What's a LURP ?

Incredibly well written book about life in Vietnam as a LRP. After reading several books on life as a soldier in Vietnam this book really hit home about the truly terrifying everyday activities of a soldier. Long Range Patrol was definitely the scariest outfit in the military you could sign up for. They were all volunteers absolutely the bravest men to come down the road. If the Vietnam conflict interest you this book is a must read !

One of the best Vietnam era books I've read. Not a lot of the political back biting that, although factually accurate, weighs the story down. A story about great people doing heroic things in horrible circumstances.
