Review by: Mimi Barrison on June 09, 2011 : star star star star
I received this novella as part of a LibraryThing member giveaway and I really found it both interesting to read and insightful.

I didn't know anything about the author, R.W. Holmen, before reading this Vietnam vignette, but I could tell from his bold figurative language and intense description, that this was written based on personal experience. The poker game metaphor really stresses the sometimes ironic nature of war, leaving us with the ongoing question, "Who is the enemy, really?" Very thought provoking and I look forward to reading the other installments of "LRRP Rangers Vietnam."

Thank you, Mr. Holmen, for giving me the opportunity to review your story...and with Memorial Day just around the corner, I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your service to our country!
