An exceptional book documenting a 'grunt's' view of Vietnam. Brutally honest and emotionally charged by personal fears and detailed accountings of individual sacrifices. Fortunate Son was a Marine by birth and a Platoon Leader by choice; he did an exceptional job of telling his story about his famous father, their relationship together, his tour in Vietnam and his rehabilitation back to his familly.

An excellent autobiography which quite appropriately received the Pulitzer Prize for Biography. . In it, Lewis B Puller Jr. relates his very strenuous recovery and rehabilitation from horrific wounds suffered from a booby trap explosion in Vietnam. It is a well written, poignant documentary of one young man' s difficult but fulfilling life though wheelchair bound.
