Charlie Rangersby Don Ericson, John L. Rotundo
They were the biggest Ranger company in Vietnam, and the best. For eighteen months, John L. Rotundo and Don Ericson braved the test of war at its most bloody and most raw, specializing in ambushing the enemy and fighting jungle guerillas using their own tactics. From the undiluted high of a "contact" with the enemy to the anguished mourning of a fallen comrade, they experienced nearly every emotion known to man--most of all, the power and the pride of being the finest on America's front lines.

my name is Sgt. Butch Jenkins, and I'm looking to contact any of my brothers that were with Charlie Rangers.704-852-9366. Thanks, Charlie mike
This is a great book for the hardcore war fan. Very detailed from the war to the actual feeling of making a contact with the enemy. Don and John do an increble job as they tell their story from their point of view; eighteen year olds joing the war to see it firsthand. They go from basic to special forces and then to finally Charlie Rangers, on of the most elite forces in the army. As the book goes on each mission is very detailed and described. So dont miss out on this exciting book, you get hooked after the first two pages!!
When were u last on
There is no doubt of the bravery and skill of these rangers. Unfortunately what comes across the strongest for me is a contempt for the Vietnamese, whether ally or adversary. I can't help but feel that this was an underlying contributing factor to the loss of the war. Which was sad for the south and their allies.
