Price: $7.99
Leaving his college deferment behind, this son of a WWII veteran enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1967, to help in the Vietnam fight. He was assigned to Officer Candidate School, became a 2nd Lieutenant and led a platoon in combat in 1969, when he was only 21. As the war progressed, the country’s enthusiasm and support deteriorated and upon his return to the U.S., the author discovered that his service wasn’t always respected as being patriotic and worthwhile. Over the years his interest in history prompted him to try to explain why. The Sun Sets On Vietnam describes his combat experience in a very personal way, and includes his own photos and watercolor illustrations. His reflections on the war have helped him resolve the experience.

    The Sun Sets on Vietnam describes a rarely mentioned aspect of combat, namely the endless hours and days in isolated firebases. This is the war as it was for a vast number of soldiers. Well written and honest, this book is an essential piece in the vast expanse of understanding the Vietnam war.
