"What makes this book special is its honesty. The letters are real; there is no embellishment. You keep turning pages because you're finding out--for the first time-- who our Vietnam soldiers were and are." Sydney Schanberg
I bought this for an History class but kept it on hand later. I feel it gives an bird's eye view of what was really going on in Vietnam from the soldiers point of view, as well as what was really going on here at home.
