Book Summary Circle of Helmets is a poignant and fascinating account of one infantryman's tour of duty in Vietnam during some of that war's heaviest fighting - as told through first hand accounts written by that young soldier just hours after actual combat, coupled with raw and intense poems about those battlefield experiences written by that same man some thirty years later. Follow the author's journey from a brash, inexperienced youth eager for his first combat mission to a seasoned, hardened veteran striving to do his duty as a combat leader and come out alive. Honest and powerful, Circle of Helmets is a unique and very personal portrayal of combat in the Vietnam War and one man's efforts to face his memories of that war decades later. Forget any other poetry books you have ever read- this one unforgettable!
