If you like a good, solid mystery with unexpected twists and turns, you will like Legacy of War. But this book is much more than a mystery. You will learn about the history and culture of Vietnam and how the war there affected the people on both sides. You will also learn more about the complexity of human nature. Mr. Marohn is a Vietnam veteran--when he describes the jungles, the battles, the mud and insects, you feel as if you were there. He has meticulously researched both the history and the ...more

I always enjoy a book with action and this one certainly had that. But what was unique about this book for me was the insight it provided on PTSD that so many veterans carry with them throughout their lives, even though they may not show it on the surface. This book really had it all: an engaging plot, relatable characters, and insight into human emotions that made me feel empathy. Really, really good read.

That is welcome news, and I look forward to reading about additional adventures. If you are a fan of Frederick Forsyth spy thrillers, you'll definitely enjoy Legacy of War. ...more

War and romance

I discovered this book when a copy was sent to an influencer I follow - what a great novel! A little bit of romance, a little bit of sadness, some conflict and journeys afar. Very well written story!

I literally felt those last pages of John Moore's struggles through the quagmire of brutal memories as he tried to keep himself and Heiu alive. I understood Nam on a level I never felt before. ...more
