This book is a MUST for any one looking to delve deep into the Vietnam War without the glitter and nonsense. The author makes the reader see, feel, hear, smell and taste the war. Its easy to read format will appeal to the military history buff and novice, men and women alike. It is a unique book about a unique groop of men, the Marine Corps Scout Snipers. I laughed, I cried, I learned. If you are a Vietnam Veteran you will want extra copies for friends and relatives. Also recommend, In The Crosshairs, by Michael Lee Lanning and A Sniper In The Arizona, by John J. Culbertson.
