Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Miller served with the Army in Vietnam from 1966 to '72, winning the Medal of Honor and six Purple Hearts. Writing with Army captain Kureth he here discusses the attractions of combat: ``I loved it. I couldn't get enough.'' Miller is aggressively outspoken and repugnant about the business of killing (``Genuine killers are not to be confused with guys who simply spray the area and happen to kill someone'') and objectionably recalls that he nearly murdered his Vietnamese girlfriend for no particular reason (``To this day I'm not sure why I wanted to kill her''). After his Medal of Honor exploit his superiors consigned him to a psychiatric ward purportedly in order to remove him from the combat zone. Miller found peacetime duty almost unendurable (``My extensive combat skills and ass-kicking abilities were no longer needed'') but recovered his morale as an infantry instructor. He is still on active duty with the Army. (Apr.)
Library Journal
The Special Operations Group (SOG), a small unit that operated behind enemy lines during the Vietnam War, has gotten remarkably little historical examination. This memoir by Congressional Medal of Honor-winner Miller describes some of the actions of this unusual unit. Miller was sent to Vietnam in 1966, and once he discovered he was very good at combat, managed to remain there until 1972 when his status as a recipient of the nation's highest military medal (and hence a soldier to be protected from further hazardous duty) forced him back to the States. His exploits are disturbingly and vividly told, with the frank language and gruesome detail that is common to descriptions of close combat; there is an especially harrowing description of the action that got him the Medal of Honor. For students of the war there are many glimpses into the workings of the SOG. The book's sanguine tone somewhat mars recommending this for general readers.-- Mel D. Lane, Sacramento, Cal.

    The Late Franklin D Miller

    I love this book and had a hard time putting it down. Doug's account of combat and the life he lived is very differant from that of a civilian. It seemed like a was reading fiction. The things he did in his life are things that a normal human will never know or fully understand. This inclueds myself. This book takes you in to the war through his eyes. It shows how a 19 year old kid spends six years in combat in not only comes out alive, but as one of the most decorrated men of the war. What really makes this book great is the simplisity of it. It's almost as if you r dad or gramp is sitting next to you telling you what they did in the war, but much much cooller.
