Eyes of the Blind, the second in the John Joseph Sharpe trilogy series following America's Diplomats and leading into Above all, is a forceful saga set in the Vietnam conflict's initial phase as support for the war effort wanes amidst the media coverage's most exploitative stage. Following his second battle wound in Operation Attleboro, young Private Delarosa earns his way out of combat, but becomes entangled in his best friend Jay Sharpe's driving desire to remain in the infantry and signs a waiver to remain on the line. Together, the two rapidly rise in rank while enduring a downward spiral in moral as political agendas replace aggressive military tactics, chronicling the best and worst of that difficult era.
