Summary

"A combat veteran's astute look at the Vietnam War, both captivating and emotionally forthcoming." (Kirkus Reviews)

In this frank, engaging memoir, Captain Chamberlain chronicles the missions, personal courage and sacrifice of the Marines he was privileged to command; painfully recalls the unspeakable order he and his Marines were forced to obey; and the cover-up which followed. Nearly four decades later, Captain Chamberlain makes right what was wrong; brings closure to the family of a fallen and abandoned warrior; and attempts to put to rest the guilt which plagued his military career and life. Unlike most books on the Viet Nam War, this book is written at a tactical level by a Marine Company Commander who was there.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Usual biased account of an unlawful and unfair unjust war on a peaceful people

I grew up in the uk during this period and believed the hype that all things American were good, viet cong , bad.
The constant bleating of ex servicemen about how tough they had it, whilst killing millions of people in their homeland is nothing short of pathetic. The Vietnamese lost millions of people, both military and even more so, civilians to the most outrageous killing campaign of the 20th century, more ordinance expended by the good ol Ununitited State of America is still killing people even today, since 1975 when the US lost the war, nearly a quarter of a million people have been killed or maimed by their “ liberating “ bombs, yet they contribute nothing to the clear up, America is, indeed an Evil, evil country

Brought back vivid memories

I was in I Corp in 1965, two years before Capt Chamberlain and thankfully did not have an experience as intense as his. His gripping story had me spell bound, especially when thinking how much the war escalated in the same area I had been in. The places were the same but the experiences very different. I was a USMCR 1st Lt. and found the feelings the captain felt about the disposition of the war to be precisely the same as what I grew to experience. Years later, I have put it pretty much all behind me, but it's encouraging to know I wasn't alone.

Reflecting back

I have read several books on Vietnam. I really, really enjoyed this one. A lot of the terms that we use bring me back to my days in Vietnam (1966 through 1967) as a military policeman with the 377 Security Police squadron at Tan son Kunut AFB Republic of Vietnam. Although, I cannot say that I saw all that the writer spoke to you. However, I can say I have seen enough. I recognize a lot of the terms and slang that were used in this book. It brought back memories of good and bad times. I reflect back on many of the young men and our allies that were killed in Vietnam and process through the base. Being a military policeman you see many, many things that you hide because of the ugliness. I salute the offer and his truthfulness about what happened to him during that time. I still, salute all of the individuals that serve this country during a very, very difficult. And our time.

Hard to pause it!

I thouroughly enjoyed this book! The writing illustrated the story vividly in my mind and it was enthralling to hear the courageous memoir. It is extremely well written and the years of care, consideration, and research shine through. The narrator helps bring Doug's experiences to life and makes it an enjoyable listen. I'd highly recommend this read.

Time well spent

Fascinating true story that needed to be told by Chamberlain. Gilmore’s Narration voice was complimentary to this epic story.
