    Forgotten Heros

    A fascinating character study of how an outstanding soldier and true leader comes to grips with the realization that the war he has been thrust into is far less than the 'noble conflict' our leaders have led us to believe. 'El Tee''s devotion to his men first and his country second makes him a true hero in my mind. SALUTE, 'EL Tee',for a job well done. May the deeds of you and your 'brothers' never be forgotten. A MUST READ

    I couldn't stop reading

    It's been a long time since I found a book that I was willing to lose sleep over. The humor and the sadness, mixed with the FEEL of the war,kept me spellbound. I would recommend this for Vietnam veterans as well as anyone who wants to experience the hell of war. Man, woman or mature child should enjoy this book.
