Publisher's Summary

Call Sign Dracula provides an outstanding, valuable, and worthy in-depth look into the life of a US Army Infantry soldier serving with the famed 1st Infantry Division (The Big Red One) in Vietnam. It is a genuine, firsthand account of a one-year tour that shows how a soldier grew and matured from an awkward, bewildered, inexperienced, 18-year-old country bumpkin from Kentucky, to a tough, battle-hardened fighting soldier.

You will laugh, cry, and stand in awe at the true-life experiences shared in this memoir. The awfulness of battle, fear beyond description, the sorrow and anguish of losing friends, extreme weariness, the dealing with the scalding sun, torrential rain, cold, heat, humidity, insects, and the daily effort just to maintain sanity were struggles faced virtually every day. And yet, there were the good times. There was the coming together to laugh, joke, and share stories from home. There was the warmth and compassion shown by men to each other in such an unreal environment. You will see where color, race, or where you were from had no bearing on the tight-knit group of young men that was formed from the necessity to survive. What a bunch they were!

...then the return to home and all the adjustments and struggles to once again fit into a world that was now strange and uncomfortable.

Call Sign Dracula is an excellent and genuine memoir of an infantry soldier in the Vietnam War.

Powerful!

The author has made it possible for the reader to experience what he and so many other men actually lived. His 1st person account of his experiences helped me to understand how it truly was in Vietnam. I recommend taking the time to read or listen to this book.

good

it's good and informative, but it doesn't flow. ot seems to skip from one story to another with out really finishing the last. I had it on audio and found that if you didnt pay attention at all times it was easy to get lost and end up having to rewind it.
