Reviews - What do customers think about Dmz Diary: A Combat Marine's Vietnam Memoir?
AWESOME BOOK Jun 7, 2007
An excellent first hand narrative. Well written. After reading it, I thought that most vietnam war movies that have been made must have stolen ideas from this book. A beautiful example of a person coming full circle on the realization of the reality of war. I highly reccommend this book, I could not put it down.

The story of this transformation is an important addition to the history of the American experience in Vietnam.
