Warr has accumulated eyewitness accounts, coupled with his first-hand experience of the events in which Charlie One Five was involved. This is not the author’s opinion; it is factual, emotional, and raw information that a serious student of history will value. He didn’t learn this, he lived it. –Lt. Col. Richard L. Bianchino, USMC (Ret.)

3 Great Marines.. i remember that night the South Korean Marines fired motar rounds on our position..this Marine we called Frenchie and i can't remember the other marine name he had a head shape like a very big light bulb. we were going to set up for the night another Marine i sat on the ground with our backs against a old stucco building..Frenchie and bulb walked about 30ft from us to a pond..next thing we were getting incoming..i heard frenchie curshing as loud as the morter sheels that hit us he was really out of it..Frenchie was a tough Bar toting Marine liked by everyone.. dont know what happen to him after the chopper medvack him out..buld head was dead blowed the top of his head off...could see his brains glitter from the moon ligjt.i also remember when the short motar round went thru tent and blowed marine head off..if you a vietnam vet this is a great read Or if you a combat vet period this is a good read. .even if you didn't go to war this will give you some insight of what we went through.
Yet events I witness in combat, on patrol and when on break helped me later in my life. And continue till today to serve as a roadmap of how an honorable man is suppose to behave.
I have the deepest respect and appreciation for the 1/5 officers, noncommissioned officers and men I served with. In the most difficult of times and most adverse of conditions they showed the courage and honor - true selflessness and concern - for their brother Marines and even an inexperienced Corpsman.
Nicholas Warr has performed a great service for those who served in Vietnam and their families and friends. But also for future generations to have a source of history of how Marines maintain their integrity in an unpopular, dirty and confusing war. A war fought by Marines, hero's all, who depended upon each other not only in combat but also for emotional support and encouragement during the down times.
I appreciate what Nicholas Warr has done in authoring this book. I am please to provide this review.
