By January 1968, despite an influx of half a million American troops, the fighting in Vietnam seemed to be at a stalemate. Yet General William Westmoreland, commander of American forces, announced a new phase of the war in which "the end begins to come into view". The North Vietnamese had different ideas. In mid-1967, the leadership in Hanoi had started planning an offensive intended to win the war in a single stroke.

A wonderful book of personal accounts of war from both sides, the book really portrays the futility and waste of life of so many young men and women.

Phil Collins gained fame as both the drummer and the lead singer for Genesis and continues to enjoy worldwide success today. He's one of only three recording artists who have sold over 100 million albums both as solo artists and separately as principal members of bands - the other two being Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson.

No holes barred autobiography of my life long hero... Phil is very straight and tells wonderful story from early days as a jobbing drummer to megastar and all the good and bad events along the way. Definitely worth a listen or read!
