A secret mission sends the author to Vietnam's Mekong Delta, the bread basket of old Indo - China. He uncovers a sophisticated enemy supply network unknown to our military hierarchy. Using intelligence data covertly gathered in Cambodia and analyzed at the Center for Naval Analyses in Arlington, Virginia they discover and destroy Vietcong forces and interdict VC supply lines with a mixture of intrigue and romance. A U. S. Naval story never told, complete with declassified maps from the Office of Naval Intelligence, and illuminating pictures of Saigon and archaic areas of the Delta taken by the author forty - six years ago, a depiction of "old Saigon" and real relationships between North and South Vietnam are related. Headquartered in Saigon, the true interaction between our Navy and Army ( MACV ) brass couched in the background of wartime Saigon, often referred to as the " Paris of the Orient", and Washington, D. C. is insightfully told.

Join me on my first tour of duty in the Navy - what went on in Boot camp, the schools I attended, what life was really like on board an aircraft carrier that was better known for fires than anything else! Come with me on a haze gray and underway misadventure on a guided missile destroyer that had trouble shooting its own missiles (let alone torpedoes) and all of the unimaginable things that happened to me...the people I met and what I witnessed in between. Telling things as they happened, it's a hilarious, serious, yet very straightforward look at life as a Radioman in the U.S. Navy during the Cold War period (1980-1984). So set the sea and anchor detail, it's time to hit the high seas!

In 1970, John Kowalski is one of many young, naive teenage soldiers sent to Vietnam to fight in an unpopular war. Dubbed “Cherries” by their more seasoned peers, these newbies suddenly found themselves thrust into the middle of a terrible nightmare - literally forced to become men overnight. On-the-job-training is intense, however, most of these teenagers were hardly ready to absorb the harsh mental, emotional, and physical stress of war. When coming under enemy fire for the first time and witnessing death first-hand, a life changing transition that can't be reversed. The author is an excellent story teller, readers testify that they are right there with the characters, joining them in their quest for survival, sharing the fear, awe, drama, and sorrow, witnessing bravery and sometimes, even laughing at their humor. It's a story that is hard to put down. When soldiers return home from war, all are different - changed for life. "Cherries" tells it like it is and when finished, readers will better understand what these young men had to endure, and why change is imminent.

Johnny Got His Gun is an undisputed classic of antiwar literature that’s as timely as ever. “A terrifying book, of an extraordinary emotional intensity.”--The Washington Post "Powerful. . . an eye-opener." --Michael Moore "Mr. Trumbo sets this story down almost without pause or punctuation and with a fury amounting to eloquence."--The New York Times "A book that can never be forgotten by anyone who reads it."--Saturday Review

We make and we break. They were the forward scouts, the mine clearers, the bridge builders, and the tunnel rats. They were frequently not just on the front line, but right at the sharp end of the action. They were the legendary Aussie Sappers, the army engineers, who were literally everywhere in the fighting against the Vietcong. This special breed of soldier lived hard and played hard. They were there at the beginning of the war; they were also among the last to leave. And along the way, they fought with their mates in the infantry and in the tanks to bear the brunt of the Vietcong's revenge. To the rest of the world, Vietnam was a conflict of ideologies. On the ground it was a battle of wits and the sappers were at the forefront. This is their story.

For those men and women who served in Vietnam and are curious as to what the Navy did there. For Vietnam veteran families and friends. For the young and old who want to know more about that particularly turbulent period from 1968-71, both here at home and in Vietnam. This is a memoir that combines hundreds of stories and memories into a narrative about a young man who begins his story at the draft board in Houston, and ends it on his last day of active duty in Seattle, and all that happened in between. It captures the mood of the young people of the day, while following the maturation of a green Naval officer into a confident Vietnam veteran. Essentially a view of daily life in the Navy of 40 years ago, it is abundant in characters, places and events that challenge the imagination.

Praise for the original edition: "A haunting chorus of voices, a moving deeply disturbing evocation of an era." --San Francisco Chronicle "Myra MacPherson's book belongs with the best of the works on Vietnam, and there has been no better body of war literature that I know of." --Joseph Heller "A brilliant and necessary book... this stunning depiction of Vietnam's bitter fruit is calculated to agitate even the most complacent American." --Philadelphia Inquirer "There have been many books on the Vietnam War, but few have captured its second life as memory better than Long Time Passing." --Washington Post Book World "A most perceptive and fascinating account of the continuing impact of the Vietnam experience.... As this important book makes clear, we will be paying the costs for Vietnam for long years to come. Myra MacPherson not only lived through the Vietnam years, she writes with the insight of one still deeply caught up in the issues of that tragedy." --George McGovern "Enthralling reading... full of deep and strong emotions." --New York Times This new edition of a classic book on the impact of the Vietnam War on Americans reintroduces the haunted voices of the Vietnam era to a new generation of readers. In a new introduction, Myra MacPherson reflects on what has changed, and what hasn't, in the years since these interviews were conducted, explains the key points of reference from the 1980s that feature prominently in them, and brings the stories of her principal characters up-to-date.
