Overview

"The best Vietnam War novels yet for this age range." - KIRKUS REVIEWS

Ivan has never backed down from a fight - especially when it comes to fighting for what's right. Now, as war erupts in Vietnam, he wants nothing more than to fight for his country as a soldier in the US Army, just as his father did in World War II.

But Vietnam is not the war Ivan was expecting. Glory does not come so easily in the jungle. And for the first time, Ivan is forced to question what he's really fighting for . . . and whether it's a fight he can hope to win.

This book series is about four best friends Morris Rudi Ivan and beck going into each military branch and them telling you their stories in four different books witch are all very good in my opinion but this book in particular is about Ivan who joined the army. after excelling basic training and After seeing military occupational specialty and on-the-job training he then was put into the AIT. After stepping off the plane he headed onto a bus and got dropped off on the USS beneath this book has a very good plot and it’s a little slow at first but gets faster during the first quarter of the book and stays about the same for the rest. Since he’s a sniper he doesn’t see a ton of close-up action but that doesn’t change how much I like this book.

Chris lynch does an awesome job of portraying the conditions and life of vietnam This book kept me hooked until i finished, and then i reread it twice Lynch gives much credit to the m21sws that it deserves, the m21 is truly a legendary rifle and is still the best of its kind
