An Essay About the American Vietnam War Veteran

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. This is a bit dated but it is making the rounds again over here and I think it worthy of republishing, especially for those ARRSERs who have expressed curiosity about the American Vietnam War veteran. I also hasten to add that it is by a Vietnam veteran who is now a politician with whom I disagree on a number of major issues but who has certainly earned the right to speak his mind:

  2. I'll have a look in a moment. Fields of Fire is one of my top ten war novels. Superb read.
  3. Well written essay about a subject which isn't addressed very often. Didn't even know Webb had become a politician so know nothing about his policies.

    Read Fields of Fire until it fell apart, also read A Sense of Honor and A Country Such as This. Great books.
  4. A good essay. I also didn't realise Webb was a politician. A damned good author though!
    Cheers JJH!
  5. Thanks JJH,
    I didn't know about the last three novels till I read your post, I just ordered all three from amazon, thanks again!
