Among the best books ever written about men in combat, The Killing Zone tells the story of the platoon of Delta One-six, capturing what it meant to face lethal danger, to follow orders, and to search for the conviction and then the hope that this war was worth the sacrifice. The book includes a new chapter on what happened to the platoon members when they came home.

Really enjoyed this book. some great gripping moments and a book to give to you good insight into what it was really like for a soldier in the Vietnam war.

the voice was a little bland to start with but you get used to it.
