    !

    This was a very good Viet Nam story. Haven't read one of them in a long time. Was a sad ending, but what can you expect from war.

    WOW! What an intense book. I have friends who were there and I

    WOW! What an intense book. I have friends who were there and I always thought it must have been terrible. But this author is so good at describing the situation and the people, the hopelessness, the despair, the fact that they knew they had no choice but to stay in the situation, that I felt like I was there and was feeling the despair myself.

    The book made me cry because I couldn't help but think about the ones who came out of there alive and were treated, not like heros, but like dirt when they came home. They were spit upon and called baby killers. They had gone through hell only to come home to abuse from their country they had fought for. The book really did touch me.

    In answer to some of the reviews, if I may, how can you say the plot was bad? The plot was what it was, duh! The language is right on also. If you had been there, you would have probably used the same language. They felt like God himself had forsaken them. I don't see how the story could have been written any other way. I personally loved the writing style. It is unique to this writer. I love seeing all types of writing styles.
