It could have been a lot more...
on November 10, 2011
I hesitate writing a review on this book because of a deep respect and appreciation for what our Veterans did for us in Vietnam. Over time I've read many, many Vietnam books and only a very few were not very good. The author of SitRep Negative did exactly what is described in the other two reviews. Not much action but then again there wasn't much story either. He joined the Army, got trained, became a radio operator, went to Vietnam, moved around some, went on R & R, and then came home profoundly altered. Add in frequent mention of his novel and you about have it. For 99 cent I got what I paid for but it seemed more like a teaser for his novel. Would have added a lot to the story if there were just a little action.
