Read in January, 1992 — I own a copy , read count: 3

Among the plethora of novel's written on the soldier's experience in Vietnam, this was the only one I've ever run across that I just couldn't put down. It grants the reader access to a world only vaguely understood by civilians via the evening news. In that regard, I would almost have to label it a classic war novel. Just insert a different cause and change the timeline and you've got a fairly accurate portrayal of what it was really like "over there".
A great read for the uninitiated. Even better for those who've ever known or loved someone that had to do real time in the military when war happened to be the theme of the day.
