Editorial Reviews


The third instalment in Glyn Haynie's superb Vietnam War novella series is an altogether more action-packed addition. This time, Carter and the squad are out for full on retribution, hunting their traitorous former brother in the V.C.-infested Quang Ngai Province. Glyn's finest creative quality is his authenticity - being a Vietnam veteran, of course, gives him a tremendous insight and credibility, which can't be fabricated, yet he also has an unusual ability of taking his books down a formulaic path of fiction whilst still maintaining the mundane realism of a tour of duty in this unforgiving jungle: the fear; the development of young men's character; the foreboding natural elements. Another of his strengths is crafting engaging and endearing personalities, whom you feel.
The whole series has been top drawer quality, almost as good as Glyn's full-length 
"Promises..." series of novels, albeit in a smaller, more concise bundle. Breaking this overriding story arc into four novellas was a smart move, and gives each one credit as a standalone narrative, whilst offering the reader a wonderfully satisfying overall outcome. Furthermore, if you are interested in Glyn's work but have yet to read it, this series gives you a perfect example of what you can expect from him. A tremendously good read, definitely to be read in the right order, as the third in the series. My advice would be to set aside three short evenings to read these novellas; I defy you then not to be hooked on Glyn's work and move onto his feature-length books. Exciting and gripping, this is Vietnam War storytelling at its best. ~ ~ Matt McAvoy, Senior Editor MJV Literary

From the Author

As I authored this series, I drew on my own firsthand experiences of my year in Vietnam in my assigned Army unit: Alpha Company, of the 3rd Battalion, 1st Infantry Regiment, 11th Light Infantry Brigade, Americal (23rd) Infantry Division. I also revisited the experiences of some of the firebases and locations we patrolled.

I didn't write in the "real" context regarding the places or incidents from when I served. I wrote them from my experience and the times other veterans spent in that war to ultimately reveal what an infantry soldier went through and the things he thought as he survived his three hundred and sixty-five days.

With that in mind, I offer this book and the Andy Carter Vietnam War Series, not as a true story of the Vietnam War, but as a lens through which I hope you will be able to observe, with compassion and understanding, one infantry squad's day-to-day struggle with survival, conflict, and death.
