This is a riveting account of the inept and incredible, brilliant and absurd, hilarious and sometimes tragic events witnessed by Lieutenant Terrance R. Dinan in Vietnam from April 1967 to November 1968. If you have ever served anywhere at any time and/or understand the meaning of SNAFU, this is a must read.-Lieutenant Dinan was a member of Advisory Team #96, Command Team of MACV IV, headquartered in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho and billeted at Eakin Compound. He writes: "I learned about an exceptional culture and its people in a remarkably beautiful and abundant land, even as it was caught in the disaster of war. I learned to understand the qualities of true leadership while experiencing the exercise of power and position at its best and at its worst. I experienced the light of levity. Though dark and daunting as many encounters in life may be, there bubbles to the surface that humorous element inherent in most human endeavors that somehow balances our thinking and keeps our heads about us when reason is unreasonable. The events he recounts prove man's capacity to find honor and humor under the most dire of circumstances. This book is even funnier than the MASH TV series.
