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.
