A HARD PLACE/A SERGEANTS TALE:vivid picture of what it was like to live and fight in the dense jungles of Vietnam as told with authority and authenticity of one who has been there and lived through it.
End to end,war in the eyes of a Sergeant,as it should be.This book isn't PC,no crusade on the morals of war,good story about what soldiers do when BS ends and action begins.Makes you feel you can actually see, hear, smell, and feel Vietnam
From the Author
After many,many years of contemplation and much urging from Family and Friends! I believe that I have written a rollicking good, rough and tumble war story about Vietnam. This is neither a history book nor an "After Action Report". This is not a story about serving in a line unit. It was and is a story about special soldiers in a "Hard Place". If you like war stories you will like this book. Enjoy! It is based upon my third tour in Vietnam as an NCO during the period 1970-72.
Update 2 feb 2011 The Second Edition (Kindle Version) just published is a rewrite and edit of the Revised Edition with some added material.After many comments about spelling and punctuation in the original versions.This edition is a bit longer and formatted better for the reader.The base story has not been changed.It is still an exciting and thrilling story about the Vietnam War,and serving as shadow soldiers in "A Hard Place". The papaerback second edition will follow as soon as I find a publisher for it. Jacamo
