A Book That is Both Timely and Eternal

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 04-04-09

As a Vietnam veteran myself, I found LTG Moore and Joe Galloway's journey back to that land almost a surrogate for my going back myself. I have long wondered what the country is like now and I found their description both surprising and reassuring. I also found Moore's advice on leadership to be extremely sound and viable not only for soldiers in the field but for anyone in a leadership position. Finally, the epilogue left me literally in tears (I had to stop listening because I was, at the time, commuting on public transportation!) as LTG Moore paid moving tribute to the heroes in his life. I cannot recommend this more enthusiastically.
