"The best Vietnam War novels yet for this age range." - KIRKUS REVIEWS

Ivan has never backed down from a fight - especially when it comes to fighting for what's right. Now, as war erupts in Vietnam, he wants nothing more than to fight for his country as a soldier in the US Army, just as his father did in World War II.

But Vietnam is not the war Ivan was expecting. Glory does not come so easily in the jungle. And for the first time, Ivan is forced to question what he's really fighting for . . . and whether it's a fight he can hope to win.

From Vietnam Book Two: Sharpshooter

The early morning air is cut up with rifle shots coming at us from maybe two hundred yards inland. Every man hits the deck. Corporal Lightfoot fairly lights up the entire jungle with machine-gun fire. The other guys pepper the area blindly with rifle shots. It is a bright and sunny morning and there isn't much hope of seeing where the shots are coming from. Muzzle flashes are faint, and these guys are good with the foliage, because there doesn't seem to be any movement out there anywhere.

"Private Bucyk!" Parrish screams at me. "Do you know what you are supposed to be doing with that thing, or does somebody need to help you?"

"Oh," I say like a simpleton. "Oh, yes, sir." I had made the cardinal error, already, of letting myself get overwhelmed and watching the action. My father would slap me stupid right now.

And, as if it has all been perfectly coordinated for Kuns and me to be arriving in-country and making our mark on it at the same exact time, we both let off our big mother grenades simultaneously, listen to them whistle across the sky, and watch them land in the same spot.
