  "Essential reading. Gives insight on impact of war on those who fight. Written by Vietnam War vetern. Had similar impact on me as reading 'All Quiet on the Western Front' 30 years ago." by mzwomen (see profile) 12/09/07

 
  "Like no other book on Vietnam I've read. Graphic, but necessary." by kulagunter (see profile) 10/22/09

 
  "a good read" by showchoirnerd (see profile) 06/15/10

I had this as a text book for a class I took a number of years ago on the Vietnam War. I have to say that I genuinely enjoyed this book. It talks about the things soldiers carry to war with them, both tangible, and intangible.

This is an important book. Readers young and old are challenged and potentially benefit from wrestling with the idea of what the author calls Story Truth vs. Happening Truth.
