Revealing in scope and detail. This book was recommended to me by a good friend and history buff.
The revelations come not from the well researched findings but from the context of "seasoning" experienced by the 5 featured Vietnam vets.
It was thoroughly impressive and fascinating.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
If it did not jump around the characters so much, chopping and changing made it hard to follow
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
