This is a great narative of a combat marine with the 3rd Bn 5th Marines in Vietnam. While I did not serve with Paul, I did serve with India and Mike Companies 3/5. I joined Mike Company after being wounded and medevaced with India just after Paul rotated stateside. We continued to hit the same aareas as described by Paul in his book. I found his descriptions very accurate and took me back in time just as if it were yesterday. Paul was a hell of a combat Marine, but had problems (as he describes) with his peacetime Marine Corps transistion. I highly recommend this book to any Vietnam enthusiasts and to anyone who served with 3/5.
