Publisher's Summary

If you or someone you know has combat-related PTSD, you need to listen to this book.

Broken Samurai is the story of Danny, who spent his first days of combat duty in Vietnam at Khe Sanh during the Tet Offensive. Death surrounded him daily. After losing his best friend to the enemy, he went from scared to numb and he began seeking revenge. When Danny returned home, he couldn't move beyond his experiences in Vietnam, and began looking for ways to recreate them, if only to feel alive one more time.

His journey from hero to hitman may not be as unique as it seems....

"I believe one of the biggest crimes you can commit is to break your code. It is the worst thing you can possibly do." - Danny

Danny admired the warrior's code of the Samurai: protect the weak, oppose evil, and fight the good fight. Joining the Marines in 1967 to defend democracy, Danny saw some of worst fighting of the Vietnam War. His training didn't prepare him for the trauma of being surrounded by endless death and the likelihood of his own. After his best friend was brutally killed, Danny became angry, depressed, and numb, and the only thing that could make him feel alive again was witnessing violent death.

All Danny had left of himself after Vietnam was the warrior's code, until the day he broke it....
