It was my privilege to have known Frank Johnson while serving with him in Vietnam. There were many times we set across from each other on our bunks and thanked God we were still alive. Frank indeed was a warrior and a man of great courage but there was also another side that was warm kind and gentle. A man that would take the time to listen to your problems, to help you when you were down and to support you when you needed a friend. This book is an accurate accountant of places and advents that took place as seen through the eyes of Frank Johnson. It is of great pleasure that I recommend you read this book. It is a colossal insight into what it was like for a 19 your old to have been exposed to the horrors of war. Burgess Wetta

It really is a diary. When I started reading it, I thought "Oh, sh**, I wont be able to drag myself through this". But after a few pages, I was hooked. Its a great look into the mind and daily life of a LRRP Ranger written as it happened with out the gloss-over typical for books written years after the events. Hard to put down for sure.

this is a very remarkable book that I found very hard to put down.this young soldier volunteered for the elite airborne rangers and was in some of the toughest combat and on top of that he risked his own life to save a fellow rangers life and on top of everything else he kept a daily diary so everyone else could get the real story. this young patriot for his love of country for his courage and bravery recieved several decorations including the silver star and 2 broonze stars and several other combat awards. this is a great gift for a friend or family member or soldier serving over seas.

This book is truly a treasure, written by a courageous man. I have passed it on to my college aged children, who appreciate the sacrifices as much as I do. Frank you are an american hero!

I found the book very hard to put down. As a Marine grunt in Vietnam one thing I knew was I would never volunteer for Recon. It took a special breed of men to do that and Frank Johnson was that special breed.

Another author from the famed 101st LRRP/Rangers of Vietnam. There must have been something in the water for the one-o-first to have generated so many great authors and books and Frank Johnson's surely ranks with the best of them. Mr. Johnson's book was a unique insight into the life of a 19-year old in Vietnam. I was there in mind and spirit as the young L Company NCO grew up. I sat ringside and was able to look into his mind and experience the thoughts, fears, and concerns of this young warrior. (Let's don't start comparing him to 19 year olds of his time or today) I'm sure Linderer, Martinez, Walker, Cox, Miller and the others must be proud to see the that the torch they lit was carried so well by Johnson an his teammates. If I have anything critical to say about the book it was that I would have liked to have seen some notes by the author. I wanted more details into what was going on around the events in his diary. What he did before he went overseas? When and why did he get busted (demoted)?. Maybe that will be the contents of his next book (Or maybe Mr. Wetta's?). You will write another, won't you Mr. Johnson?
