Item description for Dodge City Blues by Dan Guenther...
Lieutenant Sam Gatlin is back in Vietnam because he has something to prove--to himself. This time, Vietnam takes him deeper into the mysterious yin-yang of the society. From the opening events, there are betrayals, spies, hidden secrets and the beginning of questions--of the meaning of war, of loyalty, of death and love--that Sam might finally understand by the surprising end of the novel. War as the Conradian heart of darkness and life in Vietnam as seen through a Greene-like quiet American. Full of rich characters, multi-cultural soldiers and civilians---and with a protagonist bent, against all odds, on "doing the right thing."

Dodge City Blues May 12, 2008
Right after I read China Wind, I purchased Dodge City Blues. Both books blew me away. As a Marine Corpsman serving in the same location that these books took place, I am amazed at how accurately Dodge City Blues depicts the life that Marines spent in Vietnam. It is well written, interesting and a downright great book. Thanks for reopening some pleasant and some unpleasant memories.
A Look Into The Vietnam War Jan 28, 2008
This book is a must read if you've read the first book China Wind. For those that have not experienced the Vietnam War, this book provides a portal into that period of history from someone that has been there. This was a very interesting book.
