Interesting and informative. I have heard and watched and read so much of the experience of the Americans during the Vietnam war, it was an illuminating experience to see this war from a different perspective. Gary McKay has a clear and precise writing style that doesn't leave any room for shuffling about. Skillful writing accompanied by a first hand account of extreme bravery makes for an interesting, mind-opening read.

Very informative view of the war, although some of the minute details about general army structure lost my interest, there was plenty to keep me turning pages until the end.
