Biographical account of an officer's service in combat operations conducted by one of the most inept armies ever placed into an almost impossible positions of meaningless occupation among people who could not appreciate the trouble taken to oppress them. Individual portraits of the American field officers and fighting men, during their service in the jungles of Viet Nam. Embracing accounts of battles, the unrelenting losses, frustration, anger, and fear experienced by a platoon of soldiers. Touches upon the thin membrane of hopes that steels men in extremis, and the "religion"-- entirely uninformed by any scripture or any experience of any divine being -- which a few men professed. ( )
