    ONE OF THE BEST

    I have read all of Leonard Scott's books, I have gone through Basic Training and Airborne Training, He tells it like it is. Definately a no holds barred, action packed book with a very unique view from the enemy that gives the reader an idea about what the enemy is fighting for and what drives him. A great read every time.

    This was a pretty good book. The only thing was that it reminded me a lot about Ranger School!!! I'm pretty keen on his writing style, oh, that's an understatement, and The Hill is just as good!! I'm looking forward to more!

    Love the book

    My third time reading this book (first two were in paperback format). I love the book but dealing with mispelled words in the Nook version is discouraging. Can you say SPELL CHECK?

    Awsome book

    i recived this book while serving over sea's with the army in 1985. I will tell you it was hard to put down Scott's book, because he keeps you interested through out the whole story and he makes you feel your part of the unit. Scott also up keeps the ranger tradition alive and well. Hu Ra

    GOOD READER

    This is a very good book showing both sides of the Vietnam War. If I could change anything about this book it would be more action and less personal relationships. It's a good easy reader and worth every penny. I'll pass it on to a friend and order his other books in print.

    Scott puts the C in combat

    Leonard Scott is an author who takes me back to my time in Vietnam. His authentic descriptions and development of characters is commendable, and he never fails to write a page-turner of a book. Charlie Mike is a great read.

    made the class cry

    i read this book for a class project in my senior year in high school. the first page really gets your attention, from there on out your hooked. i ablolutely loved this book. i had to do a book talk in my class, while doing this talk, i almost made several students cry because of the report that i gave. i told about the intensity of the book, and how the author describes the characters. my teacher is now reading the book, and she is in love with it already. i would rocommend this book to all who enjoy reading about the war.

    Living a Little of His Life

    'Charlie Mike' came out while Col. Scott was commander of the Airborne School at Ft. Benning, GA in 1985. It hit the shelves while I was in the Airborne School - good for sales! I learned a little of what had gone on in the past to make the men who were teaching me to be a soldier. That helped me to give the very best performance of which I was capable. And Col. Scott, for all his heroism, was a genuine person - he came and talked and autographed our books for us. It was a privilege to work with a man who had experienced what he did. 'Charlie Mike' tells the story as it really was - no psychobabble, no facades, no phoniness. Just real men doing a real job.

    Be ready for the most intense book written about Vietnam!!

    This was the first book that I ever picked up outside of High School and it made me one of Col. Scott's biggest fans. This book has everything in it that you want in a book. It captures you from page 1 and don't let go even after it ends. This book leaves you wanting more! A must read for all military minded people.
