Ted Wilson's first book is a semi-autobiographical return to the horrors of the Vietnam war.His narration takes us on a journey through not just the oft accounted horrors of this war but also the blatant cyncism of the politicians that fuelled the conflict and the corrosive corruption that all but destroyed any possibility of victory. Wilson's ability to narrate the intensity of combat, and yet counterpoint it with telling descriptions of everyday life going despite the war, is startling. The book can be read in many ways, but in the end it is a gripping read that takes the reader beyond any other book of its genre.
