In Vietnam, a new guy loses his rawness fast. Almost as fast as he can lose his life.
Gabriel Sauers of Two Squad is newly arrived in Nam, a graduate of basic training ill-prepared for the realities of war. In the coming months, he'll get his real training: incoming mortars and relentless enemy attacks will turn the green recruit into a death-hardened veteran . . . or kill him.

Everyone is gunning for the New Guy Gabriel Sauers of Two Squad is a soldier, newly arrived in Vietnam--a country too beautiful to invite so savagely unreal a war. But Gabriel won't be a New Guy for long. He'll go through incoming mortars, he'll see the enemy alive. He'll wander through a hell that will turn the green recruit lucky enough to survive into a death-hardened veteran, longing for nothing more than a return to the world of hot baths and cold beer, no bullets, and no noise. Now, 40 years later, he is grappling with an action on the verge of his grandson Seth's deployment to Iraq that will change both their lives forever.
