About the Author:

Dale Reich was raised in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. After graduation from high school in 1965 he attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and two years later he volunteered for the draft. He left for Vietnam in June, 1968, and returned home one year later. He holds a BA in Journalism and a MA in History from the University of Wisconsin.

From Booklist:

The tiny Wisconsin town of Oconomowoc lost 10 young men to the war in Vietnam. One who survived was Dale Reich, who approximately 30 years later has put his 365-day experience into words. Reich was in the infantry until a bout with malaria almost killed him, after which he served both in the rear and with his troops until an offer from the army's Public Information Office put him in a position to observe and reflect on the war. He successfully recounts how for every soldier the goal of winning the war became secondary to surviving the 365 days and then rotating out--in one piece. In six months, dreams of medals and John Wayne-like heroics gave way to the reality of avoiding enemy rockets, shrapnel, and booby traps. Even with a PIO position, the enemy was always close and within firing distance. Reich has added to the extensive Vietnam War literature a readable and profoundly personal account of his year there.
