U.S. Marine Advisors in Vietnam. They worked closely with their Vietnamese counterparts, sharing the dangers, privations, local politics, tactical victories, and ultimate defeat as part of the long saga of the Vietnam War. John Miller, a co-van himself, has captured their experiences in this very readable, often humorous, sometimes poignant book. This is an introspective and thought-provoking look at an unusual mission in a war in an inscrutable culture at a time when Americans and their values were under fire. The book is in good condition, with clean, bright tightly bound pages.Minor foxing on edges of pages. Owner's name on endpaper. Cover and dust jacket very good.
