Want to know what Vietnam was really like?
Real stories and real people, in their own words, caught up in an all too real war. From the Delta to the DMZ, come walk in their boots.
This is volume 2 of a 4 volume series, but they are not just more war books. They tell the personal stories of 100 veterans, men and women, who served there. The Vietnam War dominated my generation and affected so many lives in so many different ways. Some of us were drafted. Some enlisted. Some became war heroes, intentional or not, but most of us were just trying to survive. As we all knew, Vietnam was all about luck, good or bad. And there were hundreds of different wars depending on where you were, the year you were there, your service, branch, unit, rank, job, and race. Whether we were truck drivers, helicopter pilots, infantryman, clerk typists, medics, engineers, MPs, sailors out on Yankee station, artillerymen, or cooks, from 1956 to 1976 from the Delta to the DMZ, these stories tell who we were, the jobs we did, our memories of that time and place, how it changed us, and what we did after we came home.
That’s the diversity of experience you’ll find in this book. If you were there, you understand. If you weren’t, grab a copy and you will. The stories are like Doritos. Try a few and you won’t be able to stop.
