My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I really enjoy Mr. West’s work. This book is written much like the documentaries that are produced by Ken Burns, focusing on the man in the trenches, rather than the strategic view of conflict that is typical of most historical books. Some of this book is really heart wrenching, particularly when the wives of men who died are writing about their lives after they lost a husband. I can’t imagine how horrific that was. I highly recommend this book to anyone studying the Vietnam War.
