5.0 out of 5 stars Roadrunner6, January 15, 2000
This review is from: Eyes Behind the Lines: L Company Rangers in Vietnam, 1969 (Mass Market Paperback)
I have read all of Gary's books, and find that he is a very good writer. I have cried, and laughed at the things he said in his books. I don't mean that I laughed at his books,but at the things he said , the way he said them. I also was with the LRRP/RANGERS (echo 50th /75th), and I know a little bit about what he was writting about. I have met Gary & I know that he is a truthful,& honorable man. So thats what make me say that all his books are the true meaning of the men he writes about. Roadrunner6 out

Hey Roadrunner 6,
Just because you met someone doesn't mean that you can get into their heads and discover wheather they are honest or not. If you "read all Linderer's books" do you seriously think that knowing about who fragged their new CO (Company Commander) in July 1968, because the CO was tasked with getting these men to act in a military fashion, and above all, get the men ready to start patrolling. Do you think PFC Linderer comparing himself to MOH Audey Murphy is a good thing? We all know PFC Linderer was medal-hungry, but ex-military personnel like you, beep-beep, with maybe two or three years in the Army do not understand a forged DD21 when you see it, nor do you understand military records. Read these links below full of military reports and you reconsider if PFC Linderer, is an honest man.

These links below should explain what is the difference between a fiction and nonfiction memior. You cannot call this work historical nonfiction because it is full of lies, no research whatsoever, and a hit-piece by thugs with too much time in the rear who thought only in terms of, "he said, they said, we heard someone else say in their BS story." Besides, that rumor mill in this marginal unit did cause someone to frag their new C.O. CPT James G. Shepard, remember? I forgot, PFC Linderer said it was the "Team Leader who was medal-hungry." Of course, the TL died on 20 Nov. 1968 by a friendly fire of artillery and cannot defend himself against this thug called PFC wannabe a Ranger Linderer.
