Vietnam from a Swedish perspective Jun 6, 2007
There are few books about foreign volunteers in the US Armed Forces during the Vietnam War. This is one of the few.
I only know of two Swedish citizens who volunteered for the United States during the Vietnam war. Both were accepted and served in the US Marine Corps (USMC). However, if you think this book is mostly about the author's time in the USMC you'll be disappointed. This is the story of Bjorn Dahlin's whole life. Still, this should not stop you from reading this book as it is a moving and unusual story about many vital themes for everybody: life and death, love, hate and God.
Truly written for God's Glory Feb 5, 2004
I read the book after my husband, a retired Marine, and I met Bjorn, the only Swedish citizen to fight as a Marine in the Vietnam War. This book tells of the power of God to transform an abused, hurt and angry young man into a glorious witness of Jesus. The routes Bjorn travelled toward his destiny are a fascinating read. Knowing the loving husband, gentle father, and true pastor that Bjorn is now truly shows his story to be a miracle.
He has lived a very special life! Jan 15, 2004
This is the book about Bjorn who grew up in Sweden and had a very difficult childhood. He found his identity in the US Army during the Vietnam War but then had an encounter with Jesus and decided to fight in the Lords Army instead! This was not an easy life either but this book tells aobut how God led him to people who could help him and his family in fantastic ways! I really recommend this book and I do hope that Bjorn will write another one to tell us what happened the following years up till now!

As a ten year old boy i watch Björn Dahlin on the Swedish TV. Hi was anonyms to the Swedish people at this time 1982. But after the TV show had his story become some thing the Swedish people don't forget.
As a christian and as an officer i always have Björn Dahlins story on my mind.
