There are parts of this I wasn't a big fan of but once I started to dig into it, it worked more and more. I went into this book hoping for a deeply researched documentary on WHAT REALLY HAPPENED to Flynn and Stone when they disappeared but what I got instead was a series of flashbacks and memories and plain ol' life stories of both these people and the author.

Decided on a quick re-read because of the film coming out this fall/winter. This should be 3.5 for me and likely higher if I hadn't read so very many VN memoirs/stories. It's worth reading, and gives a different perspective than the numerous military accounts. Pair with Dispatches, perhaps, but expect more from Herr.

On 6 April 1970, the photojournalists Sean Flynn and Dana Stone rode up to a roadblock in Cambodia on a pair of red Honda motorcycles, and were never seen or heard from again. This is a compelling and moving story, that is as much about friendship as it is about war. Well worth reading.
