As a Marine Corps infantryman who served in Vietnam as a machine gunner, this author brings home to the uninitiated the horrors of combat. I highly recommend this book if you want a full understanding of what the Grunts endured in a war that our government had no intention of ever winning due to political unwillingness. There was no plan to win, when you fight for the same real estate time and time again, all our government did was lead patriotic young men to the slaughter and kept the fat cat businessmen wealthy. The Brave soldiers in this book are my Brothers, I know first hand what they went thru. We were mistreated by our countrymen when we returned home and blamed for this Foley and total waste of lives for nothing. Worse yet, our own government who sent us turned their backs on us , but had no problem sending us. I feel a bond with these men, I salute them and think of all the killed in action and the maimed for life and pray for them and their families. God Bless them all. Semper Fidelis.

adn't read a Vietnam era book in ages and this one will take you for a brutal and unrelenting ride. brutality of war abounds in this book and demonstrates the bravery of the Americans who served and died in that conflict. Highly recommended

The narrator takes you into the jungle and some of the scenes leave you chilled. Gripping but also really educates you on what it was like to be there.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
it was an interesting story with filler none story's in between. but very simpler to others about Vietnam
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Killing Zone?
when the enemy showed himself
What didn’t you like about Barry Press’s performance?
nothing, the narrator really let the book down. it was like he had no idea what word was coming next and said words in away that you thought it was the end of a line then it carryed on. very poor
Could you see The Killing Zone being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?
yes it could be
