From the Publisher:

This book is built around Fred Edward's journals, sent home during his first tour in Vietnam in 1966-67. His own meticulous research fits his individual experiences into a larger context, through Postscripts, extensive notes, and a thorough historical Chronology. The book is formatted so that the reader can move easily between the events in Vietnam in 1967-68 and the broader context as revealed through later research. The reader can thus move between Edward's personal experiences in Vietnam and the larger historical forces that sent him there. As a piece of the puzzle of Vietnam, this book holds great significance to those who were there and for students of that war.

About the Author:

FRED EDWARDS culminated a thirty-year Marine Corps career as a lieutenant colonel. After the events narrated in this book, he returned to Vietnam in 1973 before retiring from the Marines in 1979. He then began a second career as a businessman and writing consultant. Edwards lives in South Pasadena, Florida, where he continues to write about sailing.
