Publisher's Summary

Among the best books ever written about men in combat, The Killing Zone tells the story of the platoon of Delta One-six, capturing what it meant to face lethal danger, to follow orders, and to search for the conviction and then the hope that this war was worth the sacrifice. The book includes a new chapter on what happened to the platoon members when they came home.


What the Critics Say

Unlistenable - The author speaks too slowly

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The author speaks unreasonably slowly, choppy, and deliberately. It is very unnatural, and is so distracting that I can't get through this book.

One of a kind story.

A remarkable book, and author. A true story of selflessness, realism, and bravery. No facts of the difficult lives these men faced were spared.
