    When it first appeared, A Rumor of War brought home to American readers, with terrifying vividness and honesty, the devastating effects of the Vietnam War on the soldiers who fought there. And while it is a memoir of one young man's experiences and therefore deeply personal, it is also a book that speaks powerfully to today's students about the larger themes of human conscience, good and evil, and the desperate extremes men are forced to confront in any war.

    Howard says: "Howie"
    "Excellent First Person Narrative"
    Overall

    Wonderfully read first person account of a young Marine officer in the early days of the Vietnam War. For us history/military fans, it is a nice break from the dry Generals perspective, to what it is like to be a grunt in the field. Worth the buy.

  • A Bright Shining Lie: John Paul Vann and America in Vietnam

    Sheehan's tragic biography of John Paul Vann is also a sweeping history of America's seduction, entrapment and disillusionment in Vietnam.

    Overall

    Loved this account of both the ugly and the heroic men and decisions that shaped the policy in Vietnam, and what led to its final doom. I very much enjoyed how Sheehan showed Vann as an imperfect man with good intentions. A little long in parts, but well worth it.

  • The Ultimate Battle: Okinawa 1945: The Last Epic Struggle of World War II

    The Ultimate Battle is the full story of the largest land-sea-air battle ever waged by the United States, a battle whose staggering casualties and take-no-prisoners ferocity led Truman to drop the atomic bomb on Japan. From April through June 1945, more than 250,000 American and Japanese lives were lost, including those of nearly 150,000 civilians who either committed suicide or were caught in the crossfire. This book tells a gripping story of heroism, sacrifice, and death.

    Ron says: "Takes you into the mud and death"
    "Best book on Pelilu yet"
    Overall

    Don't miss this book if you are into military history. Sloan brings to life the heroic men of the Marines of K 35 as if you were there with them.
