About this title


Ever wind up someplace you wish you hadn't gone? Abruptly drafted, Jerry Simpson was soon inducted into the strange and difficult ordeal of army life in Vietnam in the late sixties. Forced to leave his pregnant wife, he had a firsthand awakening to the brutality of war. A rare close-up look at the Vietnam War, The War: 361 days, 12 Hours, and 27 Minutes in Vietnam gives an eye-opening portrayal of this conflict from a young soldier's perspective. Based on one man's experience, this novel shifts from traumatic to humorous. As a soldier who came back to angry citizens calling him a criminal, Gerald A. Spence shares openly the grim reality of war and how young draftees adapted from stable civilian lives to the turmoil in Vietnam. In this moving and fascinating novel, witness the pain of separation and fear of the unknown through one transitioning from citizen to soldier before acclimating back to a hostile society. Join this soldier and see the excitement, humor, and life-changing experiences in The War: 361 Days, 12 Hours, And 27 Minutes in Vietnam.
