A Good Read
Throughly enjoyed this book. I served in Viet Nam from 1971 to 1972 and rode in convoys through the Hai Van Pass numerous times.
Having served in Viet Nam, I instantly got caught up in the story. Tragic characters and events abound. Much like the main character, I can't seem to get the place out of my mind.

Save your money
As a Viet Nam veteran, I found the author's disparaging remarks about soldiers who served in non-infantry roles offensive. We all had jobs to do over there. I spent six months running convoy security and four months as an infantryman. To me anyone who served there, whether they were in the rear with the gear or out pounding the bush deserves respect.
Further, this book needs some serious editing. Lots of repetitive statements. The narrator also was bad.

Excellent book! Couldn't wait to listen on my morning walk. Well worth getting just beware not putting it down.
