I expected this to be a war story -- blood and guts and excesses of testosterone - but what I found was a thought provoking novel that brought to life a country and people that I wish I knew more about. The quality of the story telling and the descriptions of Vietnam and its people will have you hooked from the first pages. It then slowly builds to a thrilling
end with an outcome that is as inscrutable as the people depicted.
