Customer Review

on May 12, 2012
I was interested in reading this book in part because of its high rating, but also because it was written by an officer. Most of the accounts I have read so far were written by NCOs and privates. McDonough wrote his memoirs quite well. He comes off as a very patriotic and duty-driven soldier who really does care about the fate of those under his command. My only disappointment with this book is that there were very few moral ambiguities: I don't recall him questioning the "rightness" of the American presence in Vietnam. To me, it's what has made some books very interesting: intelligent or simply observant men questioning their orders to kill other men. Such as it was, the book was worth reading.
