WANT TO KNOW WHAT IT WAS REALLY LIKE IN VIETNAM? Shocking, frightening, terrifying and at times brutal, this book details what life was like for soldiers serving in Vietnam, and especially for Special Forces. The American Military are willing and able to disavow all knowledge of such soldiers when they have outlived their usefulness, and the Psychiatric Agencies have neither the knowledge nor expertise to treat returning combat veterans and power within such communities is misused to the patients¿ detriment. A book to be read by every person interested in the Vietnam Conflict from a personal point of view and every person who works within the Medical Profession.
