A compelling war tale told from a career Marine's perspective. What sets this apart from other war stories is the period in which it's set - the years between the Korean conflict and the US escalation in Vietnam. The author captures the spirit of that age; the characters and dialogue are authentic and believable. There's little self pity in the inner dialogue which is a refreshing change of pace from the many current war novels on the market. The characters, while not happy with the unholy politics that sent them into the bowels of the Mekong, react to their situations with courageous professionalism that is seldom seen in other novels. I enjoyed this historical tale very much.
