Where is Crusader Rabbit Now That We Really Need Him? is a novel based on the author's experience as a platoon leader with the First Cavalry Division in Vietnam from 1969-70. It takes the reader on a journey through the jungles, through the eyes of very young infantrymen to the life of troops in the rear areas, where the comradeship of the field did not exist. The reader meets the young soldiers of an unpopular war, who were, in the end, as noble and courageous as American soldiers in every other war, and those who were interested only in advancing their own careers. The author draws on the journal he kept while in Vietnam and his letters home.

    "Where is Crusader Rabbit Now That We Really Need Him?" Mr. Millar realistically articulates the travesty of war from the prospective of a young American Army Officer during the very unpopular Vietnam War. However, war is apparently more "trendy" today when Mr. Millar was getting shot at. Soldiers of that time were pariahs, while soldiers of today are heroes. Mr. Millar describes the comraderie that develops among soldiers that are doing their best to stay alive, which is the same comraderie that troops have today in Iraq and Afghanistan. Throughout the book you see this trust among troops grow, under fire, and wane, when relegated to the rear echelon, where the self-described heroes build their pseudo legacy for their progeny. Reading this book served to rekindle the absurdity of war feelings that for me personally go back to that time, yet history are now repeating themselves again fail to understand the culture and intestinal fortutide of our opponents. We... More > were arrogant then, we are arrogant now. This book is a timeless record that will behoove our soldiers of the future to read and evaluate. It doesn't give you a warm and fuzzy feeling at the end, nor should it. War sucks and you may die and your families then must unwillingly enter the world of the living dead. Read the book and spread the knowledge that all soldiers, are heroes. Lastly, our heroes from Vietnam, who never got the respect they deserved, and the military heroes of today, lived in horrible conditions, risked death and their country still has not saved the world.< Less
