Overview

Meet the Williard brothers, the wildest, zaniest, most adventurous trio since The Three Musketeers. "Medics Wild," the first volume of a remarkable new humor/adventure series, takes place at the height of the Vietnam war.

When the Williard brothers get going, any resemblance to a real war is purely coincidental. From riding a six hundred pound beer-crazed hog through the streets of Binh Hoa, to jungle juice parties to end all parties, to regularly losing fifteen million dollar jets, 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, setting the stage for their future roles in civilian life, and prepares them for their next great madcap adventure. Wilder than M*A*S*H, a hilarious romp--but providing much food for thought about the military.

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."
Amazing Authors Showcase

Mike Hargraves
"The book gives an unflinching view of all the rear echelon craziness...You're taken on adventures that wind through the back alleys, bars and brothels of Vietnam to a medical unit under fire while on a humanitarian visit to a local village. 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. Reader's 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.

"None of us ever did things back in the world that we do over here..."
