Strange

It's a bit of a strange book. 'A soldier's journal' turns out to be a story told from a non-combat view. I expected it to be about the Vietnam war but was more about record keeping in a busy office. Covering sending letters to the families of soldiers killed in action to how to keep a typewriter working in high humidity. There is also a lot of repeating where the writer tells us something that he repeats later, sometimes using exactly the same text.
If you're looking for a war story this isn't it. Try Matterhorn by Karl Marlantes

Dire-don’t bother

Pretty poor book by a very opinionated rear echelon member of the army, not a combat soldier. Don’t bother with this book. Read one by a proper combat soldier.
