9781475932126: A Hellish Place of Angels: Con Thien: One Man's Journey

Eighteen-year-old Daryl J. Eigen joined the US Marines to become a man. He quickly discovered he was just another boy on the ground as he fought in the Vietnam War with the Marine Corps' 3/26 and 2/9 infantry battalions in the Third Marine Division. In this memoir, Eigen gives voice to his and his fellow veterans' experiences of the Vietnam War that culminated in September of 1967 in the brutal battle of Con Thien. Through letters written home, blended with published media and real experiences, A Hellish Place of Angels provides an in-depth and riveting insight into war and documents a spiritual journey that took one tour of duty to experience and forty-five years to understand. Praise for A Hellish Place of Angels "The author employed a unique approach in this riveting memoir, sharing his personal letters home to his family, then comparing what he wrote in those letters home with the horrors of combat that he recalled experiencing, as well as articles published in various publications describing those battles. This brutally honest and realistic portrayal of combat Marines in Vietnam should be required reading in every academic institution's American history class". -James P. Coan, author of Con Thien: The Hill of Angels "Dr. Daryl Eigen's life really is a true story-the story of a young American who enlisted in the Marines and paid a heavy price in body, mind, and spirit for his intelligence, courage, and convictions". -Mark Brady, PhD, author of The Wisdom of Listening
