Synopses & Reviews
"This is one of the best reports on Vietnam published to date by a correspondent with a keen eye and a sharp pen. For those of us who served there, whether in a military or a civilian capacity, it will invoke a frightening, if not macabre, nostalgia for the sights, smells, sounds, and slaughter of Saigon. The book should be required reading for any politician who possesses the power to send us to war which is indeed Hell."
