Oh man, I had to stop listening after 3hrs - couldn't waste any more time. The story reads like a G rated, fiction novel. I never connected emotionally to the characters, maybe due to the narration. The narrator was a cross between Maxwell Smart and a newscaster. The language used did not fit the situation....no seasoned warrior in 1967 would say things like "Things are really dicked up", "I shot nine guys", "there are pissed off people in the tree line". They dropped f-bombs in war and said crude things...they called the enemy gooks. Somebody edited to the point of political correctness.
I just finished Dead Center by Ed Kruger and was hoping for a similar, visceral, emotional experience. A book that easily transports the reader/listener into the story. One I didn't want to end...the narration was unbelievable.

I would suggest this to anyone who is a fan of the military memoir genre . This book covers the most amazing story I have read yet . It pulls you in at every turn and does not like go even after it's finished. It shows you how exceptional one soldier and his effect can be. It is also an uplifting story teaching how much perserverence can really get us through.
