Recently I had the opportunity to read two books by the Author John Rixey Moore. They are the most colorfully written and intriguing books I have ever read. These definitely need to be added to your Summer reading list!

Colorfully written? Say what? That's the same thing my husband said when I was describing how the author articulates his words. I have read thousands of books and I have never read anything like these two novels.

The author has the most unique way of telling a story.

A personal story of one mans trials and tribulations in Vietnam. The novel revolves around the author and only the author, no politics are mentioned, from the training ground to the deployment how he felt and what his fears were.

A hard hitting account of a soldier whose job is just to follow orders without question. The vivid and excellent descriptions of the living quarters and jungle environment paint a clear image in your mind of what the soldier is facing, making you feel that you are there
