About the Author

Ronald Argo was born in Alabama. He graduated from the University of Georgia in 1968 with a degree in Journalism, and soon after went to Vietnam. After seven years writing for newspapers, he returned to university for masters degrees at San Diego State University and the University of Arizona in Tucson. His tour in Vietnam, 1970-71, spent in III and IV Corps as an army journalist, made for the genesis for this novel which otherwise could never have been as flavorful and true to place, time and events. He is the recipient of Sigma Delta Chi's journalism award for investigative reporting for a series on animal overpopulation in Southern California. Argo is the author of three other novels, including THE COURAGE TO KILL, THE SUM OF HIS WORTH and BABY LOVE. He lives with his wife in San Diego, where he is at work on another novel.

an unsung voice from the vietnam a fan of war literature, i'm surprised this book hasn't reached canonical status..i really enjoyed it and highly recommend it to anyone who is even marginally interested in psychology, political intrigue, wartime morality, and the malleability of the human soul...
