William Stuart begins his service in the Navy at Survival, Escape, Reconnaissance and Evasion Training School in North Carolina, leading to service in Vietnam
A riveting story and characters, which made you feel like you knew them personally. You share their hurt, fears and losses. A great novel about VietNam.
Old vet classic that I was happy to reread. The character development is outstanding. Fully articulating the choices and motivations of wildly different individuals.
This author captured the complexity of the Vietnam War through the eyes of the Warriors. The characters and the circumstances they experienced were absolute credible. Great read.
My mother checked this out for me a long time ago when I was recuperating from a motorcycle accident, her knowing I like Vietnam novels by participants, and it being new, and recommended by the librarian. It is, in my estimation, the best ever written, any and all literary critiques aside, and I've never forgotten it. I had her re-check it and I re-read it, in fact. I forgot the title over the years, but the other night it crossed my mind and I Google searched 'Vietnam novel Navy forward fire control officer', and there it was. It arrived today and once again I get to experience "the kid with the 50 cal. 'sidearm'"!

An interesting social look at the relationships that form between men in combat. I enjoyed this book very much and highly recommend it to anyone interested in the Viet Nam war and the men who fought it.
One of the top five works of fiction of the Vietnam War. Excellent.
