Audible Editor Reviews

The authors of the best-selling We Were Soldiers Once and Young revisit the Vietnam where they both served, the General as a battalion and brigade commander, the journalist as field reporter on four separate and extended tours. In somber and moving tones, Galloway describes how time has colored and cast shadows over the co-authors’ own gritty and vivid memories, as well as its effect on some of the soldiers they profiled in the earlier book. For this follow-up they also speak to Viet Cong military leaders with whom they had not previously been in contact to gather additional perspective on how the war changed individuals and how it continues to affect both America and the now-united Vietnam.

A must listen for lovers of history

This novel takes us back not only as an audience but as a nation. For those of us born at the end or after the Vietnam War; it gives a first had account of what both sides went through. For those of us whom lived through that time and even fought there; this novel could show how to get even further beyond that part of their lives. Being the offspring of parents that lives were forever changed by Vietnam; I hope it can answer questions for some, bring peace for others and help a nation further learn to heal.

Ps. to those who served throughout our nations past and will in the future; I hold nothing but the greatest respect. God Bless, Our Armed forces.

A Book That is Both Timely and Eternal

As a Vietnam veteran myself, I found LTG Moore and Joe Galloway's journey back to that land almost a surrogate for my going back myself. I have long wondered what the country is like now and I found their description both surprising and reassuring. I also found Moore's advice on leadership to be extremely sound and viable not only for soldiers in the field but for anyone in a leadership position. Finally, the epilogue left me literally in tears (I had to stop listening because I was, at the time, commuting on public transportation!) as LTG Moore paid moving tribute to the heroes in his life. I cannot recommend this more enthusiastically.
