The extraordinary betseller that provides a close-up look unlike any other, at the American experience in Vietnam. Powerful, vivid, compassionate, and heartbreaking, here is a very personal and yet universal grunt's-eye-view of the hopeless brutality and the ultimate, and seemingly endless horror where men and governments sacrificed their morality and the souls of their nation.

He has written for the New York Times, Washington Post, the Boston Globe, and the Los Angeles Times; he is a contributing editor for Esquire magazine.
