Most Helpful Customer Reviews
A product of the 60s, the horrors of Vietnam are still fresh in my memory. This book really puts into perspective the terrible atrocities commited during this war. On both sides. Hatred for the enemy, and the enemy's hatred for us explodes on the pages of this heart wrenching story. It is not for the faint of heart. America should never get involved in Civil Wars and this book really puts into vivid focus the reasons why.
