Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0965322718, Mass Market Paperback)

Daily letters written to my fiance from Viet Nam. Since I didn't want her to worry, I wrote about the people (I spoke Vietnamese) and the place. As we went from her not talking to me to being engaged in six dates, I thought she ought to know who she was going to marry. She waited for me and we were married. While this is a book women love, the content is such that it has been used in both high school and college courses on Viet Nam. The book, although drawn from a violent experience, is gentle, humorous, thought provoking, eclectic and completely different from other books.

The last letter is one to Jane Fonda twenty-five years later. (She has a copy of the book.)

Most frequent comments: "It made me laugh and it made me cry." "Now I understand the war." "Now I understand my (husband, uncle, brother)." "Can be read at many levels." "Compelling." "Unusual."

Had to self publish but am in my third print simply by word of mouth.
