About this title


Written with honesty and humour, There It Is brings us Les Brown’s compelling, grunt’s-eye view of his tour in the Vietnam War.

In the raw language of soldiers, Brown describes what it was like to move through dense jungle in unbearable heat; to live in a world of perpetual danger and disease; to confront the enemy in battle; and to see his buddies die. Brown tells of his struggle to survive, a struggle which ultimately leads him to take a risky, rebellious stand.

Featuring a scene-setting introduction by Global Television News anchor Peter Kent, There It Is is a powerful, personal account of war, and a surprising reminder of the role played by thousands of Canadians in Vietnam.

From the Back Cover:

“Few books, if any, have conveyed the demoralizing senselessness of the conflict as concisely....Brown’s descriptive passages of life in a combat unit will ring true to anyone who has been a soldier.”
Globe and Mail

“Of the countless books, magazine articles, documentaries, and even feature movies, nothing quite comes as close to capturing the madness that was the Vietnam War as There It Is.”
esprit de corps

“Brown’s story captures the futility, the chaos, and the anarchy of combat from the perspective of an infantryman, a proud ‘grunt.’”
Winnipeg Free Press
