From Dak To to the Tet Offensive, John Leppelman saw it all. In three tours of duty, he made combat jumps, spent months of fruitless effort looking for the enemy, watched as his budies died because of lousy leadership and lousy weapons. He saw the war as few others did, and lives to tell about the valor and sacrifice that outlived the dead.

About the Author:

John Leppelman was a paratrooper in the 173rd Airborne, serving three tours of duty in Vietnam. He then wrote about his military service and experiences in Blood on the Risers: An Airborne Soldier’s Thirty-Five Months in Vietnam.

From AudioFile:

Author Leppelman's recollections of the Vietnam War restrictthemselves to day-by-day life in combat at the expense ofcommentary. Scott Sowers takes full advantage of the memoir's shortsentences and strong language by molding his delivery to capture theauthor's bitterness and ambivalence about the war, feelings manyAmericans had at the time. Listeners face a military lingo ofundefined acronyms and abbreviations (MVA, RVN, R&R, Deuce and a half,1049), which occupy every paragraph, and an abridgment that suffersfrom gaps and confusing transitions. The performance's rebellious andbelligerent tone portrays a soldier emotionally damaged by war--thisdamage is the audiobook's principal raison d'être.
