Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This honest, unflinching narrative presents the personal stories of the 25th Infantry--the division that inspired Oliver Stone's film, Platoon.

Synopsis:

"Extraordinary...recreates the Vietnam experience in visceral terms."—Col. Harry G. Sumniers, Jr., editor, Vietnam magazine.
