More About This Book

Overview

"The Vietnam Worm" is a collection of stories based on the actual experiences of the author and the men he served with. The central character is Sergeant Tom Danville, a man fighting not only the Vietcong, but the combat sickness, 'The Worm', that is slowly and secretly invading his brain. From cobras and man-eating tigers, to dealing with incompetent officers and booby traps, the book tells of the daily life of Danville and his men as they strive to survive not only the horrors of war, but the transition of returning home to a country that neither appreciated nor understood the suffering and sacrifices they had made.
The Vietnam War is all but forgotten now except by the thousands of men who were called and went, or volunteered because they truly believed it was the right thing to do. Many of these men still suffer now because they saw their duty and did it.

    This Booked helped me better understand the effects Vietnam has had on Veterans

    After viewing a couple of movies about the Vietnam War, I was interested in hearing, first hand, just what this war did to our young men who served there. The stories portrayed in the book were very well written and, I found that reading several different stories was a very interesting format for reading. I also appreciated very much that explicit language and gore was not included in this book. Though some of what I read was shocking to me, it helped answer questions for me.
