Overview

When the Williard brothers get going, any resemblance to a real war is purely coincidental. The Williards mix fun, flying and fighting, sex and silliness, medicine and madness and everything in between in their quest for adventure, right on up until the great Tet offensive. This epic battle marks their true coming of age.

"...I enjoyed this book and recommend it highly to anyone curious about medics in Vietnam during this period of time. Not one page was boring."
~ VVA Veterans Magazine

"Bain has a keen eye with a strong sense of place and he's able to realistically recreate the almost indescribable lunacy of the Vietnam war zone. All the smells, sights and sounds of the Far East come alive in this fast paced novel. From the dreariness and boredom of every day existence to the sharp and terrifyingly sudden violence of the Tet offensive, Bain's ability to transport you there never wavers. Readers who have never been there are treated to sights seldom seen by civilians. 'Nam vets will find themselves nodding - with a bittersweet smile as they turn the pages. It's all there."
~ Mike Hargraves for East Texas TODAY.

Editorial Reviews

Bill Riepe
"...Don't get the idea this is another of those clinical, pseudo-psychological studies of the tortured souls of men at war. It's a darned good story, with lots of action, including a riveting account of a fight near Long Bhin during the Tet offensive of 1968.

"With "Medics Wild" Darrell Bain has scored a remarkable achievement. He has crafted an anti-war novel disguised as a comedy. Well done, Mr. Bain, very well done indeed! Five Stars."
