Publisher's Summary

In mid-December 1968, after recovering from wounds sustained in a murderous mission, Gary Linderer returned to Phu Bai to complete his tour of duty as a LRP. His job was to find the enemy, observe him, or kill him - all the while behind enemy lines, where success could be as dangerous as discovery.

©1991 Gary A. Linderer (P)2019 Tantor

Must read for anyone who enjoys Vietnam era LRRP

NOTE TO THE BELOW REVIEWER AND ANYONE ELSE WHO IS CONSIDERING THIS BOOK AND OTHERS LIKE IT———

In your review of this book you mentioned this book is up there with "dead center" and you would love other books similar to this. I've listened to every Vietnam war era memoir on audible and I suggest these books based on your taste, since you enjoyed "dead center" and this book.

You should listen to these following Vietnam era memoirs :

SILENT HERO's- Rick Greenberg (LRRP/Recon memoir , excellent story)
GOOD TO GO - Harry Constance (NAVY SEAL Memoir... Amazing book, great story. Author over 300 combat missions and over 32 military citations) a must listen!
WE FEW- Nick Brokhausen (MACV-SOG/ Recon team Habu memoir ) Great book
WHISPERS IN TALL GRASS - NIck Brokhausen (second book MACV-SOG/ RC Habu ) Great book
MEN IN GREEN FACES - Gene Wentz (Navy SEAL Memoir... Excellent book)
CHERRIES- John Podlaski

There's far too many to recall right now, but I will edit as I recall other great audiobooks on the subject for anyone interested in these great Vietnam memoirs. I listed silent Hero's first based on the first reviewer of "eyes behind the lines" taste based on their review. It's a great book, but out of the list in this review "Men in green faces" is most likely the best story.

I want more.

This is the second best book I've heard next to Dead Center by Ed Kluger. It was hard to find a book like this and I dont think I'll find another. I caught myself almost looking around as if I was actually in the moment. Totally gripped me. Thank you for it.

Amazing is the headline this audio book deserves

Just when you think all the great Vietnam books have already been written something like this one suddenly comes along and bam surprise. This book is written with a straight forward approach but with terrific detail and flow and you do not want it to end, it is definitely is my top 5 Vietnam books. It is really hard to stop listening once you begin

The narrator David Colacci is a perfect fit for this and everything from the writing to the narration flows smoothly, the author is not only a decorated veteran but also knows how to tell a story and I mean that big time.

Damned good book

I have always enjoyed first hand narratives of war experiences and the author did an excellent job describing his time in Vietnam. The LRRP's and Rangers were phenomenal warriors and I have the utmost respect for what they accomplished. Additionally the narrator did an excellent job.
Stay a LRRP, stay alive. Airborne.

Good Book

I liked the Diary format and the detail of the missions. It got me listening intently as the writer described moving through the jungle, or overnight in a defensive perimeter and hearing enemy movement.
