This book tells the compelling story of the average US infantryman in the Vietnam War (1955-1975). Beginning with conscription, enlistment, Basic Training, and Advanced Individual Training at the Armed Forces Induction Center at Fort Polk (the infamous “Tigerland”), it goes on to explore the day-to-day realities of service in Vietnam, from routine tasks at the firebase to search-and-destroy missions, rocket attacks, and firefights in the field. Weaponry, clothing, and equipment are all described and shown in detailed color plates. A vivid picture of the unique culture and experiences of these soldiers emerges – from their vernacular to the prospect of returning to an indifferent, if not hostile, homeland.

.This is a good book for anyone who wants to understand the day to day tempo of an infantry unit on the move. I was there in '68 but had forgotten much. The author of this book remembers it all. I had a few quibbles - I thought fire support bases were great - Barbed wire out front, overhead cover in the bunkers, and deep trenches allowed me to sleep a little better. I also believe we carried our gas mask "out in the field". Other then those two items, Mr Rottman obviously lived the life far longer then the average infantryman but also did research. An enjoyable, informative book.

Brings my Army days back to life with startling clarity. Good photos and very clear text made this a good purchase.

I am a Vietnam Vetern and I collect all types of Vietnam information to pass on to future generations so that what we did will not be forgotten.

....and I do not exaggerate. In overall terms of presentation and artwork, this is probably one of the better osprey books touching on modern military subjects. Using a composite character, such as found here, should be the framework for all Warrior titles. The artwork by Kevin Lyles, criminally underused as an artist, is probably his best yet. About the only suggestion I might have is to change the cover.

This book gives one a good feel of what it was to be an Infantry man in the Vietnam war. From basic training to combat and being a short-timer. However it only seems to use the testimony of those who voluntarily enlisted rather than unwilling draftees therefore providing the views of professional soldiers. It also only scratches the surface when broaching the subject of American troop atrocities, and nobody from the "rear" is ever mentioned in this or any other book about Vietnam. It feels like a slightly sanitised official version of events. For the flipside of this account read Nam by Mark Baker
