the right thing.  There is violence appropriate for the combat setting and a good look at the psyche of soldiers under pressure and under fire.  Great historical fiction for teens.

    This is the third in a series about a young marine in Vietnam. The setting of book three is toward the middle and end of the war.

    Rudi is a marine who thrives on the adventure and “belonging” he finds as part of the Marines. He has to deal with many difficult situations but finds security in submitting to his superiors. Through his experiences in Vietnam he grows and conquers many fears.

    Vietnam is a well written book giving the reader a view of some of what a Marine faced during the war. The book does not concern itself too much with the policies of the war but more with the story of one Marines’ views and struggles. (reviewed A.Freeman)

    Author: Chris Lynch is the author of numerous acclaimed books for middle-grade and teen readers, including the Cyberia series and the National Book Award finalist INEXCUSABLE. He teaches in the Lesley University creative writing MFA program, and divides his time between Massachusetts and Scotland.

    DISCLOSURE: A complimentary copy of Vietnam: Free-Fire Zone was provided by Scholastic in order to facilitate an honest review. Opinions expressed are solely those of the reviewer and there was no imposed obligation to render a positive review.
