    Not a factual book

    The following is stated on the cover of Gary Linderer's books: "Gary A. Linderer is the publisher of `Behind the Lines,' a magazine that specializes in U.S. military special operations. In Vietnam, he earned two Silver Stars, the Bronze Star with V device (for Valor), the Army Commendation Medal with V device, and two Purple Hearts. His first two books were selected by the Military Book Club." <BR/><BR/>Gary Linderer has consistently claimed to have earned two Silver Stars and two Purple Hearts, all for the same day's combat in Vietnam, on 20 November 1968. He used these high honors to enhance his professional reputation and credibility as an author and his fitness to be consulted as an expert on LRP operations. Records I obtained in 2000 by FOIA request from the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis, MO., refute Mr. Linderer's claims of two Silver Stars and two Purple Hearts for the same day's combat actions of 20 November 1968. Because Mr. Linderer has lied about his medals, according to the NPRC records, then readers have to view everything Mr. Linderer writes in his book with a skeptical eye. The text of Linderer's NPRC record is as follows: <BR/><BR/>National Personnel Records Center Military Personnel Records <BR/>9700 Page Avenue, St. Louis, Missouri 63132-5100 <BR/>OFFICIAL LIST OF AWARDS The Official Military Records of GARY A. LINDERER [SSN removed] show that he is authorized the following awards and decorations for his service in the US Army: <BR/><BR/>SILVER STAR <BR/>BRONZE STAR MEDAL W/FIRST OAK LEAF CLUSTER AND "V" ARMY COMMENDATION MEDAL <BR/>W/FIRST OAK LEAF CLUSTER AIR MEDAL <BR/>GOOD CONDUCT MEDAL NATIONAL DEFENSE <BR/>SERVICE MEDAL <BR/>VIETNAM SERVICE MEDAL W/4 BRONZE SERVICE STARS <BR/>COMBAT INFANTRYMAN BADGE <BR/>REPUBLIC OF VIETNAM CAMPAIGN RIBBON W/DEVICE (1960) <BR/>REPUBLIC OF VIETNAM GALLANTRY CROSS W/PALM UNIT CITATION BADGE SHARPSHOOTER <BR/>BADGE W/RIFLE & MACHINE GUN BARS EXPERT BADGE W/AUTO RIFLE BAR <BR/>////////NOTHING FOLLOWS///////////// <BR/>R. L. HINDMAN, <BR/><BR/>Director <BR/><BR/>The war stories written about are made up, false and lies.

    more from this reviewer

    Way too much complaining for my taste.

    Full disclosure here: I only read the free sample on my nook. I havn't bought the book and wont for this reason:

    In the first 20 or so pages the author complains about the army, the country, the equipment etc. I can't take that. The title of the book is "The Eyes of the Eagle", not 'Gary Linderer need to get a bunch of crap off his chest.'

    I've read other books by this author and was not disappointed. I've read many other Vietnam era books and some are well written remarkable journeys through the jungles and rotting swamps of the 'Nam.

    I deeply respect the authors service and sacrifice but I won't by this book.

    Tells it like it was

    My father is a Vietnam Vet. But like many others, it is hard for him to talk about many of the things he saw over there. I've always grown up admiring my father, and wanting to learn more about the war. This book is by far one of the best out there. I'd say it was the best, but I can't because Gary Linderer's other books are just as great. Along with his comrades that wrote books also. Reading these books are like an addiction. You can't put them down.

    The fourth hand up!?

    I've read lots of books about Viet-Nam. Mostly historic types and others by 'we should'nt have been there' authors. I wanted a book about 'how it was' written by some one 'who was there'. Iwas at B&N looking one day and saw this book;I thumbed through it,loked at the pictures and read the Authors bio.(it was the picture of tiger and lurp that sold me) I got home and started reading. I read it. Re-read it. Then handed it to my room mate saying'Dude you gottta read this!' He did,then went out and bought a copy. I've read this book and loaned it out so many times that I had to buy another copy! This the book I was waiting for. A true stories book writting by a true Viet-Nam Vet. The book is very well written;it makes you feel like your there and like you personaly know the people in the book. I'ts so realistic that you duck when the shooting starts. Buy this book; go home find a comfy chair. once you start reading you won't want to set it down. The best part is this is just the first part of Linderer's story. His tour finishes in his next book EYES BEHIND THE LINE. Feel free to E-mail me and tell me what you thought.
