I got this book because I loved the movie, this book is so much better.. This book is written so well it’s more of a black comedy than the movie. There is no better book at the moment that displays what the Aus soldier went thru in Vietnam. It’s a short intense, witty book .

Loved this book so much I listened to it twice. Colonel Hackworths story from Korea to Vietnam is by far the best memoir from a Career Military man. You will be gripped as he becomes more disillusioned with the Military and Vietnam war. Must read

Great follow up to “We Few”

Very different take on a soldier’s tour in Vietnam. I found as the Author stats he is a history teacher and the book was wrote to sound more like term paper report than the individual’s experience in Vietnam at times. That being said heaps of info and still very interesting.
