Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An exciting, eye-catching repackage of acclaimed author Walter Dean Myers' bestselling paperbacks, to coincide with the publication of SUNRISE OVER FALLUJA in hardcover.

A coming-of-age tale for young adults set in the trenches of the Vietnam War in the late 1960s, this is the story of Perry, a Harlem teenager who volunteers for the service when his dream of attending college falls through. Sent to the front lines, Perry and his platoon come face-to-face with the Vietcong and the real horror of warfare. But violence and death aren't the only hardships. As Perry struggles to find virtue in himself and his comrades, he questions why black troops are given the most dangerous assignments, and why the U.S. is there at all.

Synopsis:

This 1989 Coretta Scott King Award winner is the story of one young man's tour of duty in Vietnam as well as a testament to the thousands of young people who lived and died during the war.

Synopsis:

Richie Perry, Lobel, Johnson, Brunner, and Peewee are all in Vietnam. They came there for different reasons, but now they share a single dream — getting out alive.

i liked this book because it shows how the Vietnam war was like for a person in a war like that of the current war. I would recommend this book with high regards and for any one, even though their is some vulgar language and adult situations.

This is a good book. We are reading it in History. It really shows wht it was really like to be in war and how bad it was. It doesn't just say how it was for those staying at home it really went in to say how it was for those in the army.
