A unique, unvarnished look from the only British citizen serving in the U.S. Army in Vietnam
AN UNCONVENTIONAL SOLDIER
Born in England to a British father and a Canadian mother, James Walker was raised almost exclusively at the British Sailors Orphan Home following his parents' divorce. After joining the British army as a teen, his mother--now living in the States--bought his way out of the military and brought him to America. There he volunteered for the LRRP detachment of the 1st Brigade, 101st Airborne Division. And history was made.
James Walker soon became "Limey," the only British citizen in the 101st LRRPs. He and the other LRRPs of the detachment were given every sort of assignment under the blistering sun: long-range recons, surprise raids on villages, trail watching, even herding stray cattle with helicopters. Back in camp, however, they did nothing to diminish their reputation as hell-raisers--especially Walker, whose outlandish behavior eventually cost him an extension of his tour in Nam.
