From Dak To to the Tet Offensive, John Leppelman saw it all. In three tours of duty, he made combat jumps, spent months of fruitless effort looking for the enemy, watched as his budies died because of lousy leadership and lousy weapons. He saw the war as few others did, and lives to tell about the valor and sacrifice that outlived the dead.

From the Paperback edition.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Blood on the Risers 22. Mai 2000
Normally, I do not read Vietnam books. And, since this is less than positive, my statement is brief. I was in one of the author's units: 329th Trans. Co. (the Army Riverboats). And it was because of that reason that I purchased the book. But when I got to a remark that went something like " ... just more gooks that needed killing:" I threw the book away. Amazon will not allow this note on the Web, but the publishers of the book allowed that very negative comment to be in print.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Why this war was lost 17. Februar 2005
The common denominator of John Leppelman's three tours of duty in Vietnam shows clearly why it was not possible to win this war: poor leadership ("higher-higher" REMFs), and poor motivation on the part of the troops ("who gives a f..."). It is also obvious that most of the Vietnamese people did not want to be liberated by John, his buddies, or, for that matter, by his government.
As a personal account it is an excellent book. It shows the war from the standpoint of the soldier who finds himself in a situation in which he has no other choice than to fight. There is no melodrama and no heroics. There are no endless diatribes about the morality of war, and there are no analyses with the benefit of hindsight. The language is terse, factual, often sarcastic, and easy to read.
This is not the ultimate word on Vietnam. However, it is an interesting piece of the puzzle which constitutes this war.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A real eye opener 6. Juni 2000
I am joining the Army on an ROTC scholarship and this book taught me what kind of an officer to be. His words spoke true of the horrible war and I agree on every point he made. His accounts of Vietnam made me feel what they all went through, if you like war stories read this book,if you don't like war stories read this book for an education on life.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Frank Walthers 18. Mai 2000
On August 2nd, 1969 - The Walther's family was informed that Frank was missing in action. This went on for six (6) grueling weeks. Your book was the only factual account of the events that led to Frank's death. I was known as "the Polack", grew-up with Frank, burried him and served with the 101st Airborne (Vietnam 67-68). John - thank you for writing this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Book Must Read 10. März 2000
Von John
This book is a page turner. On my forth time reading it. It seems as if you are right along side with John during his three tours. From the Herd to River Boats to the Charlie Rangers he did it all. Must read if you like to read about Vietnam. No bull tells it like, what it really was. Thanks for the true story of Vietnam John.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Stunning Read! 30. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
The best book I have ever read about the Vietnam war. No bull - straight commentary on 101st, and LRRP duty in Vietnam 67 - 69. I could not put this book down, a must read!

Although I was barely old enough to remember the Vietnam war I felt like I was there when I read John's book. John had a way of making you feel like you yourself were there with him. The first real truth about the Vietnam war. John's book is the only book that I have read cover to cover without ever putting it down.
