He was a young American soldier - and the most powerful man in a remote rural District of Vietnam.

In the spring of 1969, First Lieutenant David Donovan arrived in the Mekong Delta of South Vietnam to work as military advisor with village chiefs and local militia to win the war.

But as he was the highest-ranking person in the entire district, his life there was far more complex than anyone could have imagined.

Excellent book, couldn't stop listening. A true warrior, soldier and man. Not only his experience during his tour, but also his personal struggles and admirations for the people of Vietnam he was fighting for. Also insights of his struggle after returning home. I Strongly recommend this book. Great narration.
