    just cause

    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.

    True To the bitter end

    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!!
