A reporter who believed in getting his boots muddy, Donald Kirk visited various line units of the Americal Division and 101st Airborne during the withdrawal phase of the Vietnam War. His accounts of brave but unmotivated grunts ring true. Kirk also conducted extensive interviews with support troops at major bases like Chu Lai and Da Nang, where morale was even worse than in the field, and his accounts of the drug and racial problems that beset the US Army during the latter years of the war are also fair and accurate.
