Here is a riveting tale that illuminates the flip side of the fabled Vietnam generation: those who went.

"[A] terrific book about courage and cowardice, honor and betrayal, suffering and the death, and the indomitability of the human spirit." (Washington Post)
"[A]n amazing work that could make you cry over descriptions of bravery so bold and big....It is about the soul of a nation....This is a stunning book." (Boston Globe)
"[I]n Timberg's telling of their specific combat experiences, insightful angles on their subsequent careers emerge....A well-researched and well-written account of five interesting lives." (Booklist)
If it did not jump around the characters so much, chopping and changing made it hard to follow
cannot recommend it
"Revealing in scope and detail. This book was recommended to me by a good friend and history buff."
The revelations come not from the well researched findings but from the context of "seasoning" experienced by the 5 featured Vietnam vets.
It was thoroughly impressive and fascinating.
