"The narrative is powerful, well-written, often hair-raising. It is energetic and sorrowful writing."

Robert Bly, National Book Club Award winner and author of #1 NY Times Bestseller "Iron John"

"Will Stone is an Everyman in search of the meaning of life amid the ravages of war. This author still remembers what every day was like in uniform. Whether it's puking troop ships, stinking latrine details, sandbagging or card sharking, KP's or LP's, downtown night life or jungle night watch, it's all here. If you really want an in-country view of young Americans with their lust for living and newfound skills in killing, here's a guy sure to give you an eyeful."

Jan Barry, co-editor of "Winning Hearts and Minds: War Poems by Vietnam Veterans"

"You need not go to war to appreciate the gut-wrenching tale of Will Stone in Vietnam. This is a book for anyone forced to face the sudden, devastating death of one near and dear. It is a universal story about choices we all must make if we are to live with noble purpose to the last."

Lorraine Ash, author of "Life Touches Life: A Mother's Story of Stillbirth and Healing"

"This is a timely exposition of the ordeal of the Vietnam War. Delving into the hearts and minds of a fictionalized forward observer squad, the author depicts in sometimes raw and frightful detail their innermost feelings and hopes, without detracting from the drama, poignancy and, at times, humor of their hardships."

Patrick F. Caruso, author of "Nightmare On Iwo: The Human Cost of Battle"

"Betrayal: Will Stone In Vietnam" brings back all the pain and passion of the Vietnam War - the divisions at home, the courage and bewilderment of the young soldiers, the tenacity and complexity of the enemy that confronts them.Some scenes are graphic and disturbing.a nightmarish chase through the jungle that leads to a confrontation almost too painful to bear. to be congratulated for presenting a balanced yet passionate portrayal of a war that changed us all.

Joan Morrison, author of "From Camelot To Kent State: The Sixties in the Words of Those Who Lived It"

"The story of Will Stone in Vietnam throws one into the turbulent cultural and political waves of the late 1960s via the travails of one American soldier who must learn to deal with racial turmoil at home, then the ghastly reality of jungle warfare in Vietnam. This story gets as hot as the jungle and the war it describes, leaving the reader to ponder age-old dilemmas: What is worth fighting for? What is worth dying for?"

John M. Del Vecchio, author of "The 13th Valley," "For the Sake Of All Living Things," and "Carry Me Home"
