About the Author
"The "Story of the War in Viet Nam" would be totally incomplete without the inclusion of this work. We are all in James Strauss' debt for having told it so well."
Semper Fi, Do or Die, John Conway USMCR 68-72
"Few authors have the ability to "put you in the moment" as does James Strauss. Strauss never claims that but I have yet to read another book that took me back so completely. PhuBai 1968"
"One of the best narratives of what combat was like in the A Shau Valley after the Tet Offensive in 1968, For those who were there this book slams you back there, for those that weren't be prepared for the ride of a lifetime."--This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Semper Fi, Do or Die
John Conway USMCR 68-72
I was a squad leader not by choice but by survival after our squad was ambushed and 3 of us held off several NVA until reinforcements arrived.
Our platoon commander stayed held up in his tent at every ppb. (platoon patrol base) never in combat did he set foot but was killed during an assault which was pre-planned by the troops. All patrols were monitored by NVA so they always knew ware we were and going and waited on us. We as Marines changed our paths, found the enemy hiding and assaulted the likes. Low commishond Officers were as arrogant as they were green in hands on action. Most died. Semper Fi To all who survived. Now we all have to survive whats coming to our USA with whom we warned when we came home that are now our biggest problem. Stay Locked and Loaded.
LT. Strauss keeps your attention with each chapter. His ability to tell the story of the American Marine's contribution and sacrifices made in a God awful series of battles for valley in Vietnam Nam that few in the "World" could fathom is riveting! Only those that served could understand at the time. Those Vets have lived those recurring nightmares mostly feeling they were alone. Lt's manuscripts from his and his companies time in hell have touched many vets helping them to know they were not alone. This book is therapeutic for those that endured. These books should be required reading for all of our young Warriors in OTS (Officer Training School).
This book is a Riveting compilation of lessons of survival in crucible we called the Vietnam Nam War.
Sierra Hotel LT. Strauss! A great book!
While a naive Army enlistee 1972-75 I served with a number of folks that were in Vietnam at the height of the conflict. Fairly quickly I learned to discern who was for real and who was a paper warrior. The scenes in Mr. Strauss' book mirror accurately the accounts of those that had been there (the few that would talk about it). Suffice to say most accounts I heard support the often petty, confused & often irrational orders and battle plans depicted in this book.
A great read, you'll not regret the experience of reading this account of the Vietnam experience. Once you start reading it's likely that, like me, you won't be able to put it down.
