This collection of some 200 anecdotes emanating from the war in Vietnam presents a realistic picture of the ups and downs of American's Best serving a tour in Vietnam. A potpourri of booze, sex, satire, humor, and, of course, not to be forgotten, fire-fights with "Charlie," and death.
Author’s say "when the hard-core Bonnie Rat returns home from a tour in Vietnam, he also has no qualms about telling it how it is." This is precisely what the authors have done in Salmagundi Vietnam. Often their accounts dwell on the ugly side of the war, but for the most part they have included a good measure of good ol’ GI humor, that special virtue of the American fighting man that enables him to make the most of any situation.
