Stumbled across this fictional Vietnam War gem. It's written by one who was there so it stands up better than some. The two main threads are about a new 2Lt with his platoon and the battalion/staff perosnalites with their career goals in mind. I found it to be a compulsive read and I found the scale maps at the front really useful. It put into perspective just how short a distance the platoon was covering over sucha long period of time. If you're stuck for a read I think it's worth the cash. Edited to add: Oops wrong forum. Can a Mod please move this to teh Book Club? Thanks.
