My grandfathers book

My grandfather wrote this book! I was pleased to see that everyone who read it enjoyed it. Before he passed we would take walks and he would tell me and my sister stories of when he was in vietnam. I am very glad I had the chance to hear the stories from him, and I am glad they were passed on to anyone who reads them!

How Refreshing!

There are many books written by pilots and/or Vietnam vets dealing in their personal experiences. This book, however, is different in two respects. Firstly, as the author points out, most military pilots have an engineering/scientific orientation as as a result, most books written by pilots "feel" as if written by engineers. Lieut. Col. Moriarty, however, is a man of the humanities and his book shows! He succeeds in conveying the profesional aspect of his war together with the humor encountered. The writer and his book are intelligent, sensitive and funny! The second respect is in that this work is devoid of the over-patriotic, gung ho, testosterone OD style that is so prevalent in books written by military men. This book is well worth the read!

Misleading title. Was not what I expected, but enjoy the book anyhow.

If you know Eugene Lacy Wheeler (MIA) you'll need this!

This book is excellent! I got it because it has a chapter on my adopted POW, Eugene, and ended up reading the whole book.Those who know of Gene, must get this book. On pages 133-64, it has radio contact with Eugene and AO Chuck Hatch. This book is also very well detailed and is a must read. I'm proud to have it in my book collection.

Vietnam- From the man who saw the best in everyhting.

Ground Attack Vietnam is a book about the lighter side of Vietnam life. It tells the stories and experiences of a Marine trying to make the best of their time away from home. I had the opportunity to meet the author of this book a few years back, and he told me some of the stories that were in the book. Right after that I went and bought the book. I am pleased to say, each story was even more entertaining than the last. I highly recommend this to enyone who is interested in hearing both sides of Vietnam.
