Sgt. Rock: Last Warrior Standing Reviews
Just finished this one tonight. Upon closing the book, I had mixed emotions. Some 40+ years after Rocky's tour ended, plenty of time has elapsed for those involved, and those who weren't to have their thoughts about Vietnam evolve.
For someone who really wants to know what it was like
This book was a real eye opener for me. In this true story, Sgt. Rock guides his readers through his year in Vietnam. From the day-to-day drudgery of sleeping in the mud and rain with clothes that haven't come off in a month and empty bellies, because the C-rations couldn't be delivered in the storm, to the heart-pounding terror of marching up Hamburger Hill with bullets flying in every direction.
I got this from Amazon and began reading it within a week. It turned out to be the kind of book I read in bites, as I don't want to devour the entire narrative too soon. Better to enjoy in small morsels. That way you can digest and relish each mouthful. I read a chapter a night and couldn't wait to pick it up before bed each evening. I wouldn't be surprised if a large publishing house puts this gem out in a mass-market edition, it's that good. The photographs are amazingly pristine, and the prose flows freely like a river to the sea. Some incredible experiences are recounted, and some unforgettable and valiant men are depicted. One reading does not do this book justice. Very highly recommended.
